I was a flying crew chief at DOV by the sea from 1976 to 1980 and 170 was in my flight. I also had flown countless times as a flight engineer in the 3rd squadron until I retired in 2000. The ghost that haunts 170 is suppose to be a crew chief named Nickerson that tried to kick the top of the crew entry door after it failed to open normally and with the emergency handle. The crew wasn't aware that the plane was still slightly pressurized. Nickerson caught his foot in the lower ladder portion of the door and wasn't holding on to the flight deck ladder hand rails. The door blew out, pitching him onto the ramp. He cracked his head open and died a few days later. I was told this from my first supervisor who was an initial cadre crew chief that started with the C-5s when they were first at Charleston. He knew Nickerson.

I was assigned as crew chief to 67-170 at Dover after rotating from Incirlik, Turkey. I have always wondered where she wound up. The ghost and I had a few run-ins during my tour at Dover, but he always worked things out so as not to strand me for too long a period. Not all things were his fault, she had a her share of electrical and fuel issues, but overall she was a good aircraft.

I flew 67-0170 out Dover AFB 9th MAS, as Loadmaster for the first time in 1983. Having heard about the stories about the crew chief that was killed while attempting to open the crew door. After about 1 hour of preflight and loading her up for a Ramstein run, not a single spooky event happen. I had a total of 5 missions on 67-0170, never once had aproblem
