Deceased 30 April 1995.
During the UFO events, Richey (seated in the lower flight deck facing aft) was monitoring communications via headset and responsible for the bombing and navigation equipment. He attended the crew debriefing later in the morning in the office of Gen. Holland, and was not interviewed during the official investigation. In 1980, during a meeting in the Pentagon, McCaslin recalls that Richey claimed to have no recollection of the UFO events.
