Gerald Stull

"On May 5, 1958, Lt. Gerald Stull USAF was
returning to Truax Field from a training mission
when his F-102A jet faltered add headed toward
the residential neighborhood along Hudson Park.
Lt Stull forced the jet back toward the lake, at
which time he knew he would have to ditch the
plane into the lake at a steep angle. He ejected
upon impact and died as a result of injuries he
sustained in the crash. His selfless heroism
saved the lives of many and he is remembered
and appreciated by everyone throughout this
