Does anyone have the date and serial number of an F-100 that crashed on the Nellis Range, possibly in 1968 or 1969?  The pilot, Lt. Robert E. Wilcox, ejected safely. On that same day, another F-100 piloted by Lt. Donald Murgatroyd was damaged in a landing accident at Indian Springs AFB.

The date was March 8, 1960. Murgatroy was in F-100C 53-1770 at Indian Springs and Wilcox was in F-100C 54-1747 at Groom Lake, NV.
