Lieutenant (junior grade) Charles B. Pfaffmann (pilot), Lieutenant Larry C. Knight (co-pilot), and aircrewmen Seamen Brian L. Bushnell and Andrew A. Horchar, Jr, all members of Carrier Airborne Early Warning Squadron 116 (VAW-116) embarked in USS CORAL SEA, launched on a routine mission on April 9, 1970.
Immediately after launch, the aircraft crew reported a fire and their intention to return to the ship. LTJG Pfaffmann's aircraft impacted the water about three miles ahead of the CORAL SEA. A rescue helicopter and escort destroyer were on the scene within minutes. No survivors were seen, and no remains were recovered.
