JOINT BASE LEWIS-MCCHORD -- A court martial is scheduled today at Joint Base Lewis-McChord for a C-17 pilot accused of dereliction of duty for a training accident last year in Montana where a paratrooper from Pennsylvania died after landing on a roof.
The Air Force accuses Capt. Jared Foley of reckless conduct for approving an additional airdrop without command approval.
The News Tribune reported Sgt. Francis Campion of Holidaysburg, Pa., was the last out of the plane July 10, 2011, in windy conditions. He was supposed to land at Fort Harrison's Marshall Field but hit a roof and fell to his death.
Campion was training with the West Virginia National Guard and had served in Afghanistan.
Foley serves with McChords' 62nd Airlift Wing. McChord operates 51 of the C-17 transport jets.
