Dennis Bauer Haas
Air Force officials yesterday identified the victim of a plane crash on 10 April 1970 near Pine as 1st Lt. Dennis B. Haas, 25, of St. Louis. Denny Haas was in the same 4-ship as Rick Colt when he crashed starting a low level mission. Investigators said the F-100 Super Sabre jet crashed while on a tactical training mission over Northern Arizona. The student pilot was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Alvin Haas.
Haas was from St. Louis. He had already attended 2 years of college
before coming to USAFA. He started out in 6th squadron and was in
17th Squadron at graduation. Mike Freeborn, Mac Phillips, Mike Ellison,
Jim Carr, and I used to run around together for those two first years.
They all visited with me at home in Lamar, CO a couple of times. Caught
Denny making out with my girlfriend on one trip - I kept him as a
buddy but dumped the her! He was really an absolutely great guy.
