March 4, 1977
The dreadful news were communicated that an
ONA airplane had crashed in Niamey, Niger.
The cargo plane crashed short of the runway while
attempting to land flying in from Paris, France.
It was the ONA flight, McDonnell Douglas
DC-8-63CF aircraft carrying registration
no N8635.

Honoring the memory of two great friends,
Captain John Willard and F/E Sam Barilla.

Together they were on a cargo assignment on
the ONA DC-8 that crashed in Niamey, Niger,
killing them both.

I was part of the accident investigation
and knew them well.
