You were my buddy in grade school.
I'm looking at a picture of you in the eighth grade...
A Note from The Virtual WallOn 19 Dec 1972 an OV-10A from the 20th TASS was hit by an SA-7 handheld antiaircraft missile while conducting a FAC mission near Quang Tri City. Although the pilot, Captain Francis X. Egan, was killed the observer survived the crash, evaded capture, and was eventually rescued. Captain Egan's body was later recovered by a ground team.
