SAC Commander Gen. John Ryan at Morón AB / Saluting airmen standing by: David Kerr on left, Larry Jachelski on right. This may have been when the general came to rip somebody a new one. B-52s seemed to have a lot of emergencies and needed to land at Moron when Feria was going on or Christmas was coming up, with Seville being a great place to shop. Once Gen Ryan came, emergencies suddenly resolved and all bombers were off the ground by midnight. About eight bombers in all.
