** The casualty date is incorrect, it is August 27, 1967, I should know because it just happens to be my birthday. Also Dad was shot down over South China.

Other Personnel in Incident: Capt. Paschal G. Boggs, bombardier/navigator

On 27 August 1967, Major Vlademir H. Bacik, pilot, promoted while MIA to Lieutenant Colonel Bacik and Capt. Paschal G. Boggs, bombardier/navigator comprised the crew of an A6A Intruder that was conducting a pre-dawn radar strike mission over Quang Ninh Province, North Vietnam.

The last radio contact with the Intruder was just before Major Bacik and Capt. Boggs commenced their attack run on the designated target.

When the Intruder's crew failed to reestablish contact with the ABCCC, an electronic search was immediately initiated, but no trace of the aircraft or its crew was found.

Due to the location of loss, no ground search was possible.

Vlademir Bacik and Paschal Boggs were reported as Missing in Action.
