Last Known Activity
Earlier in his career, Major Fearno flew the B-47.  At the time of his death, he was flying as an FAC with the 21st TASS out of Nha Trang.  He flew an O-1E (S/N 56-2617) on a Visual Reconnaissance mission over Lam Dong Province South Vietnam when his engine failed. His forced landing resulted in a crash he did not survive but his unknown crewmember did survive. 

He was buried in Coolidge Cemetery,  Coolidge, Hamilton County, Kansas.
