JFK's Casket

I got a private message asking about JFK's casket, and a rumor that he was buried at sea. As I understand it, the casket that his body was flown from Dallas to Andrews in was, in fact, dropped into the Atlantic from a C-130B from Langley. However, he was buried at Arlington in another casket that Jackie picked out.

I heard the same thing Sam. It has been rumored that the "Dallas Casket" had to completely disappear so that it would never be a national archived item......

The drop was supposed to have been somewhere off of Nantucket, in a corridor that JFK liked to sail in.

"He said, she said, rumor's, and so many stories........" Who the heck will ever know!

If I'm not mistaken, the crew was from Langley where the 463rd had recently moved from Sewart.
