  • Son brings Vietnam War fighter pilot's lost remains home to Texas

On Thursday, Captain Bryan Knight was transporting the remains of his father, Air Force Col. Roy Abner Knight Jr., whose plane had been shot down on May 19, 1967, while attacking a target on the Ho Chi Minh Trail in Laos, according to an obituary. When he left from this very airport to fight in Vietnam, his 5-year-old came to the airfield and waved goodbye.

That was the last time he saw his father. His son Bryan, who flew his father home on Thursday, was born in France during this period, while his father was stationed in Toul-Rosieres.

"When I first got the call, it was nearly surreal because I really didn't think it would ever happen", Knight, an Air Force veteran, said in the video. 8, 2019, the remains of the pilot whose plane was shot down in 1967 during the Vietnam War have been returned to Texas by a commercial jet flown by his son. "And we're going to have a place where we can honor him".

"Knight was leading a flight of two A-1E aircraft on a strike mission in northern Laos when his aircraft was hit by anti-aircraft fire", the Defense POW/MIA website states.

Once the younger Knight learned that his father's remains had been found, he launched the process of repatriating them. He was declared missing, and officially presumed dead in 1974.

Knight said his father was and always will be his hero.

The effort to find Knight and identify his remains started in 1991, and US and Laos investigators found a crash site and life support items three years later. They were flown to Honolulu, Hawaii, where they were transferred to a Southwest flight heading to Oakland, California.
