On October 26, 1967, John McCain, as part of a group of twenty aircraft, flew on his twenty-third combat mission, this time the Americans were supposed to destroy a thermal power plant located in the center of Hanoi. Approaching the city, the American pilots encountered heavy anti-aircraft fire, first one of the attack aircraft was shot down, then one of the escort fighters. While approaching the target, McCain saw that he was being tracked by enemy radars. The pilot descended from a height of three thousand meters to about a thousand, dropped bombs, but as soon as he began to gain altitude, the wing of his aircraft was demolished by an anti-aircraft missile. The damaged Skyhawk fell into a tailspin, McCain ejected from the falling plane, while receiving several serious injuries (fractures of the right arm in three places, left arm and right leg) and lost consciousness.
McCain’s plane was shot down by a Soviet S-75 anti-aircraft missile system (according to Western classification – SA-2). These missiles were massively supplied by the Soviet Union to Vietnam and were actively used against American aircraft. The Vietnamese Army’s 61st Missile Battalion, armed with S-75 missiles, was camouflaged in a grove of trees twenty kilometers south of Hanoi. Its commander, Captain Nguyen Lan, was trained by the Soviet military back in 1965 and by that time had already shot down several American aircraft. On that day, he had already used two of the five available missiles, but both missed. “We were forbidden to fire our missiles in the direction of the city, except in emergencies,” said Nguyen Lan, “We received an order to shoot down an enemy plane at the moment when it was about to attack the power plant.” From a distance of almost twenty kilometers, a rocket was fired at McCain’s plane, hitting the target a few seconds later.
In 2008, when John McCain was a candidate for the presidency of the United States, information appeared in the Russian media that the missile that shot down his plane was fired not by a Vietnamese, but by a Soviet officer, Captain Yuri Trushechkin. However, later it turned out that in Trushechkin’s interview there were too many factual inconsistencies that did not allow him to be treated with confidence.
McCain landed in the water of Truk Baha Lake, located in the central part of the Vietnamese capital. He regained consciousness, but due to fractures he could not use his hands, and heavy ammunition pulled him to the bottom. Twice he went completely underwater, touching the bottom of a shallow lake before he could inflate his life jacket with his teeth. Several Vietnamese who saw him fall into the water pulled him ashore. They tore off McCain’s uniform and beat him, smashing his shoulder with a rifle butt and piercing his left leg and groin with a bayonet. After that, he was brought to the police station, where the American was examined by a nurse. Later, she recalled how at first she decided that the American was dead, he was so pale and motionless. Feeling for a pulse, she bandaged the pilot and gave him some sugar and alcohol.
McCain was transported by truck to Hanoi’s Hoalo Prison, known to American POWs as the “Hanoi Hilton”. McCain recalled that for four or five days he was not given any medical attention until the Vietnamese realized that his father held a high position in the US military. In fact, it is certain that the Hanoi authorities realized the propaganda importance of this young man much earlier, since within a few hours after McCain’s capture, it was told on the radio. The Americans did not make a secret of this fact, and the very next day, October 27, news agencies reported that the son of Admiral John McCain, Jr., commander of American troops in Asia, was shot down over Hanoi and captured.
