 Additional Information
Last Known Activity
Captain Thomas R. Allen was the pilot, and 1st Lt. Ronald L. Packard the weapons/systems operator, in an F4C aircraft which departed Cam Ranh Bay on a route reconnaissance mission on 31 July 1967 over North Vietnam. Allen's aircraft was the lead aircraft in a flight of two. He rolled in to attack a target and the crew of the number two aircraft observed what appeared to be a secondary explosion on the ground.

Radio contact with Allen was unsuccessful. No parachutes were seen and no emergency radio beepers were heard. The flight was near the railroad tracks about 5 miles from the coast of Vietnam, 15 miles north of the city of Vinh Linh in Quang Binh Province.

Allen and Packard were declared Missing in Action.

On 3 November 1997, the remains of Captain Allen and 1st Lt. Packard were found and identified.
