  2 Feb 1966: Early in the evening Backwash 100, an F-4B Phantom II, (BuNo 152285), LT William H. Brinks and LT Edward E. Weller of VF-74, launched for a routine night intercept training mission while Forrestal steamed in the Tyrrhenian Sea, at 1802. As 100 climbed through 1,500 feet with both engines at full thrust, a “loud explosion” shook the aircraft. The Phantom II immediately began to decelerate, though it finished its climb to 2,200 feet before descending inexorably back to earth. Both men checked their instruments, however, they could not regain control of the F-4B and they ejected, approximately three miles from the ship. A UH-2A crew from HC-2 Detachment 59, LT(JG) Howe, LT Louis R. Grant, AME3 Gary Steele and ATN3 Bill Toth, spotted the survivors within four minutes, thanks largely to the flares and strobe lights which the aircrew deployed fortuitously, and rescued the pilot and radar intercept officer and returned the shaken men to the ship.

          Lt(jg) James Thomas Ruffin (KIA)

          Lt(jg) Larry Howard Spencer (POW)

Towards the middle of February US raids began to reach further north as part of Washington's tactics of gradually increasing the pressure on North Vietnam. On 18 February a section of Phan­toms from VF ‑92 flew escort for an EC‑121 Big Look aircraft of VQ‑1 on a surveillance mission just off the coast near Thanh Hoa. At 25,000 feet and the relatively slow speed of 280 knots one of the Phantoms was rocked by a massive explosion. Lt Spencer, the NFO, believed it was an SA‑2 as no AAA or MiGs were reported. The aircraft immediately pitched over into a steep dive towards the North Vietnamese coast and, following standard operating procedure, Lt Spencer ejected first followed by his pilot. Two parachutes were seen but only Larry Spencer entered the North Vietnamese POW system. Lt Ruffin probably died at the time and may have been killed by the North Vietnamese or he may have drowned when he came down in the sea. Whatever the cause, his remains were handed over on 3 June 1983 while Lt Spencer had been released from seven years of captivity on 12 February 1973.

F‑4C 63‑7677 433 TFS, 8 TFW, USAF, Ubon

Maj Samuel Robert Johnson (POW) 1 Lt Larry James Chesley (POW)

A Phantom was hit by automatic weapons fire during an armed reconnaissance mission near Ha Loi, 35 miles north of the DMZ. Both crew ejected and were captured. Maj Johnson was on his 25th mission and Lt Chesley on his 76th. During the ejection Maj Johnson suffered a broken back, broken arm and a dislocated shoulder. Later Lt Chesley contracted beri beri, which debilitated him throughout his years of captivity. Both men were released from captivity on 12 February 1973.

Samuel Johnson had flown 62 combat missions in the F‑86 during the Korean War and flew tours with the Air Force Fighter Weapons School and the Thunderbirds display team after his release from Vietnam. Highly decorated, Samuel Johnson retired from the USAF as a Colonel in 1979 and became active in poli­tics, culminating in his being elected Congressman for Dallas, Texas in May 1991. Johnson became prominent in his criticism of the Smithsonian Institution's exhibition at the National Air and Space Museum of `Enola Gay' and its atomic mission. He was later appointed to the Smithsonian's Board of Regents. He wrote a book titled Captive Warriors about his POW experience in Vietnam. Larry Chesley also wrote a book about his experi­ences, titled Seven Years in Hanoi, which was published in 1973.

 

  On 16 April the 8 TFW lost F-4C 63-7677 (634 hours), call sign Hedgehog, during an 1800-hours dusk ROLLING THUNDER 50 Armed Reconnaissance mission against weapon sites over RP-I, North Vietnam. During the dive on the target (17°-35’N/106°-17’E) they were hit by moderate automatic weapon fire which resulted in a fire. MAJ Sam R. Johnson and 1LT L.J. Chesley ejected at 17°-37’N/106°-19’E and sat out the rest of the war as POWs. MAJ Johnson was to become one of the infamous ‘Alcatraz 11’, who were singled out for special harsh treatment because of their uncommon resistance. He was among the 135 inmates released from the Hoa Lo prison on 12 February 1973.

Joe was recognized for 'Outstanding Airmanship' while in the Air Force. When he experienced vibration in the cockpit of a fighter interceptor he was flying over Needles, AZ, Joe reduced his speed. Although reducing speed reduced the vibration, it also causes such an aircraft to lose altitude. Descending from 33,000 feet, the terrain was coming up fast. However with skillful flying and navigation, Joe was able to land his aircraft safely.

FEEDBACK

My Dad is listed on your website but I wanted to point out an error in his middle initital. It’s actually Marvin C (not G) Mayfield. He was shot down (and rescued) on 26th July 1966.  I've attached a photo you are welcome to crop and include on your website if you would like. Also, there is more information on my dads rescue here:

  From WynnePA@IMC7.EMS.LMCO.COM Mon Sep 22, 1997
I am interested in anyone who might have known Patrick E. Wynne from the 555th TFS. He was initially listed MIA August 8, 1966 and subsequently listed KIA on that date after many years. I am his younger brother and was 10 years old when Pat went down. I am looking for any background, photos, etc. that you might be interested in sharing with me. I am particularly interested in the tail number, markings, and co-pilot of the F-4 C he was flying when he went down. Thank you for a great web page.

To update your info.
You have the wrong dates for Maj (then Lt.) Bernard L. Talley.  He and then Capt. Doug Peterson were shot down over North Vietnam in September, not 10 Oct.  I know because Bill Andrews were supposed to be on that mission but Doug and Bernard wanted to go since they had just gotten back from R&R.  You do not have Doug Peterson listed anywhere in September.

To update your info.  You have the right date October 4 1966 for my ejection.  I was with Capt. William Andrews.  Bill was killed by ground troops after we were on the ground for several hours.  I was rescued by Jolly Greens at around noon.  Bill's remains were returned to the U.S. in 1974 or 1975.

To My Dad, "Mac" McBride
I was only 12 when my father left my life. We tried for years to find him and after 34 years we finally found his co-pilot who was also searching for us. After all these years, this kind man put to rest our fears that our father was captured or died in pain. Bless him, for he has now put peace in our hearts and we can put our father to rest (even tho the Navy says he is missing in action). Bless all those who served our country and gave up the ultimate, their lives. They are not gone as long as we remember them.
