At the trophy presentation, Russell G.
Dougherty, former Commander in Chief of Strategic Air
Command, presented the trophy to the Wing Commander,
Colonel Walter E. Poore, standing second from right.
Beavers is fifth from right, looking straight ahead. He
said he was really nervous standing in front of the
Command's best crews.
After the symposium, the Bomb Wing welcomed
the crew home with a big party, and they celebrated.
In a more casual atmosphere, the Wing Commander
shows off the shiny steel his crew brought home,
Colonel Poore is standing right behind the
big trophy, and Beavers is third from left. A very happy
and exciting night for everyone.
