National Guard Crew Flew Nude

August 20, 1998

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) _ The crew of a Washington Air National Guard refueling plane has been grounded for taking off too much.

The crewmen stripped off their flight suits and flew a mission in the nude.

No safety rules were violated, but the prank last month was considered a serious breach of military discipline, Maj. Philip Logan, an Air National Guard spokesman. The all-male crew could face courts-martials or other discipline.

The KC-135 normally carries a crew of four or five. Logan would not say whether all the men doffed their clothes or why, for that matter.

Except for the breezy attire, the mission went without a hitch, but someone in the unit reported the incident to the commander.
