Thanks Mark. I found some additional info:

RA-5C BuN0 151620 destroyed in crash near NAS Albany March 5 1973.

From Naval History and Heritage Command website:
"19 May 1967: Linfield 204, an F-4B (BuNo 153004), LT(JG) Joseph C. Plumb, and LT(JG) Gareth L. Anderson, VF-114, was shot down by one of “numerous” SAMs fired at attacking aircraft, despite “violent jinking” [evasive maneuvering], while on a strike against the Van Dien SAM Support Depot, North Vietnam, 20º48’N, 105º44’E. Both men were taken by the enemy, enduring captivity until returning to the U.S., on 18 February and 4 April 1973, respectively."
