 Additional Information
Last Known Activity
1st Lt. Gary Alven Glandon  was an F-4C pilot who served with the 391st Tactical Fighter Squadron.

On 26 May, 1966, Lt. Terrance H. Griffey, the pilot, and 1Lt. Gary A. Glandon, weapons systems officer, on an F4C Phantom sent on a bombing mission.

The aircraft was number two in a flight of three. After making the bombing run over the target, Griffey's aircraft was observed to burst into flames and explode. The aircraft burned in the air, impacted the ground and disintegrated into small pieces. The location of the crash was on the coast of South Vietnam about 10 miles northeast of the city of Qui Nhon in Binh Dinh Province.

Both men were thought to have been killed and to have gone down with the aircraft.
