Final Mission of CAPT Richard K. Allee

CAPT Richard K. Allee was a U.S. Air Force pilot assigned to the 354th Tactical Fighter Squadron. For five years beginning in 1965, the 354th flew combat missions in Southeast Asia from the Takhli Royal Thai Air Force Base in Thailand. On December 21, 1968, CAPT Allee was the pilot of the number two F-105D (#6100089) in a flight of four on an escort mission over Laos. After completing their primary mission, the flight asked for a Forward Air Controller (FAC) so they could expend the ordinance they carried. Nail 62 (FAC) was placed in control of the flight and found them a target in the vicinity of Na Phao, twelve miles southwest of the Mu Gia Pass. The FAC marked the target with smoke, and the flight leader was cleared to attack with number two (Allee) to follow in trail. As Allee started his dive, other flight members saw his jet burst into flames at about 6000 feet. They observed disintegrating aircraft fall until impact but did not see a parachute or any attempt to eject. Allee managed to release bombs prior to crashing two hundred yards beyond the target. No beeper or voice signals were received after impact. An electronic search was conducted until darkness with negative results. Allee was listed as Missing in Action. On October 28, 1994, a Joint Team investigated the crash site where they recovered aircraft wreckage consistent with a F-105 Thunderchief series jet. A portion of Allee’s parachute was recovered indicating he was in the Thunderchief at the time of impact. Allee was promoted to Colonel during the time he was missing.
