(AP) — Three crewmen parachuted to safety but three others were killed when an Air Force B-1B, the nation's newest strategic bomber, crashed and burned after birds were sucked into the engines, authorities said. The unarmed, $230 million bomber was flying at about 500 feet on a low-level practice bombing run Monday when the pilot reported striking a' flock of birds. Air Force and Federal Aviation Administration officials said. The pilot immediately began climbing and reached an altitude of roughly 15,500 feet, said Bob Buckhorn, an FAA spokesman in Washington, D.C. The pilot then radioed air-traffic controllers that two right engines had caught fire because of "bird ingcstion," Buckhom said. "We're going down," the pilot radioed, according to Laurie King, spokeswoman at Dycss Air Force Base, where the plane was was based.* The four-engine bomber then crashed, spraying 50 acres of flat, eastern Colorado rangeland just south of La Junta with shards of metal, most of them no bigger than a few inches in diameter. "It was just a heck of an explosion," said Greg Ricken, who witnessed the falling plane from his dairy ranch 20 miles away. "It sounded like a sonic boom. It looked kind of like an atomic bomb." The crash was the first involving a production^ model of the B-1B, the nation's newest long-range bomber. A prototype of the B-1B crashed in August 1984, killing one man and injuring two others. The survivors were being treated for minor injuries at the U.S. Air Force Academy hospital in Colorado Springs, and were in good condition, Air Force Master Sgt. Al Dostal said late Monday. : "The other three crew members... are all dead," he Said. The Air Force said the cause of the crash would not be officially listed until an investigation was completed. But officials expressed no doubts that birds could disable a low-flying aircraft. The Air Force says birds caused about $18 million in damage to its aircraft in 1986, including the loss of an F-4E and an F-16. "If you get a large enough bird, or many of them, into the turbines, it can cause problems," said a spokesman for Rockwell International, the plane's manufacturer, who spoke on. condition of anonymity. Rockwell has a contract to build 100 B-IBs for the Air Force and has delivered more than 60. The more than S20 billion conlract lo replace aging B-52 bombers has been controversial because of concerns that their technology will soon be outdated. The plane lhat crashed at 9:34- a.m. Monday had taken off a little more than l'/i hours earlier from Dycss Air Force Base in Abilene, Texas, where it was attached. to the 96lh Bombardment Wing. The Air Force said the planc^ifc equipped with four ejector scats. The B-IB usiplly holds four people, but Air Force officials said two instructors went along. The Air Force identified the dead as Maj. James T. Acklin, 37, of Champaign, 111., an instructor pilot; 1st Lt. Ricky M. Bean, 27, of Farniingtoii, Maine, a student pilot; and Maj. Wayne D. Whitlock, 39, of Johnson City, Tcnn., an instructor defensive systems officer. The survivors were Capl- Joseph S. Butler, 33, of Rocky Mount, N.C., a student defensive systems officer; Capt. Lawrence H. Haskcll, 33, of Harrisburg, Pa., a student aircraft commander; and Maj. William H. Price, 42, of Yuma, Ariz., an instructor offensive systems officer. WASHINGTON (AP) — In his most stinging attack on Robert H. Bork since confirmation hearings began, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee said today he has no doubt the Supreme Court nominee would "come down for government intrusion" in Americans' private lives. Sen. Joseph R. Biden Jr., D-Del., who has refrained until now from making anti-Berk statements while conducting the hearings, said Bork's failure to recognize a constitutional right of privacy troubles him more than any other aspect of the nomination. Biden attacked the nominee's position after three professors said Bork would not likely change his position that the Supreme Court used faulty reasoning when it struck down state laws as intruding on rights of privacy. With the public hearings nearing an end, Senate Majority Leader Robert C. Byrd, D-W.Va., said Monday he had suggested to Biden that the committee send the Bork nomination to the Senate floor without recommendation. Byrd also said it was unlikely the confirmation would brought up for Senate debate and a vote before early in November, a full month or more after the Supreme Court begins its new term with one of its nine seats vacant. "This will give the senators the opportunity to adquately study the hearing and it will give the Senate the opportunity to transact other important business of this nation," Byrd was quoted as saying by aide Christina Evans. Presidential nominations generally are brought to the Senate floor only after approval by a Senate committee. But Byrd, a member of the judiciary panel, said, "I person- ally don't want to vote negatively or positively on this nomination until after it is sent to the Senate floor." Biden, speaking on the right of privacy, told the committc today, "God only knows what will happen to this country if the AIDS crisis reaches the proportions" predicted by some in the medical community. "What will happen to our right of privacy. Where will Judge Bork come down? »» "I am left without any doubt he must come down for government intrusion and against expansion of individual rights." Biden said Bork is the only person "to come before this committee and consistently deny existence of such a constitutionally protected right." But Sen. Alan K. Simpson, R- Wyo., said Bork was only saying that the court was wrong to find a right to privacy when one is not specifically stated in the Constitution. Bork, Simpson said, believed that there would be no limits to privacy claims under such a theory. At the hearings on Monday, a New York pastor said Bork seemed unconcerned when he told the Supreme Court nominee a story about the emotional trauma suffered by a Jewish pupil who declined to read the Bible in school. The Rev. Kenneth L. Dean of Rochester, N.Y., told the Senate Judiciary Committee on Monday that he was not accusing Bork of anti-Semitism, but said he was shocked when Bork — asked to comment on the incident in 1985 — responded: "Well, I suppose he got over it, didn't he?" Bork was asked about the incident two weeks ago at his confirmation hearings. He denied the exchange with Dean took place, and further said he has never taken a position on prayer in public schools. 467-4012 or 459 5949 UKIRH4 PUBLIC NOTICE Medical records seized by the State Department of Health Services in an action regarding Foundation for Comprehensive Health, jnc., will be made available for release to individuals or their authorized agent on October 21-22, 1987.
