					Failed to return from a mission to the I.G. Farben chemical and synthetic oil works 
					at Leuna, Merseburg, Germany 13Sep44. Coming off the target and struck by flak, 
					the right inboard engine failed so that the propeller had to be feathered, and the 
					plane began to lose altitude. The plane was struck again and lost the left outer 
					engine so now the plane dropped out of formation. The pilot put out a call 
					and shortly after, two P-51 Mustang's answered. They escorted the bomber 
					to an airfield that had been used as a German fighter base. Two propellers 
					were feathered, the hydraulic system was shot up, and couldn't get the landing 
					gear down. As the plane was letting down for the approach, it ran into a 
					temperature inversion that iced up the cockpit windows so now the pilot 
					couldn't see the airfield. He called the bombardier to guide him in. Shortly 
					after that the pilot was able to get his window open in order to stick his head
					out and at that point was able to see part of the runway. So between the pilot 
					and the bombardier they brought the plane in for a crash landing. The propellers
					were all bent up, the ball turret was a wreck and the plane was full of holes
					but no-one was injured. Struck by flak, the navigator was killed instantly when 
					shrapnel hit near his heart. Incident after a mission to the railway marshalling 
					yards at Frankfurt am Main, Germany 5Nov44. Diverted by bad weather, landed at 
					RAF Stradishall, Suffolk. When starting engines to return to Thurleigh, there was 
					an electrical failure in the bomb bay which started a fire. Damaged landing 		
					with the tail wheel retracted at Thurleigh 2Jan45. Battle damaged on a mission 
					to the railway bridge at Hohenzollern, Cologne, Germany 14Jan45. Flak struck 
					the left wing causing a large hole. Battle damaged on a mission to oil targets 
					in Germany 6Feb45. The expected clear weather did not materialize so the 
					Group hit the secondary target, the industrial area at Giessen, Germany. 
					Flak over Frankfurt was intense and accurate. The No.1 engine failed, the propeller
					could not be feathered and the plane dropped out of formation after the target. 
					The No.4 turbosupercharger failed then the No.1 propeller came off and struck

					Crashed when the crew bailed out after a mid-air collision with Bell P-63A Kingcobra 43-69442 
					ten miles southwest of Hernando, MS 13Oct44 (3KIS). A formation of B-17 bombers from Dyersburg 
					linked up with some others out of Louisiana around Greenville, MS and started to initiate a bomb run 
					on the Mississippi River Bridge in Memphis, TN. About fifty strong, they were at 16,000 to 18,000ft at forty 
					miles south of Memphis when they were jumped by eight P-63s. P-63 #69442 was coming up from 
					underneath the lead group and attempted to pull up in front of the lead aircraft. 
					The pilot misjudged the speed and distance and when he realized that he had no elevator control, he 
					attempted to roll the fighter out of the way. He impacted the nose of the B-17, which sheared off the fighter's right 
					wing and the tail section. The P-63 pilot managed to bail out and survive. The B-17 crashed after suffering major 
					damage to the nose and the no.4 engine caught fire. Eight of the crew bailed out and survived, but three men 
					in the nose were killed in the collision. Debris hit another Fortress, which landed in Memphis with no casualties.

					south of Leipzig, Germany 30Nov44. Flak at the target was moderate to intense and accurate for both 
					height and deflection. The aircraft was damaged with a small hole underside right wing inner panel, 
					skin corrugation and fuel vent line damaged; Flak hole through fuselage forward of waist windows, skin, 
					stringer and heated suit receptacle damaged. 
					Failed to return from a mission to the Ruhrchemie AG synthetic oil works at Holten, Sterkrade, 
					Germany 22Jan45 (1KIA:8POW). The leader of the squadron was unable to drop his bombs on 
					this primary target so flew to the secondary target, the railway marshalling yards at Rheine. 
					A lot of radar-controlled flak was installed in the vicinity of Sterkrade which struck the aircraft, 
					causing no.3 engine to fail. The bombs were dropped to make the plane lighter. Immediately after 
					passing Rheine it remained behind in the formation and turned to the left while climbing. However, 
					no visible damage was reported by other aircraft in the formation. Because the propeller could not 
					be put in the feathering position, this strongly slowed down the plane which broke away from the 
					formation. In addition, the plane slowly descended, now on a south-western course. In the 
					vicinity of Aachen, no.4 engine was hit by anti-aircraft fire. It was clear that home base in England 
					could no longer be reached. It was the pilot's intention to fly so long that the bomber would pass over the 
					front line and then allow his crew to bail out from a safe height. After everyone had left the aircraft, 
					he closed the throttle after which the plane spun and fell to the ground while spinning and crashed on 
					a snow covered pasture east of the Veerstraat north of Boxmeer on the banks of the river Maas, Netherlands. 
					This sector of the Maas was the allied front line and was occupied on the west side by B-Squadron of the 
					Canadian 8th Recce Regiment. The crew members, with the exception of the co-pilot and flight engineer, 
					landed on the eastern bank of the Maas in the vicinity of Afferden; they were soon taken prisoner of war. 
					The co-pilot and flight engineer landed close together on the west side of the Maas but were unlucky 
					enough to be captured by a German patrol which had crossed over to the Allied side in a dinghy. 
					The Canadians of the 8th Recce Regiment sent a four-man patrol to the wreckage of the Fortress. 
					The Canadian patrol then received rifle and machine gun fire from the German side and fire from 
					a light mortar, trapping it between the dike and the river. Support fire was requested from the Canadian side 
					and received from a platoon of the Toronto Scottish Regiment allowing one man to retreat. 
					The three others were wounded and left behind. A new patrol was then sent out which failed to find the three injured. 
					They had been captured by the Germans and taken away across the Maas. {55 missions}.   MACR 12011

					Battle damaged on a mission to an oil refinery at Hamburg, Germany 31Dec44 (3WIA:6RMC). 
					Flak was encountered at several locations en route and on the return home; flak around Hamburg
					was intense and accurate. Prior to the target, fighter attacks created havoc for five minutes or more as 
					the tight formation of bombers became scattered. Struck by flak after the target, the co-pilot, navigator 
					and togglier were wounded. There was a hole about 5 x 3 about three inches away from the ball turret. 
					The ball was stuck and the gunner couldnt get out. There were holes right by the right waist position. 
					After leaving some of the heavy flak, enemy fighters came down and attacked the bombers that were out of formation. 
					When the plane was safe from flak but not fighters, the crew got to work getting the gunner out of the ball, which they did eventually. 
					Then the pilot reported they were low on fuel, so the crew went to work emptying the plane as they went over the North Sea. 
					With land in sight, the plane came in for a landing from 7,000ft. As it touched down on the runway 
					two engines failed with fuel exhaustion. 
					Battle damaged on an Operation Thunderclap mission to railway marshalling yards at Tempelhof, Berlin, Germany 3Feb45. 
					Flak over the target was intense and accurate. The hydraulic system had been damaged and, without brakes,

					Accident on return from a Crossbow mission to a German V-weapon site at Zudauasques, 
					Pas-de-Calais, France 19Jun44 (1MIA:7KIA:1RMC). The bomber had been badly damaged by flak. 
					For the pilot of the aircraft, this was his first combat mission, and he was already in trouble. 
					The formation was returning from a combat mission and had reached the English coast in formation, 
					flying through a haze between 18,000 and 21,000ft. Flying close to his section leader, the pilot was 
					having a great deal of difficulty controlling the bomber, but they were now only about fifteen minutes 
					from base and he was determined to make it. The plane had already lost one of the engines; now, 
					as the formation neared the Thames estuary, another engine was giving up. Already wrestling with the 
					bomber's flak damaged controls, it was the last thing the pilot needed. Jockeying the throttles on the 
					remaining engines, he was trying to somehow compensate for the drop in power when, without warning, 
					the plane side-slipped to starboard and collided with the aircraft of his section leader, B-17G 42-97942, 
					hitting the plane just behind the pilots compartment near the top turret. As the two planes separated, 
					this aircraft turned upside down, lost its port wing and went straight down into the muddy waters of 
					the Thames estuary. Only one of the nine crew members survived. The plane crashed about 500 yards 
					off the seafront at Allhallows-On-Sea, Kent. The Thameside Aviation museum at Coalhouse Fort, just up 
					river from Canvey Island, houses a large display dedicated to the memory of the B-17's; 
					this display is shared with the Bay Museum on Canvey Island.

					{first combat mission 13Jul44}. Battle damaged on a mission to the oil refinery at 
					Moravsk Ostrava a P?voz, Czechoslovakia 29Aug44 (1WIA:9RMC). 
					During a major attack by enemy fighters, the tail gunner was wounded by 20mm gunfire. 
					Temporarily modified with decking in the bomb bay to evacuate prisoners of war from
					Popesti, Bucharest, Rumania to Bari, Italy during Operation Reunion 31Aug/3Sep44. 
					Battle damaged on a mission to the south ordnance depot in Vienna, Austria 1Nov44 (1EVD:9RMC). 
					While over the primary target, the oil cooler of no.4 engine received a flak hit which caused it to lose oil. 
					The engine then froze and eventually the propeller fell off. The pilot instructed the navigator 
					and bombardier to leave the nose compartment and ordered the rest of the crew to prepare, if necessary, 
					to abandon the aircraft. The bombardier and navigator went to the flight deck, 
					the bombardier under the top turret, the navigator behind the co-pilots seat. 
					As the propeller seemed about to fly off, and was pointing toward the fuselage at an angle of about 20 degrees, 
					the pilot and co-pilot decided to leave their seats and stand on the flight deck within reach of the control column. 
					This necessitated the navigator and bombardier to move further to the rear of the aircraft several times. 
					When the bombardier saw the navigators gestures and the pilot and co-pilot leave their seats, 
					he went to the waist section, but was not in communication with the pilot. 
					The propeller flew off several minutes after the bombardier left the flight deck. 
					The crew members returned to their positions and the bombardier did not. On checking with the gunners 
					in the waist, it was learned that the bombardier had bailed out. No orders were given to abandon, 
					only to put on parachutes and be ready. The bombardier bailed out at around 26,000ft because 
					of lack of oxygen. He was unconscious for a period of 24 days and knew nothing from the time 
					he had lost oxygen until he came to in hospital. The bombardier was over Yugoslavia at the time 
					he bailed out and was eventually returned to allied control. 
					Failed to return from a mission to railway marshalling yards at Vienna, Austria 21Feb45 (1KIA:9POW). 
					Damaged by flak over the target with a propeller feathered. The plane was last seen in a turn and 
					losing altitude as it headed towards Russian lines. The crew bailed out and the plane crashed
					near Ppa, Hungary. {62 missions}..

					Named "Sky Wolf II".
					Failed to return from a mission to the oil refinery at Lobau, Vienna, Austria 21Jan45 (10EVD). 
					Upon arriving at the I.P. the lead plane was unable to drop its bombs. 
					Under heavy and intense but inaccurate flak, the formation circled for a second run. 
					The lead plane successfully dropped its bombs this time. Sky Wolf IIs bombardier hit the toggle 
					switch but the bombs failed to release, they were frozen to their racks. 
					The bombardier and one of the waist gunners entered the bomb bay and began kicking the frozen 
					bombs to free them. Luckily they succeeded in breaking the ice free and the bombs fell. Just then the 
					number two engine began to smoke and oil leaked forth from the failing engine. 
					The pilot hit the feather button but it only slowed the propeller and caused the plane to vibrate. 
					At the same time the number one propeller began to overspeed. 
					The pilot pulled the throttle back but did not feather the propeller, hoping it would be of partial use later; 
					he immediately headed for an airfield in Russian-held territory in Hungary. 
					To make matters even worse, the number four engine was running short of fuel and attempts to transfer 
					fuel were useless because the fuel transfer valves were frozen. 
					With two failed engines, and a third about to stop running, finding a landing spot was crucial. 
					Luckily, a stretch of level ground lay ahead. The pilot made a crash landing and, after covering 350 yards, 
					the plane skidded to a stop in eighteen inches of snow with only slight damage to propellers and flaps. 
					Crash landed at Kiskunmajsa, southern Hungary MACR 11539.  Crew of 10 returned.

					Flak was heavy and accurate, resulting in injury to the bombardier. 
					The airplane was so badly damaged that it could not keep up with the Group. While straggling ten miles 
					behind the formation, it was attacked by two Bf 109s near the Yugoslav border. 
					The two enemy planes attacked as a team, lining up 800 yards out and coming in to within 300 yards. 
					They made four such attacks, then made one attack closing to 100 yards, before turning away having done 
					little additional damage. The pilot made an emergency landing at Foggia to seek medical assistance.

					mission to Vienna, Austria 23Aug44 (10EVD:1RTD). Flak near the I.P. had cut 
					the No.1 propeller governer cables and the propeller was windmilling. 
					The oil pressure dropped to zero preventing the propeller to be feathered. No.4 
					engine was then struck by flak and the propeller feathered. No.3 engine ran hot 
					and caught fire. Two flak shells burst either side of the radio room. An 88mm flak 
					shell had gone through the horizontal and vertical stabilisers on the left side but 
					did not explode. Oxygen lines had been fractured and the pilot dropped down to 
					12,500 feet. The pilot continued on the bomb run and the combat photographer 
					took his pictures. The pilot turned and headed for Yugoslavia; if the plane coiuld fly 
					another sixty miles the crew would likely be over Tito�s partisans. The windmilling 
					propeller was causing vibrations and in danger of coming loose. Down to just above 
					stalling speed, the vibrations disturbed the airflow and the bomber stalled, 
					went into a spin and fell. By this time the crew had bailed out between Dubica and 
					Kozara, Bosnia, southeast of Zagreb, Croatia, Yugoslavia. The pilot was about to bail 
					out from the navigator�s escape hatch when the propeller fell off. Returning to the 
					cockpit, flying from the co-pilot�s side, he managed to regain control of the airplane and 
					regain some altitude with the power from one and a half engines. The pilot managed 
					to find a valley which just allowed the bomber to clear the top and set course along the 
					Adriatic back to Italy. The No. 1 engine propeller and the front of the engine had been 
					torn off; the No.4 propeller was feathered; the No.3 engine had been on fire but was 
					now only smoking. The tires were shot up and the ball turret guns were facing down, 
					digging into the steel mat runway and stopping the plane quickly. The crew chief 
					counted 424 holes in the bomber. The plane was rebuilt but wouldn�t fly properly on 
					combat missions. {42 missions}. Declared �war weary�. Reassigned for utility and 
					as a hack. Assigned to a General for his personal use but still wouldn�t fly properly.

					Failed to return from a mission to the Save railway bridge at Belgrade, Serbia, 
					Yugoslavia 3Sep44 (1WIA:3INJ:6RTD). The plane was over the target when No.3 engine 
					sprung an oil leak and high cylinder pressure. it fell out of formation and the crew 
					was attempting to drop bombs on a secondary target when No.1 engine let loose a 
					stream of black smoke. Both engines were feathered and the bombs jettisoned. 
					Loose equipment was jettisoned to lighten the load, although the ball turret was retained. 
					Air speed decreased to 120 mph and altitude was being lost at 200ft/min. Highest altitude 
					was 27,000ft when the propellers were feathered. When at 11,000ft after an hour�s return, 
					the plane was over the Dalmation Alps and encountered moderate flak, easily aimed 
					at the crippled bomber. The bombardier was severely wounded in the leg, four control 
					cables shot out and there were more than a hundred flak holes. The crew sweated 
					out the readiness for abandoning the plane, with sharp, rocky terrain below, when 
					two P-38 Lightnings appeared and gave the bomber escort to an emergency landing 
					field on the Island of Vis, off the coast of Croatia, Yugoslavia. As the plane approached 
					the island, red flares went up to signal the position of the runway - a stretch of not more 
					than 1,000ft surrounded by high hills. The pilot, already experienced by many missions, 
					was over-cautious about the short landing strip and was planning to go around for a 
					second look, but the co-pilot overruled him because the bombardier needed attention 
					and going around the high hills was risky. So, he lowered the flaps and landing gear. 
					The pilot overshot the runway so that the wheels touched halfway down the strip. 
					Speed was about 60 mph when it got to the far end - beyond were grape arbors and 
					chicken coops. The plane tore through those but then came to a 20 foot drop to a 
					muddy pond. The pilots stood on the brakes, the plane nosed down, and came 
					to a rest with the nose compartment badly damaged. As soon as the crew got out, 
					Jugoslav-Tito Partisans and British Rangers rushed up to help. They took the wounded 
					bombardier to a field hospital where he was given emergency treatment. The bomber�s 
					main spar had buckled so it was not flyable. The next morning the crew returned to 
					Amendola by ferrying a B-17 that had previously landed and been repaired

					{first combat mission 25Jul44}.  Suspected of a  fundamental airframe fault, 
					the plane was report by crews as sluggish and had trouble maintaining position 
					in formation and was referred to as a �Lemon�. Consequently the ball turret
					had been removed by late Oct44. Battle  damaged during a mission to industrial, 
					oil and rail installations in Cologne, Germany 15Oct44. En route to the target, 
					flak was meagre and inaccurate. From the I.P. to the target, flak was continuous, 
					increasing in intensity and accuracy. Some meagre, inaccurate flak was
 					experienced on the route back. Battle damaged on a mission to the I.G. Farben 
					chemical and synthetic oil works at Leuna, Merseburg, Germany 2Nov44. 
					The bomber had been fitted with four reconditioned engines but No.1 engine
					would not produce full power. Additional power was required from the other 
					three engines to maintain formation. The box barrage of flak was heavy around 
					the target. An estimated 500 Luftwaffe fighters went up to meet the bomber force. 
					Shortly after the target the plane was attacked by enemy fighters. Failed to return from 
					a mission to the railway marshalling yards at Niederlahnstein, Koblenz, Germany 29Jan45.
					Following the failure of No.2 engine before reaching the target, the plane lagged
					behind the formation. It was badly damaged when force landed on the continent.

					target was intense and accurate. Struck by flak over the target and dropped 
					below the formation with an engine disabled. Another engine was later 
					disabled and the propeller feathered. Passing over Heligoland to cross the 
					North Sea, the crew jettisoned surplus equipment to save weight. Flying on 
					only two engines, the pilot had limited ability to hold altitude and level flight. 
					In addition, with a strong headwind and reduced power, there was high 
					concern about having sufficient fuel to reach England. Preparing for ditching, 
					the pilot was able to continue and arrived back for a late but safe landing at

					This aircraft was having trouble with No.3 engine and jettisoned three 
					bombs south, southwest of Lake Balaton, Hungary. Over the target, the 
					plane was struck by flak. No.1 engine was knocked out; No.2 propeller 
					was windmilling and could not be stopped. The aircraft began losing 
					altitude, left the formation, began jettisoning loose equipment and the 
					ball turret then turned for home. Three hours after leaving the target, 
					this aircraft force landed at Belgrade, Serbia, Yugoslavia. No one was
					injured. Non-flying crew flew home on a Douglas C-47. The bomber, 
					flown by the original pilot and co-pilot, departed Belgrade in company 
					with a Douglas C-47 to Bari, Italy 10Jan45. The B-17 had been repaired i
					n Belgrade by the 324th Service Group but didn�t have a navigator or 
					navigational equipment aboard and the Command set worked only on 
					the �D� channel. It was planned that the B-17 fly on the wing of the 
					C-47 back to Italy. At Belgrade, the weather was better than it had been 
					for the preceding four or five days with a ceiling of approximately 
					1,000ft, broken and eight or nine-tenths covered. After leaving Belgrade
					the pair climbed over the first layer of clouds to 6,000ft and headed 
					slightly southwest looking for a break in the solid mass of stratocumulus 
					and cumulus clouds to the west, which would enable them to fly a more 
					direct route to Foggia, since neither plane had much of a safety margin 
					where gasoline was concerned. They proceeded on course as far as U�ice, 
					Serbia, but without seeing any breaks in the west and then turned on a 
					course where they picked up the river system that went south to Metkovi?, 
					Serbia, and the pass to the coast. They attempted to go down under
					the clouds and fly the river valley, but found that clouds went down to the 
					ground. Up to this point the weather had been broken and the C-47 crew had 
					been able to see the B-17 at all times and the ground at frequent intervals. 
					But they could see that from here on the clouds were covered and the entire 
					field of vision to the east, south, and west; they also seemed to go up to well 
					over 20,000ft. In view of these conditions and before proceeding, the C-47
					pilot called the B-17 pilot and advised him it looked impossible to go under,
					or around, and asked him whether he wanted to turn back to Belgrade; this 
					was the point of no return. The B-17 pilot elected to continue on and they 
					began to climb on course. The C-47 climbed to 5,000ft encountering light 
					snow and icing conditions until they saw the pass through a break in the clouds 
					and advised the B-17 pilot to turn west towards the coast. The C-47 pilot saw the 
					B-17 bank to the right. This was the last time that anyone either saw or heard 
					from the aircraft. Between the last mentioned position and where the C-47 
					broke out on the coast, it was in slushy snow and heavy icing conditions
					for approximately 45 to 50 minutes and were forced to use the deicers.

					Named "Miss Bella/Miss BeHaven".  Failed to return from a mission to railway marshalling yards 
					at Komrom, Hungary 14Mar45 (10RMC). The aircraft was hit by flak prior to the target. 
					With a loss of engine power, the crew jettisoned the bombs. 
					With one engine failed and two on reduced power, the pilot attempted to reach Russian lines in Poland. 
					Losing altitude, the pilot engaged the auto-pilot and the crew bailed out at 1,500 feet near Myslenice, 
					south of Krakw, Poland. The aircraft continued to fly without a crew for 240 kilometres and 
					crash landed in a field between Krotoszyn and Ostrw, south-east of Pozna?, Poland. 
					The plane came from the southeast. It hit the ground near a clump of bushes, bounced off, 
					flew a few hundred meters and hit the ground again, landing on its fuselage. 
					Scraping on the ground, it turned right 120 degrees and stopped with an engine still running. 
					reckage remained in the field for three years then cut into sections and scrapped.

					the pilot dropped his left wing and slipped out of formation, narrowly missing a collision 
					with another bomber. The plane turned left losing altitude very fast. The flames were fierce, 
					extending back past the tail, and seemed to be coming from the intersection of the right wing

					{first combat mission 3Sep44}. Battle damaged on a mission to the Sudetenlndische 
					Treibstoffwerke AG synthetic oil refinery at Zlu u Most, Brx, Sudetenland 9Dec44 (10RMC).
					The Group took off for a mission to Brx but turned back because of bad weather.
					Aircraft of the 20th and 429th Squadrons then made two runs on an oil refinery at 
					Regensburg, Germany but did not bomb. They then made a third run, changed PFF lead 
					but the change was made too late to bomb Regensburg, so they continued to the koda 
					armament works, Pilsen, Czechoslovakia. After bombing, they continued on, delaying turning 
					off the bomb run and encountered heavy, intense flak at Prague for about fifteen minutes. 
					The togglier was hit by flak knocking his helmet off; a big piece just missed the engineer, 
					sticking in the turret. The plane then flew through snow and was in it for about 45 minutes 
					when ice sent it into a spin. The pilot gave orders to prepare to bail out, but he regained 
					control after dropping about 7,000ft. There were about a dozen flak holes in the wings.
					Force landed on return from a mission to railway marshalling yards at Linz, Austria 27Dec44.

					Failed to return from a mission to the Oberschlesische Hydrierwerke A.G. synthetic oil refinery at 
					Blechhammer, Ko?le, Prussia 13Sep44 (5POW:5EVD). Damaged by flak that detonated a bomb 
					as it was exiting the aircraft, fire swept the fuselage before being quickly extinguished. 
					The Plexiglas nose had been blown off and blast induced splinters caused significant damage 
					on board as well as riddling its wings and fuselage with holes. 
					The blast also severely wounded the bombardier and for a moment he lost consciousness. 
					No.1 and no.4 engines were disabled but the pilot tried to fly the aircraft back to base in Italy. 
					The bomber dropped out of formation and some forty minutes later was down to oxygen level at 
					12,000 feet where it was quickly pounced on by three German Messerschmitt Bf 109 fighters. 
					This was the final blow and with the plane losing altitude rapidly and with the Carpathian Mountains 
					in view, the pilot gave the order to bail out. As the plane passed the Babia Gra mountain 
					peak at 4,000 feet, each of the crew attached their chest parachutes and jumped out over 
					Jab?onka, Poland; the plane crashed at ?reka near Koniwka, Poland.MACR 8620

					Flak was heavy and accurate resulting in wounding of four airmen. 
					The pilot elected to land at Rome on the return flight because his 
					navigator was seriously wounded. Battle damaged on a mission to the 
					I.G. Farben oil refinery at Moosbierbaum, Vienna, Austria 11Dec44 (1KIA:9RMC). 
					Flak was heavy and, returning to base, the pilot made a safe landing at the

					suffering from anoxia. Battle damaged during a mission to the 
					Sudetenlndische Treibstoffwerke AG synthetic oil refinery at Zlu u Most, Brx, 
					Sudetenland 25Dec44 (9RMC). Flak over the target was heavy and accurate; 
					an engine was struck and damaged over the target. Soon after a second engine failed 
					and at some point a third. After barely making it past the Alps the pilot sent out a 
					Mayday and the crew prepared to ditch in the Adriatic. British Air-sea rescue
					sent a Royal Air Force Supermarine Walrus amphibious aircraft to rescue the crew 
					once they had ditched. Before ditching the Walrus relayed a communication that 
					indicated a short landing strip recently abandoned by the German air force was 
					available near the beach at Ancona, Italy. The British Eighth Army had driven the 
					German Tenth Army back far enough for the British to occupy the landing strip.
					At the last moment the bomber crew decided to try the strip instead of ditching 
					in the freezing Adriatic. Upon landing the B-17 went off the end of the strip and got its 
					wheels mired in the mud. {final combat mission 24Apr45}. {51 missions}. Returned to US.

					Damaged by flak and force landed at Sombor airfield, Serbia, Yugoslavia, which was the base 
					of the Yugoslav 11th Fighter Wing. The crew was assisted by Yugoslav partisans in evading capture 
					and returned to their base in Italy. Yugoslav mechanics repaired the bomber to flying condition 
					using parts from other damaged airplanes that were on this and other airfields across Yugoslavia. 
					The plane was integrated early into the Yugoslav Air Force / Jugoslovensko Ratno Vazduhoplovstvo (JRV). 
					It was marked with partisan markings - red stars - but only on the both sides of the fuselage, making 
					a combination of partisan/Soviet/American markings; all other American national and tactical markings 
					remained unchanged. An order came from partisan command that this B-17 was to be handed over 
					to the Soviets; this was done and Soviet pilots flew the airplane to an unknown destination Aug45.

					Crashed on a personnel flight from Bari to Naples, Italy 20Apr45 (2 crew KIS: 20 passengers KIS: 1 passenger INJ). 
					20 aboard killed, including 4 female Air Corps personnel
					The pilot took off from Gioia del Colle Field, Bari, Italy with military passengers for Marcianise Field,
					Caserta, north of Naples, Italy. During his briefing for the flight, he was not given a clear idea of the 
					weather he could expect at destination. Without a co-pilot, but with an engineer presumably sitting 
					in the other pilots seat, he was allowed to depart with his passengers. Approaching his destination, 
					his inexperience caused the pilot to let down through clouds without knowing his true position 
					[the plane did not have a navigator as part of the crew]. He found himself in a narrow valley a
					nd had to climb out to avoid terrain. With full power and in a steep right turn, the plane struck the 
					side of a hill, slid uphill where it hit a fifteen foot stone wall, demolishing the bomber. 
					Parts of the propellers were thrown 500 yards beyond the initial impact point. 
					The tail section aft of the ball turret separated from the fuselage; the forward fuselage and wings 
					were destroyed by fire and made identification of the victims difficult. 
					One passenger managed to escape the wreckage and survived. 
					The bomber had crashed into the side of a hill at Valle di Maddaloni, five miles northeast of Caserta, Naples

					Battle damaged on a mission to an oil refinery at Korneuburg, Austria but diverted to the railway

					29Dec44 (1WIA:9RMC). The primary target was to be the railway marshalling yard at Innsbruck, Austria. 
					With bad weather over the Alps, the formation turned back to the secondary target in Italy. 
					En route to the secondary target, the navigator of the group lead plane was wounded by flak 
					and the group lead commander, new to the group, apparently took over the navigator duties. 
					He changed course and led the group over known anti-aircraft batteries. 
					Flak over the target resulted in damage to the aircraft and wounding the co-pilot.

					Battle damaged on a mission to the Braunkohle-Benzin AG synthetic oil refinery at Schwarzheide, 
					Ruhland, Germany 15Mar45 (10RMC). The primary target was not attacked because of 
					cloud cover and PFF failure. Diverted to the secondary target, an oil refinery at Kolin, Czechoslovakia. 
					88mm flak struck a fuel tank without exploding. That lost the fuel needed to return to Italy. 
					A piece of flak struck the number four engine on the bomb run. The propeller oversped until the 
					shaft finally broke. Number two engine had a hole in it and the exhaust collector ring was shot away. 
					There was a hole in the ball turret, the oxygen system in the waist was out, and the VHF radio 
					wasn't working. With the bombs still in the bay, the plane dropped before jettisoning the bombs. 
					At 10,000ft the plane was able to maintain altitude and headed for the Russian lines. 
					As the bomber circled Lodz, Poland, looking for a Russian airfield, a Yakovlev fighter made a pass in front. 
					The crew later learned that the Yak had shot down a B-24 Liberator from England that was also 
					attempting to make an emergency landing at Lodz; the Germans had used captured U.S. bombers 
					against Soviet forces. The no.2 propeller had been windmilling when it wouldnt feather. 
					After the engine seized for lack of oil, the stage was set for a fire once the slipstream was gone; 
					the fire started after rolling to a stop but was quickly extinguished. Force landed behind Soviet 
					lines at Lodz, Poland. Repaired by Soviet Air Force. 890th Aviation Regiment, 45th TBAP

					(first combat mission 7Oct44}. Failed to return from a mission to railway 
					marshalling yards at Munich, Germany 22Nov44 (10RMC). 
					The crew dropped their bombs with the Group from 30,300 feet in bad weather. 
					A few minutes later number four engine oil pressure dropped, the propeller 
					oversped and was feathered. Then the superchargers failed on both outboard engines. 
					The pilot could not keep up with the formation. He set the airplane on autopilot and 
					started a gradual descent. By then both outboard propellers had been feathered. 
					He took up a heading for an emergency landing at Falconera, Ancona, Italy. 
					In the meantime the crew had jettisoned all the equipment. They made it over the Alps 
					and broke into the clear, only to be attacked by flak from three sources as they 
					flew southward. The pilot dove the airplane to pick up speed and tried evasive action. 
					Flak must have hit the fuel tanks, because the fuel pressure dropped quickly. 
					Over the Adriatic Sea at 3,500 feet, the pilot alerted the crew to ditching. 
					At 1,000ft the number two engine began smoking badly, so both the number two 
					and three propellers were feathered. The pilot lowered half wing flaps and made 
					what the crew described as a perfect power-off ditching in the Adriatic Sea off 
					Pola, Istria, Italy. The crew cleared the airplane in twenty-five seconds. 
					The airplane floated for fifty-five minutes. German boats came out from shore, 
					but before they could reach the crew, British Spitfires flew over and drove them away. 
					The Spitfires circled the crew for approximately one and a half hours until a 
					Royal Air Force Air-Sea Rescue Supermarine Walrus amphibious aircraft arrived. 
					The crew boarded the Walrus, but it couldn't takeoff with that much load, 
					so started taxying toward Rimini. Thirty minutes later another Walrus landed. 
					Four crewmen who had been injured in the ditching transferred to the second 
					Walrus and took off. The other Walrus still couldn't takeoff, and continued 
					taxying toward shore. The crew dropped anchor for the night and resumed 
					taxying early the next morning. Later that morning, a launch came along side 
					and took the crew to Ancona. From there they were flown to Bari, Italy. {17 missions}.

					were fluid. It also became apparent that a safe descent could not be made 
					through the overcast without the flight instruments. The only working flight 
					instrument was the pilot's magnetic compass. The crew bailed out somewhere 
					between Neufchateau and Florenville, Belgium. The bomber crashed in Belgium.

					Accident returning from a recalled mission to a railway marshalling yard at 
					Stuttgart, Germany 16Dec44 (2KIA:7RMC). Because of deteriorating weather 
					conditions, the mission was aborted and the flight recalled. To prevent 
					mid-air collisions, the formation of bombers was ordered to break rank and 
					head for separate bases in England. On several occasions, the pilot of this B-17 
					requested bearings back to England, but was misled by false signals from 
					German transmitters. This resulted in the aircraft flying too far north of the 
					English bases. Eventually, while flying close to the Scottish / English border, 
					the pilot descended through the clouds in an attempt to establish visual bearings, 
					severe icing having been experienced at heights greater than this. 
					Unfortunately, however, the pilot descended too low to clear the snow covered Cheviots. 
					The aircraft crashed in blizzard conditions into the side of the 2,600 foot West Hill 
					narrowly missing a rocky outcrop known as Braydon Crag of the Cheviot mountains 
					near Alnwick, England. It then slid across a peat bog, coming to a halt on the hill shoulder. 
					The nose of the aircraft had been completely crushed killing the two occupants; 
					the pilot was seriously injured when one of the propellers smashed through the 
					cockpit breaking his jaw. Surviving injured and dazed crewmen were discovered by 
					a Border Collie sheepdog named Sheila who then summoned and guided her 
					owner and his neighbour to the crash site where the crewmen were rescued. 
					When the bomber crashed, its bomb load was still intact. Fortunately, these 
					munitions had not exploded on impact with the ground, however, just as the crew 
					reached the safety of the shepherd's cottage on lower ground, the entire bomb load 
					exploded. Condemned salvage 13Feb45. The shepherds were awarded the 
					British Empire Medal and Sheila received the animal Victoria Cross (Dickin Medal). 
					The bereaved mother of the togglier wrote a thank you letter to the shepherd stating 
					that she would like to purchase a pup from Sheila if she ever had a litter. 
					A few months later Sheila obliged and the first of the new pups was dispatched by 
					the R.A.F. to Columbia, S.C. as a gift to the toggliers mother. The pup, called Tibbie, 
					for eleven years and was adopted as the town pet of Columbia. An engine, with 
					a fuel tank and other parts, is on display in the Bamburgh Castle Aviation 
					Artefacts Museum, Bamburgh Castle, Northumberland, England..

					Named "Maiden USA".  . {first combat mission 27Sep44}. 
					Battle damaged during an Operation Thunderclap mission to railway 
					marshalling yards at Tempelhof, Berlin, Germany 3Feb45. 
					Flak over the target was intense and accurate. 
					Shortly after dropping the bombs, 155mm flak shells exploded 
					close to the bomber. The third burst missed being a direct hit but was 
					close enough for the impact to cause damage to the nose and no.2 engine. 
					The propeller started to overspeed but failed to feather. 
					However, several minutes later, another attempt was successful. 
					But then it was noticed that no.4 propeller was over speeding and 
					was feathered. The navigator had been wounded by flak. 
					With two failed engines, returning to England was not going to be possible. 
					The pilots decided to land on the nearest airstrip they could find once 
					crossing over into Soviet held territory, Kuflavo, Poland. 
					After successfully reaching Kuflavo, the pilot [Myron King] and crew 
					were treated like kings while their bomber was being repaired. 
					Two days later the crew was warming up their plane when a Russian C-47 
					landed at the airfield and a Soviet general stepped out of the plane. 
					King's co-pilot walked over to the plane and started a conversation 
					with the Soviet general through a young man who was standing by the general, 
					and whom was thought to be the Russian officer's interpreter. 
					King subsequently joined the group, and the conversation with the Russian 
					general and the interpreter continued. King wanted to fly his B-17 to the 
					airbase at Lublin, located south of Warsaw. There, he hoped to get necessary 
					repairs and refuel with the high-octane gasoline needed for the bomber's engines. 
					The Soviet general, however, insisted that the Americans must fly with him instead to Lida,
					which was located north of Warsaw. King acceded to the Soviet general's plan 
					and took off in his B-17 along with the Soviet C-47. Shortly before take-off, 
					however, the Americans discovered that the young interpreter was on board. 
					Believing, however, that he was part of the Soviet general's staff, King decided 
					to take the stowaway with them to Lida, where the young man could re-join his boss. 
					The B-17 had not been in the air very long, however, when the interpreter 
					informed King that he had an uncle in England and wanted to return with them 
					when they returned with their B-17 to England. While airborne, the interpreter, 
					who apparently was wearing some type of British uniform underneath his 
					Russian Army overcoat, took an American flight suit from the B-17's emergency 
					kit and donned it. King later explained that, as it was minus 53 degrees Fahrenheit 
					in the plane, the young man needed warmer clothing. As it began to get dark, 
					both planes landed at Szczuczyn; Lida was too far, and the Soviet general did not 
					want to fly at night. The interpreter did not want to leave the safety of the plane, 
					but King insisted that he go with the rest of the crew to eat in the nearby Soviet mess hall. 
					Ultimately, the Russians discovered that the interpreter was not an American 
					and not part of King's crew, and they took him away. Under questioning, 
					King admitted that the interpreter was not part of his crew but insisted that he 
					had transported the stowaway only because he thought he was the Soviet general's 
					interpreter. King also signed a statement in which he claimed that he 
					intended to turn over the man after he reached his ultimate destination, 
					the USAAF air base in Poltava, Ukraine. King and his crew did eventually travel from 
					Lida to Poltava. While they had hoped to obtain clearance from the Soviets to 
					fly to either Italy or England, this did not occur. On the contrary, they were taken to 
					Moscow on a Russian transport plane and then delivered to the Military Mission to Moscow. 
					Eventually the entire crew returned home safely but not before the pilot, Myron King, 
					became the first and only American to receive a court-martial in the Soviet Union; 
					his service good conduct record was sacrificed to appease the Soviets. 
					The aircraft was repaired and flown to Poltava (Station 559), Ukraine.

					After dropping the bombs, fifteen of them were stuck in the bomb rack. 
					The crew left the bomb doors open to get rid of the bombs as soon as they had

					Number three engine was hit and caught fire; flak shrapnel killed the co-pilot.

					Battle damaged on a mission to the Braunkohle-Benzin AG synthetic oil 
					refinery at Schwarzheide, Ruhland, Germany 19Mar45. 
					Crossing the front lines the formation met some accurate flak. 
					Shortly after the crew had to drop four of the bomb load of twelve 500 pound GPs 
					in order to keep up with the formation. The plane was also hit by some 
					accurate flak in the Dresden area. The cloud condition was scattered, 
					with heavy haze, so the lead crew decided to try to make a run on the 
					primary target. When they got closer it was decided that there were too 
					many clouds, but by this time, in order to reach the secondary target, 
					a motor vehicle plant at Zwickau, the formation had to circle Ruhland. 
					There was heavy flak all the way around, and the formation couldn't go 
					much farther east because of the Russian front lines.
					Enemy Me 262 jet fighters attacked the formation on the bomb run. 
					The pilot calculated that he didn't have enough fuel to cross the North Sea 
					to reach England, so he landed at Saint-Trond (A-92), Belgium. 
					After landing the crew found a fairly large hole in number four 
					engine which had damaged the exhaust and a cylinder head. 
					There was also one in number two engine, several in the wings, 
					a few in the horizontal stabilizer, a couple in the waist and one beneath 
					the radio room. After looking the plane over, engineering wouldn't let the pilot 
					depart for Knettishall. The crew stripped everything moveable out of it 
					and put it all in another plane of the 388BG which had landed there.

					Flak was encountered at several locations en route and on the return home; 
					flak around Hamburg was intense and accurate. Prior to the target, 
					fighter attacks created havoc for five minutes or more as the tight formation 
					of bombers became scattered. After the target, the remaining bombers 
					turned north towards the North Sea into a tremendous headwind which 
					slowed the planes down to a ground speed of ninety miles per hour. 
					They were immediately pounced on by German fighters which made ten 
					passes at the formation. With the right wing on fire, the pilot put the 
					aircraft into a controlled steep dive to put out the flames. The aircraft 
					then went into a flat spin, two airmen bailed out and the aircraft was 
					last seen still under control. Crashed at Weert, Netherlands. {26 missions}

					Sudetenland 16Oct44 (7WIA:3RMC). but bad weather caused the Group to 
					divert to an alternate target, the railway marshalling yards at Salzburg, Austria. 
					Flak at Salzburg was heavy and accurate, resulting in wounds to the navigator. 
					Damaged on return from a mission to the Rhenania and Danubia oil storage 
					facilities at Regensburg, Germany 5Feb45 (10RMC). The plane was forced to 
					make a landing at Falconara airdrome, on the Adriatic coast south of Ancona, 
					because of fuel shortage. The pilot left the formation after it passed the coast, 
					and was out over the Adriatic. Later he asked for directions to the nearest field 
					and was told he was thirty miles off the coast. 
					At that point engines number one and three began to sputter, and he 
					ordered the crew to ditching stations. The plane was at 9,000ft. 
					The crew had trouble getting the ball turret gunner out of the turret. 
					In the meantime the plane had descended to 500 feet over the water. 
					At that point the crew sighted land and was given a heading to Falconara. 
					A landing was made half way down the runway and dragging ball turret guns 
					stopped the airplane. No one was injured, and the crew returned to Amendola 
					two days later. Battle damaged on a mission to railway marshalling yards 
					at Linz, Austria 25Feb45 (3WIA:7RMC). Smoke from other bombing obscured 
					the target and the aircraft diverted to the railway marshalling yards at 
					Amstettin, Austria. Flak was heavy and accurate, wounding the pilot, 
					co-pilot and a waist gunner. Flew on the final Fifteenth Air Force combat mission 
					of the war to the railway station and marshalling yard at Salzburg, Austria 1May45.

					{first combat mission 12Oct44}. 
					Damaged on a mission to the oil refinery at Moosbierbaum, Vienna, Austria 
					6Nov44 (1WIA:9RMC). The plane had three engines detonating badly thirty 
					minutes before target time. The pilot had to use maximum power and jettison 
					part of his bomb load to stay with the formation. The crew dropped their 
					remaining bombs over Moosbierbaum, however, the 20th Squadron did not. 
					The pilot stayed with the Squadron as it proceeded to bomb the alternate 
					marshalling yards at Graz, Austria. Going over the target at Graz, flak severely 
					damaged the right wing, cut some fuel lines and damaged some fuel tanks. 
					The number one propeller had to be feathered. Unable to return to base,
					the pilot made a safe emergency landing at Vis island, Croatia, Yugoslavia. 
					The crew, except for the bombardier, flew a 301st Bomb Group B-17 back 
					to Amendola that evening. Their airplane remained at Vis for repairs. 
					Failed to return from a mission to the Oberschlesische Hydrierwerke A.G. 
					synthetic oil refinery at Blechhammer, Ko?le, Prussia 19Dec44 (10RMC). 
					On a seven-minute bomb run, the plane was three minutes from the target 
					when it was badly hit by flak. No.2 engine was disabled and no.4 engine 
					was on fire. The plane lost altitude immediately and had sustained a direct hit 
					through the right wing fuel tank. The pilot set a southeast course hoping to 
					make it to the Russian lines. The plane just skimmed over and around mountains 
					in Czechoslovakia and nearly crashed head on with a German command plane 
					in a mountain canyon, then attacked by two Russian fighters near the Hungarian border. 
					The upper turret gunner sent one down in smoke and the other fighter then took off. 
					Crash landed near the front lines at Nagybnya, Hungary. {18 missions}.

					Failed to return from a mission to the Sudetenlndische Treibstoffwerke AG 
					synthetic oil refinery at Zlu u Most, Brx, Sudetenland 25Dec44. 
					The plane was on the bombing run when no.1 and no.2 propellers began 
					over speeding caused by flak damage; both propellers were feathered. 
					Losing air speed and altitude, the bombs were jettisoned and plane 
					turned out of formation. Despite repeated efforts, the no.1 engine failed to respond. 
					The pilot decided that according to the distance to go and the remaining fuel, 
					it would be impossible to make it back to base. He asked for directions to the 
					nearest Russian airfield at Gyngys, Hungary. When they arrived there the 
					crew couldnt find the airfield. They circled around and landed in a frozen cornfield 
					at Karancssg, Hungary. The bomber was escorted in by some Russian fighters 
					and landed safely. After much work and many attempts by the Russian mechanics 
					to repair the plane, they sent to Debreczen, Hungary for a new propeller 
					governor from a B-17G that had landed there [44-6529, 301st Bomb Group].

					at Schwarzheide, Ruhland, Germany 15Mar45 (10POW). Damaged by flak, 
					the aircraft lost power in two engines and was forced to drop from the formation. 
					The crew knew that they were near the Russian lines so they headed in that direction, 
					intending to fly over the Russian lines and jump. But after taking stock of the situation, 
					the pilot decided they should remain airborne and try to reach a partisan-held airfield in 
					Yugoslavia. The plane began losing altitude rapidly and to lighten it, 
					the crew tossed out everything in sight, including their ammunition. 
					Almost immediately, they were set upon by a German fighter. Only two of their thirteen 
					guns could be used against the fighter, which made the situation tense. 
					As the fighter made several passes, the crippled bomber dove for cover in the clouds. 
					Unfortunately, this manoeuvre blinded the navigator and the crew lost their way. 
					Their only option was to jump; all crew members bailed out. 
					The plane was last seen about six miles north of Grlitz, Germany heading towards 
					Russian lines and crashed nearby

					Germany 14Mar45 (2KIA:7RMC). The no.2 engine lost power and the 
					aircraft started to fall back from the formation. Crossing the enemy coast over 
					Belgium, the crew turned back towards home. The aircraft lost altitude but the engine 
					ran normally without turbo. Prior to reaching the English coast at Lowestoft, the 
					engine started smoking, filling the fuselage. As the propeller was being feathered, 
					the engine burst into flames behind the firewall. Now over England at about 4,000ft, 
					the captain ordered the crew to bail out and, with the fuselage filled with dense smoke, 
					he turned back towards the North Sea. The pilot bailed out too low for his parachute to open. 
					The bomber crashed in a paddock near Grove Farm, Carlton Colville, Suffolk and exploded. 
					Condemned salvage 14Mar45. The wreckage was discovered during construction of new 
					housing at Carlton Colville October 1986. It is now in the custody of the Norfolk and Suffolk

					towards the clouds, still intact and with no visible smoke or flames and

					The bomb load was jettisoned over enemy territory and the plane returned early. 
					The aircraft struck a tree on the base after landing at Grafton Underwood. 
					The airplane was landed satisfactorily and had turned off the runway. 
					It was taxyed on the inner engines; after about 1,000ft the pilot started a left turn. 
					The brakes did not appear to be working so the pilot applied full power alternately

					left turn until the right wing struck a tree and stopped the aircraft. 
					Damage to right inner and out wing panel; fuselage wrinkled and caved in 
					between stations 5 & 6; wrinkled at root of left wing; left inner wing panel.

					{first combat mission 4Nov44}. Failed to return from an Operation Thunderclap 
					mission to railway marshalling yards at Tempelhof, Berlin, Germany 3Feb45 (9RMC). 
					Flak over the target was intense and accurate. 
					Damaged by flak, two engines damaged and losing altitude, the aircraft force 
					landed in Russian territory at Toru?, Poland. The Americans were not prisoners, 
					but they were not allowed to leave until Moscow approved and they had no means 
					to leave anyhow. The crew discovered another crew from the 490th Bomb Group whose 
					plane, Giddy (43-38150), had lost two engines and crash landed in Poland. 
					They managed to make contact and decided to try to repair this B-17. It meant 
					removing an engine from Giddy and using it to replace the damaged one on 
					Stardust. They managed to borrow a truck from the Russians for transport and 
					some poles, got a lot of help from the village people and manhandled the engine from Giddy, 
					transporting it to this B-17 in the truck. The plan was to attach it as best they could, 
					then hope they would get a chance to run for it. It would require stealth, courage and bribery. 
					Both American crews bartered with the Soviet soldiers. Several revolvers and a $10 fountain pen 
					paid for the gasoline for their secret flight; a $75 wrist watch given to a Russian officer 
					secured a Ford tractor to haul the second engine back. According to war records, 			
					with the $30 the pilot had in his own wallet, he bribed Russian MPs to overlook the 
					cutting down of two telephone poles needed as hoists. 
					Using salvaged tools left by the Germans, the crews worked in plain sight of the other Russians. 
					The Americans feared too much attention, though, and made sure to drink with the Russian officers in 
					Toru?, toasting Stalin, Roosevelt and Churchill, the day villagers hoisted the plane in the 
					potato field. Early on St. Patricks Day, 1945, the Americans jumped into Stardust and 
					began to taxy along the frozen ground. A single Soviet guard waved frantically to stop, but the 
					Russians never chased them as they cleared the field and lifted off. There were nineteen airmen 
					on that flight. Without armament or ammunition, having been jettisoned 
					before the forced landings, and needing to avoid any enemy encounters, 
					the pilot circled around the airfield and flew to Foggia, Italy, where he knew there 
					was an American air base. He landed there and stayed a while before eventually 
					flying the last leg to England, making another stop in southern France which was in allied 
					control by then. Resumed combat operations 30Mar45. Flew on the final Eighth Air Force combat
					 mission of the war to the koda armament works and airfield at Pilsen, Czechoslovakia 25Apr45. 
					The plane suffered major battle damage and had problems with landing gear on return to base. 
					{42 missions}. Converted for trooping, stripped of all armament and turrets, capable of

					There was a solid undercast of several cloud layers all the way into the target.

					As the plane neared Berlin. The pilot could see some flak coming up through the clouds

					(10RTD). En route to the target, engines were detonating and using excessive fuel. 
					Flak struck the fuselage aft of the ball turret and control cables were severed.. 
					After leaving the target, the pilot discovered that there was insufficient gasoline 
					to return to home base, that the oxygen system was depleted and that two men 
					of the crew had been wounded. He headed for an emergency airfield at Debreczen, 
					Hungary. When the bomber crossed the Russian front lines, it was met by six Russian
					fighters, one of which fired warning shots. Crew held their fire, the pilot rocked the 
					wings and the fighters left. Because of uncertainty of position in bad weather and 
					condition of two wounded men, the pilot force landed in an open, snow-covered 
					field at Tiszakeszi, Hungary. Upon landing the tail wheel was torn off and the tail 
					section damaged. The pilot arranged with Russians for repair of the aircraft. 
					Such arrangements necessitated several trips to Miskolc airdrome. Later 
					Russian engineering personell were transported by truck to Tiszakesci and 
					repaired the damaged aircraft. A tail wheel from a German Heinkel bomber 
					aircraft was installed. The bomber took off from the snow covered field and hit a 
					small tree with the tip of the left wing, but able to fly on to Miskolc, about 
					thirty-five miles away. The bomber was serviced and gasoline was put in the tanks. 
					The crew stayed at a local hotel in Miskolc for five days before they were 
					allowed to take-off; they then flew to their home base, arriving Amendola 18Feb45. 
					The rear half of the plane had been damaged in Hungary so the ground crew 
					replaced the rear section with a camouflaged rear half, ending up with a silver 
					front half and brownish green back half. The crew named the plane HALF BREED.

					ripping through the cockpit causing the oxygen system and stored flares to catch fire. 
					Flak also hit number 2 and number 3 engines causing them to catch fire. 
					The aircraft started losing altitude and the pilot was having difficulty controlling the plane
					which was in a steep dive. Because of the seriousness of the event, the pilot gave the 
					order to bail out; the radio operator and tail gunner jumped. The aircraft fell from 
					about 22,000ft to approximately 14,000ft when pilot was able to regain control of the aircraft. 
					The pilot and co-pilot had been burned by the fires. The fires had been extinguished and

					Flew on the final Eighth Air Force combat mission of the war to the koda 
					armament works and airfield at Pilsen, Czechoslovakia 25Apr45. 
					Battle damaged on that mission when a flak hit knocked out the no.1 engine 
					and blew part of the cowling off no.2. Engine no.2 soon went out and the plane 
					began losing altitude. Even with the bomb load out, the aircraft continued 
					losing altitude. The crew tossed out everything loose to lighten the plane. 
					The aircraft finally levelled off at about 7,200 feet. With insufficient power 
					to get back in formation, the crew plotted a course back to Bassingbourn 
					slightly north of the briefed route. They headed back alone, at 97 MPH. 
					Fuel was so low by the time they neared Bassingbourn that he did not have 
					time for a normal approach so as to land into the wind. The pilot had to 
					make a straight-in landing with the wind. Even so, he did an excellent job of 
					putting the underpowered damaged aircraft down on the runway. 
					When the plane came to a stop and crew was getting out, the Control Tower 
					called for the pilot to report to the tower immediately. 
					He brushed off his "wings" as he went back anticipating being commended for 
					making such a good landing under the circumstances. Instead, he was chewed 
					out for landing down-wind! Returned to US by 401st Bomb Squadron crew on

					was scheduled to bomb Vienna. After takeoff, the bomber climbed to join the formation 
					then the crew heard that Vienna was covered by clouds, so they proceeded to Maribor, 
					Slovenia, Yugoslavia. Just as the bombs were released a flak shell exploded right beneath 
					the aircraft, severing the hydraulic line to the controls to the bomb-bay doors. 
					The co-pliot had been fatally wounded. Soon the plane rocked again, this time with a burst 
					below the number three engine, setting it on fire. Then a shell exploded below the 
					number two engine, severing the oil line. The left wheel had dropped down from the 
					engine nacelle, increasing the wind drag. They tried to head for Switzerland, 
					but were losing altitude too fast. As they couldnt cross the Alps, the pilot requested 
					the heading for the emergency landing airfield on Vis Island, Croatia, off the coast 
					of Yugoslavia. Vis came into view, and as the aircraft was lining up for the runway, 
					the number four engine stopped, out of fuel. As soon as they had lined up, a red flare 
					came arcing up - a go around signal. As the aircraft was making a left turn over the 
					Adriatic, the final engine quit, out of fuel. After the bomber was ditched, the remaining 
					crew managed to climb out of the plane. The plane stayed afloat for about ten minutes, 
					before finally going down nose-first, taking the co-pilots body with it. The crew were soon 
					picked up by a local fisherman and British soldiers from the radar unit stationed on the

					engines made an ominous sound, audible for miles. People in ?ernkovice, 
					Czechoslovakia were at work in their fields and gardens when the plane, 
					in flames, arrived from the west. It quickly lost altitude and headed across 
					Li?no to ?ernkovice. The first parachute appeared in the sky; in the last seconds, 
					the crew were leaving the damaged aircraft. In the area above the first houses 
					in ?ernkovice, the plane suddenly changed direction and headed steeply to the left 
					down to the pond. There, at an altitude of about fifty meters in the air, 
					it exploded. Wreckage was scattered around. The engines fell behind the stream, 
					as did most of the fuselage. Part of the wing with the cockpit and navigator's cabin 
					fell into the drained pond and half of the left wing on the meadow behind the pond. 
					Crashed ?ernkovice, Czechoslovakiaa

					back to the secondary target in Italy. En route to the secondary target, the navigator 
					of the group lead plane was wounded by flak and the group lead commander, 
					new to the group, apparently took over the navigator duties. He changed course and 
					led the group over known anti-aircraft batteries. The bomber received two direct 
					flak hits in the ball turret and bomb bay over the Initial Point at 20,000ft. 
					It left the formation and exploded before the crew could bail out. 
					The blast blew the crew members in the front out of the nose; the tail gunner 
					escaped from the tail section which had broken away. Both wings came off 
					before the plane crashed into a mountain of the South Tyrol near Brixen, Italy. {1 mission}. 
					The co-pilot had been blown out without his parachute. Freefalling amongst the debris, 
					he was struck in the chest by a loose parachute pack. He grabbed it, hooked it on and 
					released the chute in time. The navigator had been trying to open the forward escape 
					hatch when the bomber exploded. He was ejected with his parachute strapped on but was 
					unconscious until just before reaching the ground. He pulled the ripcord but hit the 
					ground before deployment. He landed in a few feet of snow but the mountain 
					sloped away about 45 degrees and he slid down about 100 yards, 
					dropped off a four-foot ledge and rolled before stopping, injured but alive; 
					he was captured and taken POW. The pilot, who was taken POW, was 
					on his final combat mission at the end of his tour.  MACR 10930

					The primary target was not attacked because of cloud cover and PFF failure. 
					Diverted to the secondary target, an oil refinery at Kolin, Czechoslovakia. 
					The plane was struck by two bursts of flak on the bomb run. 
					As the formation rallied right, the airplane took four more direct hits of flak. 
					Aileron controls were shot out, fire erupted back of engine number one, 
					and the oxygen system quit functioning. The pilot alerted the crew to possible 
					bail out and was able to set up the autopilot. He thought that he might be able to 
					reach the Russian lines, but the fire in the right wing rapidly increased in 
					intensity, so he ordered the crew to bail out. They were at about 19,000ft, 
					and all got out safely. The pilot, who was last, had some difficulty. 
					His foot became stuck back of the control stick as the airplane had a tendency 
					to climb. He managed to extricate himself, but when he released the controls, 
					the airplane started a steep, climbing turn to the left. The force of the manoeuvre 
					pinned him to the airplane. Again he managed to get free and went out through the 
					nose hatch. The crew had bailed out over the German-Russian front near Muskau, 
					south of Cottbus, Germany. The plane exploded and crashed in 
				       Prussia behind Russian lines east of Cottbus            MACR 12821.
