Final Mission of LCDR John F. Barr

On October 18, 1967, LCDR John F. Barr was the pilot of a U.S. Navy Douglas A-4E Skyhawk (# 152048) attack aircraft from Attack Squadron 164 (VA-164) aboard the USS Oriskany (CV-34). LCDR Barr was the leader in a flight of two on a strike mission over Haiphong Province, North Vietnam. While over the the target area, Barr’s aircraft rolled in on a steep dive on a surface-to-air missile site. The wingman followed, saw heavy flak, and immediately turned right to avoid it. After turning right, he saw a large orange fireball with billowing smoke in the target area where Barr’s Skyhawk had impacted the ground. No beeper signal was heard, and no parachute was sighted. A visual and electronic search was conducted without success. Search efforts were terminated because it was believed that there was no chance of survival. Barr was carried in the presumptive status of dead, body not recovered. On September 11, 1989, remains believed to be Barr’s were returned to the United States. They were positively identified August 28, 1995. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and “A4E Crash Report of LCDR John F. Barr” at ttu.edu]
