Return to Service Member Profiles


On August 25, 1967, an RA-3B Skywarrior (bureau number 144835, call sign “Quizshow 09”) with three crew members carried out a night reconnaissance mission over the Gulf of Tonkin off the coast of North Vietnam. As the aircraft approached the coastline, radar contact was lost, and could not be reestablished. A search for “Quizshow 09” discovered no sign of it or its crew. All three members of the crew remain unaccounted for.

Aviation Machinist’s Mate (Jet Engine Mechanic) Second Class Ronald Alan Bois Claire, who joined the U.S. Navy from Arizona, was a member of Heavy Photographic Squadron 62. He was a crew member aboard “Quizshow 09” when it went missing, and he was lost with the aircraft. He remains unaccounted for. Today, Petty Officer Bois Claire is memorialized on the Courts of the Missing at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific.

Based on all information available, DPAA assessed the individual's case to be in the analytical category of Non-recoverable.
