 Additional Information
Last Known Activity
"Col. Wallace G. Hynds was the pilot and Capt. Carey A. Cunningham the radar navigator of an RF4C reconnaissance version of the Phantom fighter/bomber. The two were assigned to the 10th Tactical Reconnaissance Squadron.

On August 2, 1967, Hynds and Cunningham were flying the lead plane in a flight of two aircraft on a reconnaissance mission near the city of Vinh in North Vietnam. The number two aircraft observed Hynds' aircraft to crash to the ground and explode. No parachutes were seen, and no emergency beeper signals were heard. Based on their visual observation, the two men were declared killed."
