Lt. Miroslav Zilberman, 31, of Columbus, Ohio, Naval Officer/Husband/Father, remained on that aircraft so that the others could survive. The pilot determined the autopilot could not maintain safe level flight for all to egress so he elected to stay so the other would have a chance. His widow was presented with Zilberman's Distinguished Flying Cross at the conclusion of his memorial at NAS Norfolk.
