Final Mission of MAJ Jack G. Farr

On July 27, 1965, two U.S. Air Force Republic F-105D Thunderchiefs from the 357th Tactical Fighter Squadron collided in mid-air and crashed near Udorn Royal Thai Air Force Base in northeastern Thailand. Both pilots were killed in the incident. The lost crewmen included CAPT William J. Barthelmas Jr. and MAJ Jack G. Farr. The flight was returning from a strike mission against missile sites thirty miles west of Hanoi in North Vietnam. The crash occurred when Barthelmas’ number two aircraft (#61-0177), hit by groundfire in the nose area, became uncontrollable and suddenly pitched up and into Farr’s jet (#62-4298) as he was pulling alongside to inspect the damage. Both planes were observed to go down. The Air Force reportedly listed the crash as an “operational loss” to avoid the public linking of Thailand with Operation Rolling Thunder, an aerial bombardment campaign conducted by the United States against North Vietnam.
