Narrative:
OV-10A 67-14638 of 23 TASS, 504 TASG, USAF, based at Nakhon Phanom (but detached to Ubon RTAB) was shot down by ground fire 20 miles north-east of the town of Kratie in Cambodia.

Pilot: Maj Harold Benton Lineberger (KIA). Lineberger had been lost at 06:43 hours when he reported his position as being 27 miles WSW of Stung Treng and 51 miles NNW of Sambor, Cambodia.(At approximate co ordinates: 12'41.41"N, 10'60.117"E). He never returned from the mission.

Search efforts were conducted in the area for the next several days, but no trace of Lineberger's plane was found. On March 25, 1971, a Khmer Rouge rallier reported during interrogation that he had observed an OV-10 near Kratie during the time Lineberger disappeared. The rallier had gone to the crash site with a friend and had been told by villagers that the aircraft flew over in a wavering pattern, went into a dive, crashed and exploded. The source had seen two badly burned bodies in the cockpit one very large in the front, and one small and skinny in the rear seat. The bodies were removed from the aircraft and buried.

The Air Force determined that the source had not correctly identified what was in the back seat and mistakenly believed it was a body. They correlated this report to Major Lineberger, who had, unusually, flown alone on this mission.

Narrative:
67-14648 (504th TASG, 23rd TASS) hit by ground fire while controlling an air strike S of Ban Karai Pass, Laos on December 26th, 1971. Pilot - Capt Lynn E Guenther - ejected sustaining injuries (and became a POW). According to Captain Guenther himself:

"On December 26, 1971, after flying about three months over Laos, I was shot down by Anti Aircraft Artillery. I sustained two injuries - one to my left eye and the other to my left shoulder. While in captivity I underwent two operations, one for each injury."
After spending 414 days in captivity, Capt Guenther was released during Operation Homecoming on February 12, 1973. He was briefly hospitalized to recover from his injuries at Travis AFB, California

His Distinguished Flying Cross Citation reads:
"Captain Lynn E. Guenther distinguished himself by extraordinary achievement while participating in aerial flight as a Forward Air Controller in Southeast Asia on 24 December 1971. On that date, Captain Guenther demonstrated courage and rare determination while directing air strikes against a truck convoy deep in hostile territory. Despite marginal weather, lingering darkness, and an intense barrage of antiaircraft fire, Captain Guenther skillfully controlled six flights of fighter aircraft, resulting in the total destruction of a seven truck convoy. The professional competence, aerial skill, and devotion to duty displayed by Captain Guenther reflect great credit upon himself and the United States Air Force."
