Casualty at Sea

On October 19, 1973, a USN F-4B Phantom II (#152211) from Fighter Squadron 51 (VF-51) “Screaming Eagles” aboard the USS Coral Sea (CV-43) experienced a failed catapult launch. As the aircraft is hurled off to the starboard side of the ship, the pilot in the front seat ejected with a successfully parachute deployment and was recovered. ENS Allan L. Dunning Jr., the radar intercept officer (RIO) in rear seat, also ejected with negative chute deployment and entered the sea still attached to his Martin Baker ejection seat. Search and rescue operations lasted for 8 hours until CAPT Peck called off search without ever recovering the lost RIO. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and ejection-history.org.uk]

Crash landed over South China Sea

According to information on togetherweserved.com Ens. Dunning was killed during hostile action, when his plane crash-landed over the South China Sea. I found him when I was looking for information on his father, CPT Allan Lombard Dunning, Sr., USN, who graduated from the US Naval Academy in 1927. I am greatly saddened to learn that his son was lost in Vietnam. I cannot find a memorial at Find A Grave, for the son, but will post one. I'm pretty sure his body was not recovered, but will try to find out if there is a cenotaph, somewhere.

Thanks again my friend, while the sea keeps you from us - you are never far from our thoughts.

O Spirit, whom the Father sent
To spread abroad the firmament.
Oh wind of heaven, by Thy might
Save all who dare the eagle's flight.
And keep them by thy watchful care
From every peril in the air
