Final Mission of CAPT Robert L. Mann

On October 22, 1965, pilot CAPT Robert L. Mann, sensor system operator 1LT John Weger Jr., and navigator 1LT James A. McEwen comprised the crew of a U.S. Air Force Douglas RB-66 Destroyer (#53-0452) from the 9th Tactical Reconnaissance Squadron (Saigon Detachment) on a night reconnaissance mission. The mission was classified and scheduled to begin and end at Tan Son Nhut Air Base near Saigon. Shortly after a radio transmission, the crew of another nearby aircraft observed a fireball reflection against the clouds to the north of the mission area assigned to CAPT Mann’s aircraft. They attempted radio contact with Mann but received no response. On October 23rd, search and rescue forces located a crash site on a mountain slope 200 feet below a 4600-fot peak. The point of impact was approximately 24 miles southwest of Kon Tum in Kon Tum Province, RVN. On December 4, 1965, a Graves Registration specialist searched the crash site but found no remains. On April 29, 1966, flying safety personnel visited the crash site and recovered a severely damaged parachute harness with embedded human remains. It was their opinion that the occupants of the aircraft did not parachute from the aircraft before the crash. The remains of the three airmen have not been recovered. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org]

24 Years ago...

In 1991, I was an 18 year old Airman Basic at Lackland and I bought Captain Mann's MIA bracelet. I wear it all the time, and today - on POW/MIA Remembrance Day, I am wearing it again. I never knew Captain Mann or his family, I picked his bracelet out because it stood out to me.

May God bless his family and his Grandchildren.
