In VFR conditions the two Boeing B-52 Stratofortress bombers approached the same runway at the same time. The two aircraft rammed into each other 900 feet above the ground and crashed. Eight out of 9 aboard 56-661 were killed. Five out of 7 aboard 56-681 were killed. Operator error, in that the pilots of both aircraft failed to maintain safe separation during VFR conditions.
