CAPT VINCENT CALVIN SCOTT JR.

Return to Service Member Profiles


On April 22, 1969, an F-4D Phantom II (tail number 65-0649, call sign "Cobra 21") with two crew members was the lead aircraft on a two-plane combat mission over Laos. The Phantom was observed to make a normal pass over the target; however, a few minutes later, an explosion was witnessed in the vicinity of (GC) XC 951 503, in the direction of the lead aircraft. No further contact could be made with the Phantom, and no parachutes were seen in the area. Search teams could find no sign of the Phantom or its crew.

First Lieutenant Vincent Calvin Scott Jr., who joined the U.S. Air Force from Virginia, was a member of the 480th Tactical Fighter Squadron. He was the pilot of the Phantom when it went missing and he remains unaccounted for. Subsequent to the incident, the U.S. Air Force posthumously promoted First Lieutenant Scott to the rank of Colonel Captain (Capt). Today, Captain Scott is memorialized on the Courts of the Missing at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific.
