Capt. William Stroven was the pilot and Capt. Kenneth Stonebraker the navigator aboard an RF4C Phantom jet assigned a photo-reconnaissance
mission over North Vietnam on October 28, 1968. The aircraft departed its base at Udorn Airfield, Thailand for its target, which included an ammunition supply dump near Hanoi.
As the aircraft was over Quang Binh Province, North Vietnam, it was lost from radar. No trace was ever found of the aircraft of its crew. The last known location was over 200 miles from the intended target, and about 15 miles west of the city of Dong Hoi.
Stroven and Stonebraker were declared Missing in Action, and public record reveals very little more about their fates. The U.S. Government determined that there is a good chance that the Vietnamese know the fate of Stroven,
but are uncertain whether Stonebraker's fate is known.
