Photo of F-4C Rose's Gang

Can anybody here help with tracking down a photo (assuming one exists) of Rose's Gang, an F-4C (63-7671) assigned to the 557 TFS, 12 TFW at Cam Ranh Bay AB, South Vietnam in early 1970? Particularly, a photo of the aircraft with its two crewmen: Capt. Thomas Daffron (pilot) and 1Lt Charles Morley (WSO). They were shot down and killed over Laos on 18 Feb. 1970 during a night mission against the Ho Chi Minh Trail. (Daffron and Morley were MIA until their remains were found in the early 1990s and positively IDed.) I am doing a story about Morley and his aircraft for the Missouri Aviation Historical Society's newsletter Middle Marker. If such a photo exists, I would like to get it by 5 Nov. for this article. Thank you in advance.
