In his own words
Crew in Great Bend, KS.
This is a picture of the Krupenski crew. Steve is top left. Top center is Hooser, from the Rio Grande Valley area.
Our crew being rescued by British destroyer.
This is a photo of some of our crew holding an engine cylinder that we replaced inChina at one of the emergence fields that we landed at after losing an engine on a mission. I think we were there two or three days. Note the Chinese soldier. They were not very gung-ho militarily.
