Last Known Activity
Then Major Hartney and his EWO, Captain Samuel Fantle, were on a mission to attack the Dong Luc railroad bridge in North Vietnam were shot down by a MiG-17. They were seen to eject with good parachutes, land safely from their F-105F (#63-8356), but it was impossible due to combat situation at the time to rescue them. They were listed as POW/MIA, then KIA.

Finally, their remains were found and returned.

He may very likely have been taken POW and killed thereafter.
