McLean Stevenson

McLean Stevenson
Best known as "Lt. Colonel Henry Blake", commander of the 4077 M*A*S*H unit on the CBS television series (M*A*S*H), from 1972 - 1975. Henry Blake was killed when the plane he was in crashed in the Sea of Japan, on his way back home. One of the saddest moments in the entire series.

Oddly enough, the very next night on CBS' "The Carol Burnett Show", the opening shot was of Henry Blake in a smoking raft, waving his arms, hollering, "I'm OK! I'm OK!" (Found on Wikipedia)
