Elliott See and Charles Bassett were the lead crew for Gemini IX, a mission scheduled for May 1966, all part of the learning curve in the race to the moon. On Feb. 28, 1966, with fog and rain covering Lambert, their military training jet approached too high and began a tight swing around the airport, eventually crashing into Building 101 of the McDonnell complex. Both astronauts died in the crash.
