Return to Service Member Profiles

On April 16, 1991, the Central Identification Lab-Hawaii (CILHI, now DPAA) identified the remains of Captain Michael Lewis Hyde, missing from the Vietnam War.

Captain Hyde, who joined the U.S. Air Force from Colorado, served with the 510th Tactical Fighter Squadron. On December 8, 1966, he piloted an F-100D Super Sabre (serial number 56-3063) on a strike mission over enemy targets in South Vietnam. During the mission, the Super Sabre was shot down by enemy ground fire and Captain Hyde was killed. Efforts to locate the crash site and recover his remains following the crash were unsuccessful. In 1990, the Vietnamese government repatriated remains to the U.S. which were later identified as those of Capt Hyde.

Captain Hyde is memorialized on the Courts of the Missing at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific.
