BILLINGS, Mont. — Tom Wilber began an improbable journey by asking one question: What happened to Bernie Rupinski?

The radar intercept officer in the backseat of his father's F-4 jet had never been found after the plane was likely hit by hostile MiG aircraft missiles over Vietnam in 1968. Wilber's father's ejection seat and parachute had fired at the last second, and he survived, even though as a prisoner of war for nearly five years in North Vietnam.
