Jimmy Craig

Jimmy Craig was badly injured in the crash of a military C-123 aircraft carrying the Army Golden Knights Parachute Team during an air show at the Wilmington Airport on Sunday, Sept. 24, 1961. He was flown to the Burn Center at Brooke Army Medical Center at Fort Sam Houston, Texas where he died shortly after. He never got to see The Battleship North Carolina in her new home.

Getting the ship here was a passion of his, and he, Hugh Morton and many others spent countless hours and a great deal of effort in seeing that dream come true.
