					Over the target this aircraft and two others were attacked by Japanese Mitsubishi A6M Zero fighters. 
					During a firing pass, one of the Zeros attacked from below and hit the fuselage causing a fire to 
					ignite inside the plane that extended out the waist windows and tail. Damaged, the aircraft 
					released its bombs on the target and seven crew were observed to bail out. Of the seven that bailed 
					out, one fell out of his parachute harness and fell to his death; the other six parachutes deployed 
					successfully but were strafed unmercifully by ‘clipped wing’ [A6M3] Zeros. With the pilots still at the 
					controls, at 1,000 feet the tail of the B-17 wrenched off and floated downward. The rest of the
					bomber exploded and disintegrated just before it crashed into the sea; a few moments later it sank 
					beneath the waves. Named KA-PUHIO-WELA (Hawaiian for ‘double trouble’) / DOUBLE TROUBLE.

					Jackson Field (7 Mile Drome), Port Moresby, New Guinea on a mission against a Japanese 
					convoy bound for Lae, New Guinea 6Jan43 (6MIA:3INJ). The bomber had two bomb bay fuel 
					tanks for extended range plus thirty flares to shadow the convoy and drop flares to assist 
					with a possible night attack against the convoy. Flying alone at 10,000 feet, the crew located 
					the convoy before dark, spotting the ships and escorting fighters, but they didn’t fly up to 
					challenge them. Near the end of their patrol, the crew attempted to contact the squadron to
					learn if another bomber would replace them, but had radio problems. The bomber continued 
					to shadow the convoy until early morning 7Jan43. Turning back for base, the bomber 
					encountered bad weather over the Owen Stanley mountains. The pilot was forced to make 
					repeated attempts to cross the mountains and climbed to 29,000 feet but was unable to 
					locate Port Moresby. Out of fuel, the plane ditched into the Gulf of Papua roughly thirty 
					miles off the southern coast of New Guinea. During the ditching, six of the crew went missing. 
					The three surviving crew were badly injured but managed to deploy a life raft. Later that same 
					day, a RAAF Anson from No.1 Communication Unit spotted the survivors and reported their 
					position. A Short Empire flying boat overflew the three men, spotted the life raft and reported 
					the downed crew. Thirteen hours after the crash, a boat rescued the three surviving crew

					for more than eleven hours. During that time the plane was struck by anti-aircraft fire and hit 
					repeatedly in attacks by enemy fighters but survived to return to Port Moresby. Took off from 
					Jackson Field on a reconnaissance/administrative flight to Merauke, New Guinea and Horn 
					Island, QLD, Australia 26Mar43 (12MIA). The pilot was Brigadier General Howard K. Ramey;
					aboard were passengers from Headquarters, Fifth Bomber Command. Twenty minutes after 
					takeoff, the radio operator checked in with the ground station; there was no further 
					communication with the aircraft. After the loss, General Douglas MacArthur was concerned 
					that Brigadier General Ramey might have fallen into Japanese hands but there was no
				 	evidence that a Japanese aircraft intercepted this B-17 or that any of the crew became

					29Oct42. Stripped down only the top-turret, ball-turret, one nose gun and a bare minimum of 
					ammunition. Baggage racks and extra seats took all available space. Taxying out for takeoff 5Nov42, 
					the plane developed an hydraulic leak causing a loss of brakes and departure was delayed. 
					Departed to North Africa 6Nov42. This aircraft was part of a group of six B-17´s that departed 
					transporting a group of high ranking American and British officer's via Gibraltar to the opening 
					of Operation Torch, the Allied invasion of French North Africa; took Generals Doolittle and Lemnitzer. 
					En route, the bomber was attacked by four German Ju 88s patrolling over the Bay of Biscay. 
					Since guns were lacking ammunition, the pilot decided to drop down to about 100 feet above the sea. 
					The German planes joined them, two on each side and although the two turret guns were aimed 
					at them, little firing was done, for ammunition was being rationed. Soon the German leader 
					turned and made his pass followed by the others. The co-pilot was wounded by a bullet and 
					General Doolittle, who had never been checked out in a B-17, replaced him. Low on fuel, 
					the enemy returned home before further damage could be done. No.3 engine had been struck 
					by a cannon shell and the propeller feathered. Operation Torch Nov42. 340th Bomb Squadron,

					The aircraft took off just after midnight from Mareeba airfield 13/14Sep42 (9KIA:1KIS). 
					Half way through the takeoff roll the right outboard engine began to misfire and quit. 
					Takeoff speed was too high to abort so the pilot apparently applied full war power to the 
					other engines and appeared to hauled back on the control yoke thus pitching the aircraft into a nose high attitude. 
					The aircraft lifted off but overloaded and under powered flew for 1/4 of a mile off the end of the bomber airstrip 
					then crashed into a woodland and dry creek bed. It caught fire and the bomb load exploded, 
					killing one person on the ground. Assigned to LEFT (Fifth Air Force, Brisbane, Australia).

					Attacked by enemy Bf 109 and Fw 190 fighters. With his guns frozen, the tail gunner was injured when struck by a 20mm cannon shell. 
					Seeing the fighters attacking the tail, the ball turret gunner instructed the pilot to raise the tail but 
					at that moment a cannon shell struck the ball turret, originally aimed at the tail. 
					The shell exploded in the turret, injuring the gunner. The radio operator had also been wounded, 
					the no.3 engine propeller was feathered and the no.1 engine was on fire. 
					As the pilot headed back to Châteaudun, the fire in no.1 engine had extinguished. 
					On approach to land, a tire was found to have been shot out but the plane landed safely 
					then grounded looped when the flat tire touched the runway, bending a couple of propellers.

					Badly damaged on a mission to the port at La Goulette, Tunis, Tunisia 1Feb43. 
					The ‘All American’ was part of a formation of bombers attacking the German-controlled seaport. 
					The bomber was hit by an out of control Bf 109 almost slicing off the rear fuselage and 
					tailplane but made it back to Biskra and repaired. 
					When they were returning home, about 50km west of Tunis, 
					two German Bf 109 fighters attacked together from the formation’s right front, 
					as the bombers left the target area. 
					One went after the lead ship, ‘Flaming Mayme’ [41-24477], and sent that bomber 
					down smoking; the second attacked ‘All American’. 
					As this one rolled to dive below and behind the B-17, defensive fire killed or 
					at least wounded the pilot, a 16-victory ace, Feldwebel Erich Paczia (VI/JG 53). 
					The fighter passed over ‘All American’, tore a significant slash in the rear of the fuselage 
					and removed the left horizontal stabiliser. 
					The bomber lurched upward, but the pilots found that they could use their 
					throttles to manage the pitch. The remaining parts of the tail section, 
					the vertical and right stabiliser seemed like they could shake loose at any moment. 
					Miraculously, none of the B-17?s crew was injured and the men all donned their parachutes,
					ready to abandon the bomber should the tail break off. The other crews in the formation, 
					seeing that the B-17 was crippled, but remaining aloft, slowed to a speed the injured plane 
					could maintain and formed a formation around it until they were out of range from enemy territory. 
					Once the formation was outside of the maximum range for the German fighter planes, 
					the rest of the formation went on ahead and ‘All American’ limped on alone. 
					Before the other B-17s left, Lieutenant Charles “Cliff” Cutforth, navigator of ‘Flying Flit Gun’ (41-24412), 
					took a now-famous photo of the stricken ‘All American’ as it flew home over the desert. 
					It landed safely, though without the tail wheel which was inoperative. 
					The 50th Air Service Squadron took up the challenge and rebuilt the bomber, 
					out in the open desert, over a period of six weeks, using the rear fuselage from another 
					damaged B-17 which was on the salvage heap.

					After several sharp turns, bombs were released on the Combat Wing leader's bombs;

					Tafraoui, Oran, Algeria 22Nov42. Biskra, Algeria 25Dec42. 
					Battle damaged on a mission to the Luftwaffe airfield at Castel Benito, Tripoli, Libya 12Jan43. 
					Over the target an engine was struck by flak. 
					A few minutes later the other engine on that wing failed. 
					Dropping out of formation the bomber was attacked and badly damaged by Macchi 202 
					fighters of 4º Stormo, Regia Aeronautica Italiana. 
					It was being protected by P-38 Lightnings but they had to turn away for home. 
					Fortunately, soon the enemy fighters also turned back to their base. 
					Still some four hundred miles from Biskra, nearly out of ammunition and without a radio, 
					the plane was losing altitude. The crew was offered the chance to bail out but elected to stay 
					as long as the plane could still fly. By now down to 900 feet, it was too low to clear the 
					mountain ranges ahead so the pilot turned to follow the coast. 
					The plane started to gain altitude sufficient for it to skim across a mountain pass. 
					The plane was flying with a wing down, threatening to roll over or touch the ground. 
					With a headwind and a dwindling supply of fuel, the bomber was now forty miles from Biskra. 
					Having been given up as lost in action, it was now dusk when the crew shot a red flare 
					and, a short time later, received a green flare from the Biskra controllers. 
					The pilot landed with no brakes and ground looped the plane when he ran out of runway. 
					It spun around five times and then rolled backwards for fifty yards before it stopped. 
					The flight was reported by War Correspondent Ernie Pyle and may have inspired the 
					song ‘Comin’ In on a Wing and a Prayer’, first performed by The Song Spinners [but see 41-24617]. 
					Châteaudun-du-Rhumel (Helen), Constantine, Algeria 8Feb43. 
					Battle damaged on a mission to the ferry terminal and railway marshalling yards at 
					Messina, Sicily 18Jun43. 
					No.3 and 4 engines quit for unknown reasons, possibly flak, as the bomb bay doors 
					were opened approaching the target. The bombs were jettisoned and as the plane 
					lost altitude, enemy fighters came in to attack. 
					The pilot dived down to increase speed and skimmed along the surface of the sea. 
					The enemy fighters continued their attacks for some time until their fuel was running low. 
					The bomber crew jettisoned excess weight to allow the plane to climb enough to cross Sicily 
					and head for Pantelleria Island. 
					The Twelfth Air Force had been pounding the airfield on Pantelleria until a few days 
					previously but, conveniently, their bombs fell wide enough to retain a usable landing strip. 
					The plane force landed safely at Margana airfield, Pantelleria Island, Sicily. 
					That night the crew slept in a cave and dined with members of an engineering detachment. 
					The following morning, aided by truck and diesel mechanics they got all four engines running. 
					The navigator calculated the amount of gasoline needed to get them to Tunis and borrowed 
					same from the engineers. The men climbed aboard and started the engines. 
					They were halfway down the runway when engine no.3 quit. 
					The speed necessary for takeoff was lacking and the port engines were reduced in power to 
					keep from pulling the Fort off the runway. 
					At the end of the runway was a steep drop of several hundred feet. 
					By skilful handling the nose was headed downwards giving them the speed to stay airborne. 
					Tunis was but another hour away. Assigned to GLEN (Twelfth Air Force, Oran, Algeria) 19Jun43.

					ceiling, Fw 190's and flak wounded the navigator and shot away one engine, the ball turret, 
					the top turret, the intercom system and the elevator controls. The bombardier jettisoned the 
					bombs and bailed out over land. The plane ditched in the Bay of Biscay ten miles from 
					the French shore and remained afloat for thirty seconds, giving the crew time to escape. 
					The half-inflated large dinghy supported all of the crew except the engineer who sat in his
					own small dinghy. The crew was picked up by a French fishing boat and turned over to the 
					Germans at Quimper, France.   POW Ewart Sconiers suffered an accident in Stalag Luft 3
					and died in hospital Jan 29, 1944 and was buried 3 days later.  Two months before he was taken prisoner, 
					Sconiers made headlines around the world for his actions in an Aug. 21, 1942 bombing raid over The 
					Netherlands. A German fighter plane attacked the B-17 in which he serving as bombardier, and a 
					shell that hit the cockpit killed the co-pilot and severely injured the pilot. Sconiers, called 
					to the cockpit by the pilot, pulled the co-pilot out of his seat and took the controls of the 
					stricken bomber. With coaching from the pilot, Sconiers landed the plane safely at the air base 
					in the English village of Horsham St. Faith. He was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross for his heroics.
					U.S. military officials had initally concluded Sconiers had been buried in a mass grave in Lubin. 
					The military’s Graves Registration Service had all but abandoned any search for him by 1948 as Russian 
					influence closed off eastern Europe. But ongoing work by the Department of Defense POW/MIA Accounting 
					Agency, members of the Sconiers family and other people who became known informally as “Ewart’s Army” 
					traced him to the French section of a cemetery in Gdansk, Poland.  American officials pursued the lead, and 
					after working with Polish and French officials, they were able to bring his remains back to the United States
					in January of 2018.

					Battle damaged during a mission to the Luftwaffe fighter airfield at Abbeville, France 8Nov42 (2WIA). 
					After the target, fourteen Bf 109 fighters attacked the formation. 
					Later, shrapnel from 88mm anti-aircraft shells broke the window in front of the plane and 
					punctured the no.1 fuel tank. 
					Picking out the damaged bomber, three Focke-Wulf Fw 190s pressed their own attack 
					and hit all four of the B-17’s propellers and both wings. 
					Additional damage was inflicted by a 20mm cannon shell that penetrated the no.4 engine 
					cowling and a second shell that exploded in the rear of the fuselage and hit the VHF radio transmitter. 
					Also destroyed were the elevator control and auxiliary cables as well as the oxygen line to the 
					radio compartment. 
					Nevertheless, the pilot brought his aircraft and its crew back to base with only two wounded crew members. 
					Battle damaged during a mission to Romilly-sur-Seine airfield, France 20Dec42. 
					Bf 109s and Fw 190s fighters began harassing the bomber stream thirty-five miles inland from the French coast. 
					The attacks continued up to the target and on the return. During one of those attacks a 20mm shell 
					exploded in the cockpit, and another badly damaged the no.4 engine. 
					Subsequent attacks left two small holes in the ball turret, one in the left horizontal stabiliser, 
					four in the tail section and one in the tail assembly. Large holes were also blown in the nose 
					and left wing just back of the no.2 engine nacelle, as well as three others in the left wing. 
					None of the crew were wounded during these attacks. 
					Failed to return from a mission to the submarine yards at Lorient, France 30Dec42 (10KIA). 
					Over such an important target, the opposition was intense. 
					Heavy flak tore into the bombers and approximately thirty Fw 190 fighters attacked 
					while over Lorient. The bomber was hit in the no.3 engine just as it cleared the target. 
					Dropping out of formation and heading down, about five minutes after it had been hit 
					two chutes were seen coming from the plane, but seconds later the bomber exploded 
					in a ball of fire and crashed in the Bay of Biscay off Lorient, France.

					The aircraft took off from Henderson Field on Guadalcanal for a reconnaissance mission 
					over Nauru Island 9Feb43 (9WIA). 
					It was intercepted by eight Japanese Mitsubishi A6M Zero fighters and attacked for ten minutes 
					until some of the B-17's guns jammed. 
					The Zeros circled the crippled bomber, raking it with machine gun fire for an hour and a half, 
					wounding all nine of her crew. 
					The bomber had its no.1 engine seized by damage, then a second engine failed. 
					When a third engine failed, it caused the plane to ditch over 450 miles from the nearest island. 
					The B-17 hit a wave, nosed into another and sank within sixty seconds. 
					The crew found themselves in the water, clinging to an inflated life boat and pumping another 
					and managed to tie the two boats together and drifted away from the oil slick from the sunken bomber. 
					The crew spent sixteen days in a life raft, until making landfall on an island off Buka, 
					Bougainville, New Guinea. Spotted by friendly natives, the crew was divided among several villages. 
					In an attempt to move closer to the Allied lines, the group tried to buy a canoe from locals, 
					but it failed to be seaworthy with only four loaded aboard. 
					Later, they hired another native and his canoe to sail down the coast for four days and 
					met another group of natives, who had been sent by a pair of coast-watchers to find them. 
					Escorted over a jungle trail to the coast-watcher's mountain observation post, 
					where they met the coast-watchers and arranged their rescue by radio. 
					More than fifty days after their ditching, a rescue PBY Catalina piloted from VP-44, 
					escorted by two PB4Y-1 Liberators from VB-101 carried out a search. 
					The group in an outrigger was spotted and the PBY landed to rescue them, and 
					then planned the rescue of the remaining airmen.

					protect the gunner 25Feb43. {first combat mission 26Feb43}. 
					Failed to return from a mission to the railway marshalling yards at Hamm, Germany 4Mar43 (3KIA:7RMC). 
					The weather was bad from takeoff through to Germany preventing four other groups rendezvousing 
					with the 91st Bomb Group which proceeded alone to the target. 
					Sixteen planes faced the toughest fighter defence of the war, the heaviest flak areas, 
					and on the deepest penetration yet into Germany. The reception was immediate with German fighters 
					determined to stop the attack; the return flight home was no easier, flying into the wind of a 
					strong jet stream. About ten minutes after going in over Texel, Germany, the radio gunner 
					was wounded. The pilot turned off after the target run and then the plane was struck by 
					several fighter cannon shells in both wings; gasoline was pouring out of the wings. 
					No.1 and no.4 engines were hit; the no.1 engine continued to run and finally it set up a terrific 
					vibration, which seemed as though it would shake off the whole wing, before the engine
					finally stopped. No.4 engine oversped and finally stopped. The plane fell back from the 
					formation and, back over Texel, the right waist gunner received wounds from fragments 
					from a 20mm cannon shell. The bomber had been attacked by Lt. Oskar Köstler of the 10./NJG 1, 
					flying a Bf 110 fighter. Crossing the coast, no.3 engine was damaged and began losing oil. 
					By now the plane was flying about fifty feet above the water and the crew was preparing to ditch. 
					Upon impact the plane must have struck a wave head-on. 
					The bombardier went right through the radio room bulkhead and immediately into the water. 
					There was a ten foot gap in the bomb bay as both wings were broken off and the ball turret 
					had been pushed up into the fuselage. 
					The nose of the plane was slowly going down as the two pilot swam away to prevent being 
					sucked down; unable to reach a dinghy, they drowned in the waves. 
					The tail section was standing up, struck and fatally wounded the ball turret gunner as it sank. 
					The plane had ditched in the North Sea forty miles west of Texel, West Frisian Islands, Netherlands. 
					Seven crew members were rescued twelve hours later by a Royal Navy minesweeper and landed 
					at Grimsby, England. {2 missions}.

					(3KIA:6POW:1EVD). Shortly after crossing the Belgian coast en route to the target, flak 
					struck the propeller dome on no.1 engine. The feathering mechanism was destroyed 
					and the propeller oversped. The no.4 engine was struck by flak of the Flak Abteilung 295 over 
					the target and the plane could not keep up with the formation. 
					Subsequently attacked by German fighters, claimed by Oblt Otto Stammberger of 4/JG 26. 
					By this time the navigator and top turret gunner had been killed. 
					When the no.4 engine caught fire, the crew was ordered to bail out.

					(1MIA:9POW). 
					Damaged no.3 engine which oversped and caught fire. 
					The fire was extinguished but the propeller shaft sheared which prevented the propeller
					 from being feathered. The longitudinal movement of the broken propeller shaft 
					caused severe vibration and prevented the bomb bay doors from being closed. 
					The drag caused a loss of airspeed and the plane dropped out of formation. T

					Battle damaged on a mission to the torpedo store of the submarine base at Saint-Nazaire, France 3Jan43 
					(3WIA:7RMC). 
					West of Nantes, France, the anti-aircraft fire was strong; south of the Loire the fire of the 
					battery of Château Bougon, Couffé, was very heavy, and a strong defence was encountered 
					in the region of Paimboeuf. Strong head winds slowed the advance of the formation 
					during the last part of the flight. German fighters quickly intercepted the formation, 
					attacking first the bombers damaged by anti-aircraft fire. 
					As the last bomb was released, the bomber was hit by flak on the right wing. 
					Two large flak fragments struck the right wing; one fragment severed the oil line 
					on no.4 engine, which caught on fire and unable to feather the propeller while no.3 
					engine was malfunctioning. 
					Unable to keep up, the plane fell out of formation, and Luftwaffe fighters immediately descended upon it. 
					The battle was intense, and a frontal attack left the pilot, bombardier and navigator injured. 
					The crew was nearly defeated, but their luck turned as the engine fire was extinguished. 
					As they worked their way back to England, the Fortress was flying on just two engines. 
					It fell further behind the formation until the crew lost sight of it. 
					With a ditching imminent, the pilot flew the plane close to the water 
					while the men threw out anything they could to lighten the load. 
					The crew was lost; the radio operator sent out his SOS repeatedly until British Air-Sea Rescue picked it up. 
					He was given the heading to the RAF coastal airfield of St. Eval, Padstow, Cornwall. 
					By the time it approached the base, the plane was operating on only one engine. 
					Peppered with holes and lacking brakes, it landed and ground looped. 
					Badly damaged, it didn’t fly again; it was salvaged after that mission. {4 missions}.

					Serious battle damage on a mission to the submarine yards at Lorient, France 30Dec42. 
					Over such an important target, the opposition was intense.

					By the end of November 1943, there was little left of the original plane. 
					As a result of battle damage repairs, all that was left was the left wing, vertical stabiliser 
					and parts of the main fuselage. ‘Tokyo’ long-range fuel tanks and nose guns had been installed. 
					Battle damaged during a mission to the port area at Bremen, Germany 20Dec43 (1WIA). 
					Flak over the target was heavy and accurate damaging the ball turret and wounding the gunner. 
					Accident returning from a mission to the Luftwaffe air depot at Mérignac, Bordeaux, France 31Dec43 (10RMC). 
					On return with fuel exhaustion, the plane force landed at a RAF night fighter airfield on the 
					south coast of England. It landed with only one engine operating, the other three having failed 
					on approach; the fourth engine failed as the plane touched down on the runway. 
					Refuelled and headed for Bassingbourn, thick fog prevented the pilot from seeing the airfield. 
					He was diverted to Great Dunmow (Station 164), Essex, then to Andrewsfield (Station 485), Essex

					German heartland. In addition, a large force of German fighters launched vicious attacks 
					against the planes. Over the target, the formation encountered intense flak. A gunner was 
					wounded by flak. Battle damaged on a Crossbow mission to a German V-weapon site at Andres
					in the Pas-de-Calais, France 24Dec43. Flak over the target was heavy and accurate. Failed to return 
					from a mission to the Junkers Flugzeugwerke aircraft factory at Aschersleben, Germany 22Feb44 (1KIA:9POW). 
					On the way to the target, the formation met with the 381st Bomb Group. Since these planes were 
					late following the main formation, no escort was available. Heavy cloud cover over the target 
					forced the formation to divert to the industrial area of Bünde, Germany. The bomber formation 
					was exposed to the attack of German fighters for over forty minutes without interruption, most of 
					which were Fw 190s. Two Bf 109s damaged engine No.2, the bomber dropped back aiming for 
					cloud cover but more enemy aircraft knocked out two more engines. The aircraft crashed at

					Sustained battle damage on a mission to the submarine yards at Saint-Nazaire, France 17Nov42 
					(1KIA:3WIA:6RMC). 
					The aircraft received severe damage from German Fw 190 fighters, killing the engineer/top turret 
					gunner and wounding three others. 
					Cannon shells had ripped large areas of fabric off the elevators making the plane difficult to control. 
					More shells struck the left and right wings creating large holes and another burst in the radio room 
					setting the insulation alight. 
					The no.2 engine was damaged and vibrating badly and the no.3 engine was leaking fuel. 
					Members of the crew managed to extinguish the radio room fire. 
					The rudder control cables had been cut but the pilot managed to fly the damaged aircraft back to England,

					At the target flak was intense and accurate. 
					Battle damaged during a mission to the Kriegsmarinewerft Kiel shipyard at Kiel, Germany 29Jul43. 
					Flak was intense and accurate at the target; meagre but accurate from Flensburg; meagre and

 					There was large enemy fighter opposition but did not press home their attacks. 
					Damaged by enemy fighters and flak. 
					Battle damaged on a mission to the Gerhard Fieseler Werke (GFW) aircraft works at 
					Waldau, Kassel, Germany 30Jul43. 
					At the target flak was accurate and intense; there was large enemy fighter opposition 
					en route to and returning from target. 
					Accident on a mission to the synthetic oil refinery at Gelsenkirchen, Germany 12Aug43 (1INJ:9RMC).
					 En route to the target, the ball turret gunner was seriously injured as result of part of an engine 
					supercharger breaking loose and striking him in the head. 
					No.2 and no.4 superchargers failed to function properly so the pilot aborted the mission.
					Battle damaged on a mission to the ball bearing factories at Schweinfurt, Germany 17Aug43. 
					The formation was subject to continuous fighter attacks from the time it crossed over the enemy coast. 
					In addition, the bombers were hit by flak as they passed over anti-aircraft defence zones. 
					After the target, and before the formation could rendezvous with a P-47 Thunderbolt escort home, 
					the squadron was subjected to further and continuous fighter attacks for about ninety minutes. 
					Battle damaged during a mission to the air depot at Villacoublay, Paris, France 24Aug43.
 					Struck by flak and damaged in an attack by enemy fighters. 
					Failed to return from a mission to industrial targets at Stuttgart, Germany 6Sep43 (10RMC). 
					From the Initial Point until leaving the target area, there was a complete undercast except 
					for small sparse patches of farm land. 
					This group went over the target area twice without dropping their bombs. 
					Bombs were finally dropped on Achern, a small town 18km southwest of Baden-Baden, Germany. 
					Having spent too long over the target, the formation was beginning to realise that fuel exhaustion 
					would likely lead to many not being able to return to base. 
					The pilot started to have red lights showing on his fuel tanks as the plane crossed occupied France. 
					He put the bomber into a long, slow glide from high altitude and did not let down from the 
					designated altitude, thus violating the flight plan of the mission. 
					The entire 91st Bomb Group adopted this policy in order to get as far home as possible before 			
					ditching. The crew threw everything overboard so they could lighten the load, such as flak jackets
					and.50 cal guns. The bombardier threw the bomb site into the English Channel trying to gain a few more yards.
					The plane struck the sea a mile or so off the coast of Bexhill on Sea, West Sussex. 
					The pilot put the B-17 down in the swell and the entire crew clambered into the dinghies. 
					One inflated and one did not, only partially filling with air. 
					The five members aboard the second dinghy were in a real plight, with the tail gunner just 
					out of the hospital the previous day suffering from hypothermia. 
					They put him aboard the dinghy while the other four guys held onto the side, treading water. 
					The dinghy that popped out onto the other wing, fully inflated, tried to battle towards them to help 
					but the waves were too strong and the cold September waters in the English Channel soon 
					began to take their toll on the ailing crew. 
					The British Air-Sea Rescue were so busy that day attending to the crews that ditched further 
					out to sea that no help came to this crew, who were relatively close to the shore line. 
					Then, above the crest of a wave, came two men in a row boat. 
					Two fishermen who had seen the bomber ditch had rowed out from Bexhill to rescue the crew. 
					The B-17 had sunk by now but the crew were on their way to dry land. 
					Someone from the town brought the crew a bottle of scotch that they drunk right on the beach. 
					The B-17 washed up onto shore over the next day or so with the strong currents and tides that 
					are found in that area of the Channel. It was then winched onto the beach, cut up on the spot, 
					and taken away for scrap. {26 missions}. Assigned to SOXO (United Kingdom).

					with the other bomb groups. 
					On a direct route to Saint-Nazaire over land instead of by sea, the five plane formation 
					immediately encountered flak as it crossed the French coast. 
					The Group was unable to bomb because of 10/10 cloud cover and headed back to Bassingbourn. 
					This aircraft was attacked three different times by enemy aircraft, but managed to return to England. 
					However the airfield was fogged in, so the pilot attempted a landing at Bovingdon (Station 112), Hertfordshire. 
					The bomber struck a pylon and crashed in a field near the Black Boy public house, Leavesden, Hertfordshire. 
					Two of the crew were killed outright; three others died of their injuries later.

					(1KIA:6POW:3EVD). 
					From the Initial Point until leaving the target area, there was a complete undercast except for 
					small sparse patches of farm land. 
					This group followed the lead group over the target area twice without dropping their bombs. 
					Bombs were finally dropped on Achern, a small town 18km southwest of Baden-Baden, Germany. 
					Having spent too long over the target, the formation was beginning to realise that fuel exhaustion 
					would likely lead to many not being able to return to base. 
					No.1 engine was not running smoothly but the plane stayed in formation while looking for a target. 
					After that no.3 engine stopped with fuel exhaustion; the propeller was initially feathered then a 
					restart was attempted but the propeller oversped. 
					The supercharger on no.4 engine failed and the plane dropped back from the formation. 
					By the time the bomber had reached the Paris area, enemy fighters attacked and pushed the 
					plane towards a flak area severely damaging the bomber and set it on fire from the bomb bay to the cockpit.

					The radio operator was wounded by flak shrapnel. 
					The plane was struck by 20mm cannon shells and flak, damaging the rudder, wings and horizontal stabiliser. 
					Failed to return from a mission to the I.G. Farben chemical works at Leverkusen, Germany 1Dec43 (1KIA:9POW). 
					Clouds obscured the target so the formation diverted to the secondary target, 
					the Rudolf Rautenbach aero engine casting foundry at Solingen, Germany. 
					The formation received some moderate flak over the Netherlands but it grew more intense as they 
					approached the Ruhr Valley. The fighter escort reached the limit of their range and had to head for home. 
					As soon as they left Luftwaffe came in to attack. 
					On their first pass the fighters put a 20mm cannon shell into the number three engine and on their next pass 
					they apparently hit the batteries in the wing root because the plane lost all electrical power. 
					There was some trouble feathering the propeller. 
					With number three propeller wind milling the plane couldn’t keep up with the formation. 
					Without electrical power the top turret and ball turret were useless. 
					Fortunately, about this time a new fighter escort arrived and two P-47 Thunderbolts 
					took up a position, protecting the bomber from further attacks by the Luftwaffe. 
					The pilot got the propeller on number three engine feathered and jettisoned the bombs 
					while descending to reach the protection of cloud cover below. 
					The plane was receiving radar directed flak. An 88mm shell went right up through the 
					cockpit behind the pilot’s seat and out of the roof right next to the top turret. 
					The number two engine was hit and the oil tank behind it caught on fire. 
					That’s when the pilot ordered the crew to bail out. Nine of the crew managed to bail out

					About one hour after departing Gander, an engine failed and the propeller was feathered.

					The aircraft took off from Jackson Field on a solo photographic reconnaissance mission

					Over Kavieng at an altitude of 16,500 feet the plane began a photographic run and 
					immediately encountered sporadic anti-aircraft fire. 
					Six Japanese Mitsubishi A6M Zero fighters from the 253 Kokutai took off from

					During the Battle of the Bismarck Sea the plane that took off from Jackson Field on a bombing mission
					against Japanese shipping 4Mar43 (3WIA). 
					Finding no targets, but observing wreckage and lifeboats and rafts, the plane dove to low level 
					and strafed the lifeboats and barges for thirty minutes. 
					During the attack, the bomber was intercepted by two Japanese Nakajima Ki-43-I Oscar 
					fighters that made a frontal attack, shattering the nose Plexiglas and wounding the navigator 
					and bombardier with glass fragments; the pilot was also grazed by a bullet on his elbow. 
					The aircraft took off from Jackson Field on an armed reconnaissance mission to Madang and Saidor 
					on the northern coast of New Guinea 8May43 (10MIA). 
					Its last reported position was fifty miles north of Madang when the crew reported Japanese shipping. 
					The B-17 had been spotted by three Nakajima Ki-43-I Oscar fighters from the 11th Sentai, 1st Chutai 
					escorting the convoy and made at least two head on passes against the bomber that caused the engines 
					to smoke. Though damaged, the B-17 headed for some of the clouds and rain squalls in the area. 
					Unwilling to let the B-17 escape, one enemy aircraft commenced a head-on attack and the bomber 
					was intentionally rammed by Ki-43 Oscar pilot Tadao Oda who was killed in the ramming attack

					on a low-altitude mission to skip-bomb targets off Rabaul, New Britain 2Oct42. 
					Battle damaged by anti-aircraft fire but without injury to the crew. The aircraft took 
					off on a mission against Japanese destroyers in Huon Gulf, New Guinea 24Nov42 (3WIA). 
					Over the ships, the pilot performed a skip bombing attack from 200 feet with bombs 
					impacting off the stern of the destroyer Hayashio. 
					Anti-aircraft fire hit the tail gunner’s ammunition box on board the bomber and started 
					a fire in the tail section that was successfully extinguished. 
					On the second bomb run the B-17 was hit again and three crew were injured. 
					On the third run the left outboard engine was hit, the propeller did not feather 
					and controls were damaged. 
					The pilot made two more attacks from higher altitude and the right outboard engine failed 
					caused by a hit in the fuel system. 
					Out of bombs, the plane departed for home. 
					On the return flight the damaged left engine's propeller broke and spun off. 
					Losing altitude, the crew jettisoned all equipment possible and managed to 
					restart the right engine and climb over the Owen Stanley mountains back to Port Moresby.
					 Later that night, RAAF Beaufort crews reported a destroyer sinking. 
					During the B-17 attacks, the destroyer Hayashio was hit and later scuttled by the Japanese.

					Took off from Jackson Field on a night mission to Simpson Harbor, Rabaul, New Britain 14/15Feb43. 
					Pulling out after the bomb run, it was caught by searchlights and experienced intense anti-aircraft fire. 
					A shell went through the no.3 engine supercharger and up through the nacelle, damaging oil lines and control cables. 
					Feathering the propeller, the pilot continued round for another bomb run. 
					Returning to base, the no.2 engine supercharger failed but managed to return safely to Jackson Field on two engines. 
					The aircraft took off from Jackson Field about midnight on a mission against a Japanese airfield at 
					Vunakanau near Rabaul, New Britain 10/11Jul43 (3WIA:7RMC). 
					During the flight, problems developed with the right wing's no.3 and no.4 engines but the bombs 
					were successfully dropped over the target. Returning, the bomber was caught in a violent storm, 
					with the two engines on the right wing malfunctioning, the pilots could not hold a straight course, 
					got lost and ran low on fuel. Since the co-pilot had previously ditched a B-17, the pilot handed the 
					controls over to him. 
					The B-17 ditched off Kakau and the Makau Mission near Boga Boga off Cape Vogel, New Guinea. 
					During the ditching, three of the crew were injured. 
					The entire crew escaped the aircraft, deployed their life rafts and were aided ashore by friendly 
					villagers who gave them food and shelter in their village. 
					The B-17 settled into 45m of water, off a coral reef, narrowly missing deeper water where it might
					never have been found. The nose compartment was crushed from either the landing, or impacting 
					the bottom when it sank. 
					Named BLACK JACK / THE JOKER'S WILD. Because the serial number ended in 121’, the right side 
					of the nose had the nose art of two playing cards: Jack and Ace making 21 in blackjack.

					 He added to the nose art, adding ‘The Joker's Wild’ to the left side of the nose. 
					The wreck was discovered by scuba divers 27Dec86. 
					Nearly intact, the nose is torn and crumpled from impacting the sea floor nose first. 
					Aside from the two waist guns and radio transmitters, jettisoned prior to ditching, all other weapons and gear were still aboard

					to the railway marshalling yards at Hamm, Germany 4Feb43. Cloud cover prevented bombing of the 
					primary target at Hamm and the formation diverted to the industrial area of Emden, Germany. Attacked by 
					enemy fighters, a 20mm cannon shell hit right behind the top turret. Another 20mm blew up in the No.3 engine 
					nacelle. No.1 engine supercharger was hit and lost all the oil out of the supercharger tank. No.2 engine 
					was hit tearing a big hole in the induction system resulting in considerable loss of power. A little over 
					half way back to England the pilot had to drop down to less than 3,000ft to maintain airspeed. He tried to 
					feather No.2 propeller but it would not feather. So he started it again and did get some power from it. 
					By that time he wasn’t getting full power from any of the engines but No.1 was the best. Had to go on 
					instruments for about an hour through cloud and a snow storm. The wings started to ice up and the 
					controls and instruments in the cockpit and the nose iced up. Then the inter-phone went out. The plane 
					finally broke through the clouds over England at about 3,000 feet. Arriving back at base the right 
					landing gear wouldn’t go down and the pilot had to circle the airfield twice while it was cranked down 
					manually. When it landed, No.1 engine was the only one left to taxy with so the plane had to be towed 
					in from the end of the runway. There were scattered flak strikes in the tail, wings and fuselage. The spars 
					in both wings were damaged. Eighth Air Force Service Command. Regained by Group 28Mar43.

					Field (Cactus), Guadalcanal, Solomon Islands 3Oct42; joined four other B-17s from the 26th Bomb 
					Squadron, 11th Bomb Group for a mission the following day. Took off from Henderson Field leading 
					the formation armed with twenty 100 pound bombs on a mission against a Japanese airfield at 
					Buka, Bougainville, New Guinea 4Oct42. Inbound to the target, the formation encountered bad weather, 
					could not find the target and turned back for Guadalcanal. Off New Georgia, the bombers 
					encountered six Japanese warships including Japanese destroyers Nowaki, Maikaze, Akitsuki, 
					Nisshin and Chitose. The B-17s were intercepted by Japanese floatplanes flying combat air 
					patrol over the fleet. During the combat, the No.3 engine was damaged and disabled. Took off 
					from Henderson Field (Cactus), Guadalcanal, Solomon Islands leading a mission against 
					shipping at Tonolei Harbor off southern Bougainville 18Nov42 (1MIA:1KIA:2WIA:6RTD). Over 
					the target, the Bombardier was unable to release the bombs so the formation started to circle 
					around for another bomb run. Appearing to head for home, the P-38 Lightning escort fighters 
					departed to chase some Japanese fighters. On the second bomb run, anti-aircraft fire was heavy 
					and nearly accurate. Just as the bomber was to drop its bombs, it was intercepted by Japanese 
					fighters. Twice the B-17 was attacked by fighters making head-on firing passes, concentrating on 
					the bomber's nose. Again, the bombs wouldn’t release. The enemy fighters continued their attacks 
					as the bomber headed home. The attacks ripped up the nose section, wounding the bombardier, 
					and injuring both pilots. Another attack killed the pilot and mortally wounded the co-pilot. 
					A Colonel observer took over the controls to fly the plane home. Damaged during the attacks, 
					the No.2 propeller was feathered and No.1 engine was overspeeding and smoking; No.2 fuel tank 
					was on fire. The ball and upper turrets were damaged and few guns were still working. With 
					what instruments were still working, the plane was noted in a spin. The Colonel pilot was 
					reluctant to open the bomb bay doors to jettison the bombs for fear that the bomber would stall. 
					Flying from the right side, the Colonel was unable to move the dead pilot out of the way to access 
					the trim tab controls. The crippled bomber was escorted by the other B-17s away from the target 
					and was losing altitude but able to fly on only two engines. Having escaped the Japanese fighters 
					by flying into cloud, coming out the other side found the bomber at just 500 feet above the sea 
					and the pilot had little choice but to ditch in the sea. The plane was ditched off Baga Island (Mbava), 
					Solomon Islands near Vella Lavella and broke in two before sinking. The crew successfully 
					deployed their life rafts, reached the beach of an island and were rescued the following day 
					by a US Navy PBY.  Assigned to LEFT (Fifth Air Force, Brisbane, Australia). Condemned 14Jul43. SOC 3May44

					Northamptonshire 11Dec42. Battle damaged during a mission to the submarine pens at Lorient,
					France 30Dec42 (1KIA:1WIA). During the mission, visibility was excellent and the crew saw their 
					target some time before the bombing run. Over the intercom the crew heard the bombardier 
					call ‘bombs away’. At almost the same moment heavy flak tore up through the nose of the Fortress 
					and enemy fighters dove in to attack. The bomber was knocked out of the formation. In the nose, 
					the bombardier was killed. A piece of flak hit the navigator in the arm, passing through his flight 
					jacket and knocking him off his seat. Simultaneously, an explosive shell ripped the bottom out 
					of the ball turret. Blinded by oil and escaping fumes, with his oxygen supply destroyed and his 
					ammunition jammed so tightly against him that he thought his leg was off, the gunner stayed 
					in the turret. In the tail turret the gunner was badly hit. Despite his wounds, the gunner continued 
					to fire his gun, and as one Fw 190 charged in on the tail he shot half of one of its wings off, sending it down. 
					Two minutes earlier a waist gunner had destroyed another enemy aircraft. The fighter attacked from 
					the nose, passing close to the sights of the right waist gun. As the Fortress staggered away from the 
					target more enemy fighters came in, attacking the nose in pairs. The first attack had broken the drive 
					shaft of the No.1 engine. The No.2 engine had been hit on the top cylinder and soon had only a 
					little emergency power left. The propellor would run away when the throttle was advanced a little
					bit. The oil pressure was giving out and flak had put a large dent in one of the propeller blades of 
					the No.3 engine. There was a big hole in the nose, the ball turret was shattered, the bomb bay doors 
					had been shot up by shellfire, the oxygen lines were cut and the de-icing fluid was punctured. 
					The radio equipment was damaged and the control cable had been knocked off the elevator. 
					Despite these handicaps, the pilot kept making for the cover of the clouds, keeping up such skillful 
					evasive action that the enemy fighters were unable to score any more hits. A waist gunner worked the 
					slipping elevator cable back on its pulley. In its effort to keep up with the formation the Fortress 
					was losing altitude at the rate of 2,000ft a minute. At 10,000ft, The engineer/top turret gunner 
					brought down a third enemy fighter in flames. The radio operator had to leave his gun to put 
					out a fire in his radio compartment. The bomber finally ducked away into the temporary safety of 
					the clouds. When it came out again over the English Channel, it was alone, still losing altitude 
					at 2,000ft a minute. All the crew were still at their posts except the bombardier. The crew were 
					looking for land so hard that when they saw some a little off to the right they started right in. 
					They thought it was England and started to look at the roads to see which side the cars were 
					driving on. Then, all of a sudden, they saw the submarine pens they'd bombed before and knew
					it was Brest. By this time the Fortress was down to six hundred feet and still losing altitude. 
					Cutting across to the open channel, the pilot flew directly between two destroyers, neither of 
					which had time to fire.They were now flying on two engines and the pilot was worried about the No.2
				 	propeller which was running away, threatening to wreck the plane. Several times the ball 
					turret bounded on the sea and they hoped the propeller would jar loose. Presently the Captain 
					gave orders to prepare for a crash landing in the sea. Finally they made it. The pilot managed 
					to pull the plane up eight hundred feet and they crossed safely over the English coast, landing 
					soon after at a Royal Air Force airfield in England. Failed to return from a mission to the 
					Chemische Werke synthetic rubber works at Hüls, Marl, Germany 22Jun43 (4KIA:6POW). The 
					aircraft was struck by a flak shell which ignited the right wing. The No.2 engine caught fire 
					and exploded. The aircraft went into a flat spin and crashed at Slijk-Ewijk on River Waal,

					while flying at 17,000ft, it was intercepted by six Japanese Mitsubishi A6M Zero fighters over Cape

					maneuvered out of range of the bomber's guns. Over New Georgia, a seventh unseen Zero dove at the 
					nose and dropped four aerial bombs that were ineffective. The same Zero continued to dive and 
					collided with this B-17 behind the radio compartment and broke the bomber into two pieces. 
					The front half caught fire and all aboard perished. The rear half descended in almost perfect 
					equilibrium, knocking the gunner unconscious briefly. When he awoke, he opened the escape hatch 
					and bailed out around 2,000ft and again blacked out. Awakening again, he slipped out of his 
					parachute a few feet above the sea, landing 150 yards off an island. Two hours later, he met

					Took off from Iron Range on a shuttle mission and landed to refuel at Jackson Field 12Oct42. 
					Departed on a night bombing mission to Tonolei Harbor, southeast Bougainville 13Oct42. 
					Starting the descent for the bomb run, an anti-aircraft shell struck No.4 engine. The pilot 
					feathered the propeller, steadied the plane and dropped two 1,000lb bombs on a ship. 
					Turning for another attack, the plane passed over an airfield and was attacked by more 
					anti-aircraft fire. After dropping two more bombs on another ship, an anti-aircraft shell 
					tore through the Plexiglas nose, creating a hole about two feet in diameter. The air stream 
					rushed in through the nose blowing items around including the crew’s mascot, a small dog 
					named ‘Pluto’ but was unharmed. With the loss of power on a second engine, the pilot 
					turned back for Port Moresby. The plane had to climb to cross the Owen Stanley mountains 
					in a violent storm but made it back to Jackson Field where a third engine quit with fuel 
					exhaustion on landing. Milne Bay, New Guinea 23Nov42. Mareeba, QLD 21Jan43.

					(2WIA:8RTD). Battle damaged on a mission to the Luftwaffe air depot at Romilly-sur-Seine, 
					France 20Dec42 (1WIA:9RTD). Departing to join the formation, the No.3 engine supercharger 
					failed caused by a breakage in the exhaust stack, making it difficult to maintain position 
					in formation. As the Group crossed the coast of France a formation of enemy fighters made 
					a head-on attack. On one of these attacks the bomber was raked with three 0.30 caliber 
					machine gun shells. One went in above the nose and apparently exploded in the control 
					panel, sending up a sheet of flame between the pilots. The second bullet entered the 
					right side of the plane, not more than a few inches from the co-pilot, penetrated five 
					bulkheads, giving a waist gunner a flesh wound, and then the bullet veered out the 
					right side of the plane, just before reaching the tail gunner. The third bullet did little 
					or no damage. Since the main hydraulic line was damaged, the plane would not have 
					brakes on landing, Then pilot made a dead-stick landing on a grass area; it was a 
					very slow, tail-first landing and the pilots scarcely had to touch the emergency brakes 
					to bring the plane to a stop. Battle damaged on a mission to the railway marshalling 
					yards at Hamm, Germany 4Mar43. The weather was bad from takeoff through to Germany 
					preventing four other groups rendezvousing with the 91st Bomb Group which proceeded 
					alone to the target. Sixteen planes faced the toughest fighter defence of the war, the 
					heaviest flak areas, and on the deepest penetration yet into Germany. The reception 
					was immediate with German fighters determined to stop the attack; the return flight home 
					was no easier, flying into the wind of a strong jetstream. Two engines failed, assumed 
					knocked out during the fighter attacks, but back at Bassingbourn it was found that both 
					inboard engines had been hit by 0.50 caliber shells from the tail gunner of the lead ship. 
					Destroyed by fire during maintenance at Bassingbourn 23Mar43. An internal fire probably 
					started by ground crew’s cigarette. {16+ missions}. Salvaged. Possibly 
					named  LUFTWAFFE WATERLOO / MARNITA, made up from the first names of the two

					(1KIA:1WIA:8RTD). Just prior to bombing, flak exploded directly in front of the plane, 
					punched holes in the Plexiglass and mortally wounded the bombardier; a gunner 
					was also wounded. Battle damaged on a mission to the naval yards at Wilhelmshaven, 
					Germany 27Jan43 (1WIA:9RTD). Received a field modification to counter the German 
					tactic of head on attacks; the bomb sight was removed, a twin 0.50caliber gun was

					to the Focke-Wulf aircraft factory at Bremen, Germany 17Apr43. The plane came 
					under intense fighter attack and took several hits through the nose compartment 
					which dotted the aircraft's name with machine gun bullets. Failed to return from 
					a mission to the U-boat base and shipyard at Saint-Nazaire, France 1May43 (5KIA:5POW). 
					On the return route a navigational error took the entire formation at low level 
					over the Brest peninsula where heavy flak fired from navy flak boats fragmented 
					the group. German fighters arrived on the scene, quickly exploited the situation 
					and began concerted attacks. Attacked by Hauptmann Jürgen Hepe of 1./JG 2 
					flying a Fw 190, 20km from l’île de Bréhat and 25km north of Saint Brieuc. The pilot 
					was killed instantly in their first pass as 20mm shells and bullets slammed through 
					the cockpit and exploded inside. The co-pilot on this occasion was a squadron 
					commander from 94th Bomb Group, and he too was hit. The bomber bucked and
					fell out of the formation with No.2 engine on fire and fire consuming the cockpit. 
					The interphone was shot out and it was not possible for the wounded co-pilot 
					to warn the crew of the impending impact as the plane plummeted towards the 
					sea, almost out of control. Just before ditching the right waist gunner was killed 
					by a 20mm cannon shell from the pursuing fighters. The aircraft ditched into 
					15-foot waves in the Celtic Sea about four miles northwest of Brest, France. 
					The plane broke in half near the radio room, came to rest with a snapped wing 
					folded over the fuselage and quickly sank. The crew, including several wounded

					Accident on a recalled mission to the port area of Bremen, Germany 13Nov43 (9KIA:1INJ). 
					The plane had joined formation and reached 10,000ft when it began to vibrate badly but maintained speed. 
					The bombardier had just returned to the radio room after pulling the safety pins from the bombs. 
					Shortly after the plane began to vibrate, it went over sharply on its left wing and then turned abruptly over 
					onto its right wing and went into a tight spin. 
					On fire, the pilot succeeded in pulling the plane out of the spin but as it levelled out it broke in two 
					in the centre of the radio room. The radio operator was the only crew member to survive, 
					having been ejected from the open end of the radio room, the others trapped by centrifugal force.

					The artwork was designed and painted on the right side of the fuselage in late November or early December 1942. 
					VIII Bomber Command Headquarters later issued a directive that squadron and aircraft Ietters would be painted 
					on the side of the fuselage of all bombers. The original artwork was removed to permit the painting of the 
					squadron and aircraft letters (VK*D). The artwork was then repainted on the nose. 
					Following several weeks of suggestions, debates and arguments, and by a vote of the 303rd BG(H) staff and 
					Squadron commanders, the name ‘Hell's Angels’ was adopted by the 303rd Bomb Group (H) on 7Jan44. 
					At that time the numerical designation of bomb groups in England was still on the secret list, and 
					the men of the 303rd wanted a name that was simple, descriptive and appropriate for one of the Eighth Air Force's top organizations.

					Named *Wulf Hound*– artwork of a hound with a broken German fighter in its mouth. {first combat mission 18Nov42}. 
					Failed to return from a mission to the Luftwaffe air depot at Romilly-sur-Seine, France 12Dec42 (4POW:6EVD). 
					Badly damaged in an attack by enemy fighters twenty-five miles east of Paris. 
					The pilot dived out of formation five minutes later and headed back, trailed by five Fw 190 fighters. 
					The bomber started to go down and was last observed going into a cloud formation. 
					After the fighters departed, the pilot continued westerly a short distance, 
					descending to approximately 500 feet. 
					He had to set the plane down because it was no longer airworthy and, at that altitude, 
					if the engines quit, the crew would likely be killed in the crash. 
					Clearing some electrical high tension wires, the pilot made a good wheels-up landing, 
					with the ball turret guns pointing downward, in a hay field in the midst of startled French workers. 
					The crew smashed the radio and IFF equipment, exited the plane, did as much damage to the 
					aircraft as possible, and retired to a nearby copse. The plane had crash landed near Melun, Paris, France. {3 missions}. 
					Assigned to SOXO (United Kingdom). Condemned 12Dec42. SOC 4Nov44.  
					First B-17 captured and flown by the Luftwaffe. 
					The Germans were able to make repairs and put the plane into a flyable condition; the damaged ball turret was not replaced. 
					The aircraft was painted with Luftwaffe Insignia and side code DL+XC, with yellow paint on the under surfaces. 
					Flown to Rechlin for testing at the Luftwaffe Test and Evaluation Center 14Dec42. 
					‘Wulf Hound’ was first flown by the Germans on 17Mar43, followed by more testing and development of fighter tactics 
					against B-17s. Exhibited at the exhibition of trophies at Lärz, Germany 12Jun43. 
					Equipped for glider towing and used in testing the Deutsche Forschungsanstalt für Segelflug (DFS) 230 
					combat transport glider. It was transferred to the Luftwaffe "Kampfgeschwader" KG200 Squadron 
					as A3+AE at Rangesdforf, Germany 11Sep43 and took part in training and highly secretive 
					clandestine missions between May and June 1944. It was known that a captured B-17 was 
					left at the Ordnance and Equipment Depot, Oranienburg, Germany during the last days of the war. 
					The right wing was damaged, also the complete tail section and the plane stood in an oblique 
					position, which meant that the right landing gear was broken. 
					Right behind the damaged tail a small bomb crater is visible. 
					It is believed that the B-17 was damaged during a USAAF raid by, ironically, the 303rd Bomb Group 10Apr45. 
					The Russians had used the airfield since they reached Oranienburg, Germany around 24Apr45. 
					After the war they used it as a bomber base. The Russian base was closed in 1994. 
					The local authorities decided to change the field to a business area and the former main runway 
					was used for a new highway. But before this could happen, the area had to be cleared of all supposed 
					ammunition, scrap and ruins. The first findings of the B-17 were made in the late 1990's. 
					An elevator was found, later noted on an eBay auction. 
					The Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp Memorial received some parts of a B-17 found at the former 
					Oranienburg, Germany airfield.
					 In August 2008, the airfield was being prepared for a new building. 
					Members of the ammunition recovery service were working at the place where all the parts of the B-17 were recovered. 
					Some of the parts were clearly stencilled with the serial number 41-24585

					Battle damaged on a mission to the submarine yards at Pointe de Keroman, Lorient, France 23Jan43. 
					Intense and heavy flak was encountered; a large force of enemy fighters was seen with numerous attacks. 
					The starboard inner engine had failed after being damaged by flak and both wings were damaged by 
					cannon shells from Fw 190 and Bf 109 fighters. On return force landed at RAF Exeter, Devon. 
					Accident landing at Molesworth 25Nov43. 
					Failed to return from a mission to the AGO-Flugzeugwerke Fw 190 manufacturing factory at Oschersleben, 
					Germany 11Jan44 (4KIA:6POW). 
					While the aircraft were airborne, the weather closed in over English bases and a recall signal was issued.
					B/Gen. Robert F. Travis, Air Commander of the 1st Bomb Division, continued on to the target. 
					This left the 1st Bomb Division with greater exposure to enemy fighter attacks. Good fighter support was provided 
					by P-47 Thunderbolts on the penetration and by P-51 Mustangs over the target. P-47s were airborne 
					to provide withdrawal support but they obeyed the recall order to return to England and left the bombers 
					to fend for themselves on the return trip. It proved to be the most disastrous of the 303rd Bomb Group 
					combat missions flown to date. The 303rd lost eleven of the forty B-17s flying the mission. 
					Luftwaffe attacks started over the IJsselmeer and intensified when the American fighters returned home. 
					Meagre and fairly accurate flak was experienced on the bomb run, with intermittent inaccurate flak 
					on the return trip. Attacked by enemy aircraft and crash landed at Lienen, Tecklenburg, Germany. {45 missions}.

					Battle damaged during a mission to the port at Bremen, Germany 26Feb43. 
					The primary target was overcast so the plane diverted to the docks and harbour at Wilhelmshaven, Germany. 
					The plane had been riddled by flak and was severely damaged with a hole four feet square in the rudder. 
					A cannon shell exploded in the nose knocking out the navigator for a few minutes and breaking his table.
					Number three engine had been hit and was spewing out oil and although a fire was extinguished, 
					the propeller could not be feathered. 
					As they approached the shores of Britain, the pilot told his men over the intercom “Those who want to, please pray”. 
					Miraculously, he got the bomber back to its home base and landed it safely, generating news in the USA 
					about the pilot and crew that ‘prayed’ their plane back.

					The mission was a disastrous day for the 2nd Bomb Group; the 49th Bomb Squadron lost all seven of its 
					aircraft to enemy fighters. Attacked by enemy fighters crossing the Alps en route to the target, the left 
					wing was hit and no.2 engine was damaged, reducing its power. The bomb load was jettisoned to 
					save weight and enable the plane to remain in formation. Strips of metal were hanging behind the 
					aileron and wing trailing edge. A horizontal stabiliser had been damaged. The bomber made it over 
					the target but flak damaged the no.3 engine and the bomb bay doors would not close. 
					The drag caused the plane to drop back from formation. Most of the ammunition had been used up, 
					the plane was losing altitude and a 20mm cannon shell struck the upper turret. Enemy fighters appeared again 
					and damaged flight controls then another attack set the bomb bay on fire.

					Participated on a mission to the port at Bremen, Germany 26Feb43.

					A journalist of United Press flew with the crew to report on the mission; his account transformed Walter Cronkite 
					into a world famous correspondent. 
					Battle damaged on a mission to the submarine yards at Kiel, Germany 14May43 (1KIA:9RMC). 
					Attacked by enemy fighters, a cannon shell exploded against the pilot’s seat and killing him. 
					He slumped against the controls and the plane went into a dive so steep that a waist gun fell out of its mount. 
					The co-pilot and engineer regained control and flew the plane back to a safe landing at Molesworth. 
					Failed to return from a mission to the AGO-Flugzeugwerke Fw 190 manufacturing factory at 
					Oschersleben, Germany 11Jan44 (10POW). 
					While the aircraft were airborne, the weather closed in over English bases and a recall signal was issued. 
					B/Gen. Robert F. Travis, Air Commander of the 1st Bomb Division, continued on to the target. 
					This left the 1st Bomb Division with greater exposure to enemy fighter attacks. 
					Good fighter support was provided by P-47 Thunderbolts on the penetration and by P-51 Mustangs 
					over the target. 
					P-47s were airborne to provide withdrawal support but they obeyed the recall order to return to England 
					and left the bombers to fend for themselves on the return trip. 
					It proved to be the most disastrous of the 303rd Bomb Group combat missions flown to date. 
					The 303rd lost eleven of the forty B-17s flying the mission. 
					Luftwaffe attacks started over the IJsselmeer and intensified when the American fighters returned home. 
					Approaching the I.P., enemy fighters attacked and severely damaged the left wing and rudder; 
					the no.1 engine was on fire. 
					Expecting the plane to explode or the wing to drop off, the crew bailed out. 
					The bomber flew on and crashed in woods at Oderhaus, between Bad Lauterberg and Braunlage, Germany.  MACR 1923

					West of Nantes, France, the anti-aircraft fire was strong; south of the Loire the fire of the battery of 
					Château Bougon, Couffé, was very heavy, and a strong defence was encountered in the region of Paimboeuf. 
					Strong head winds slowed the advance of the formation during the last part of the flight.

					The planes were part of a formation on a training mission which had flown to the Mississippi delta

					After leaving the target, the instructor who was flying on the left wing, called and asked the pilot to 
					drop back and let them take the diamond position and to reform on his left wing. 
					Shortly after he made the formation change, the pilot of #031, who was flying right wing in the first echelon,

					Battle damaged on a mission to the Chemische Werke synthetic rubber works at Hüls, Marl, Germany 22Jun43. 
					The formation was only fair and when the lead crew aborted, the formation broke up. 
					Then at 24,000ft in cumulus clouds no.4 engine failed and the propeller oversped. 
					It was feathered and the bombs were jettisoned. 
					The plane stayed in formation until engine no.3 quit and the propeller was feathered. 
					About this time nine enemy fighters were preparing to attack the lone bomber as it turned 
					back towards England. The pilot instructed the crew to prepare to bail out but, after the crew 
					voted to try to go home, the plane was descended. It was then attacked by a lone Bf 109 at about 18,000ft 
					which may have been shot done by the gunners. 
					Down at treetop level the bomber had to run the gauntlet of flak between the islands of 
					Vlieland and Terschelling, and the flak boats in the channel between the islands and mainland. 
					Because of the lack of power on one side and low airspeed, the pilot could only take weak evasive action. 
					The concussion from a close flak burst blew out the right life raft which knocked a large dent 
					in the right horizontal stabilizer. 
					Airspeed was dropping and the plane was losing precious altitude. The crew threw out all 
					of the ammunition but kept the guns. 
					Even though it had only two operating engines the speed and altitude slowly improved because 
					of the decreasing fuel weight. 
					There was enough altitude to fly to home base and landed safely. 
					Battle damaged on a mission to the Luftwaffe air depot at Romilly-sur-Seine, France 3Sep43. 
					Flak cut all the wiring to the tail section and damaged the right horizontal stabiliser.

					Named *The Careful Virgin* – painted by Tony Starcer.
					Battle damaged during a mission to the submarine yards at Lorient, France 30Dec42 (1WIA:9RMC). 
					Over such an important target, the opposition was intense. 
					Heavy flak tore into the bombers and approximately thirty Fw 190 fighters attacked while over Lorient. 
					Attacked by enemy fighters, the bombardier was seriously injured. 
					On the return route strong westerly winds took the formation over the Brest peninsula. 
					Battle damaged on a mission to the railway marshalling yards at Hamm, Germany 4Mar43. 
					The weather was bad from takeoff through to Germany preventing four other groups rendezvousing 
					with the 91st Bomb Group which proceeded alone to the target. 
					Sixteen planes faced the toughest fighter defence of the war, the heaviest flak areas, 
					and on the deepest penetration yet into Germany. The reception was immediate with 
					German fighters determined to stop the attack; the return flight home was no easier, 
					flying into the wind of a strong jet stream. 
					First in group to have Automatic Flight Control Equipment [AFCE] fitted; 
					the device enabled the bombardier to fly the aircraft on the bomb run by linking up with the 
					auto-pilot. {first combat mission with AFCE 18Mar43}. 
					Battle damaged by enemy fighters during a mission to the port area of Emden, Germany 21May43 (2WIA). 
					Battle damaged on a mission to the Gerhard Fieseler Werke (GFW) aircraft works at

					and returning from target. Battle damaged on a mission to the Luftwaffe airfield at Vlissingen, Netherlands 15Aug43. 
					Moderate, accurate flak was experienced over target area. 
					Battle damaged on a mission and landed back without brakes at Bassingbourn Nov43.

					The bomb bay was sealed; the navigator’s seat put in place of the co-pilot’s seat. 
					Base Air Depot No.1, Burtonwood (Station 590), Lancashire.
					Two radio operator AZON control systems were installed and connected with the flight control 
					systems and the autopilot system. A radar altimeter (AN/APN-1) was installed to make it 
					possible to maintain a constant altitude. A television camera was installed in the cockpit 
					making it possible to see the all the flight instruments by the operator in the ‘mother ship’. 
					A second TV camera was placed behind the Plexiglas nose, which allowed the operator
					to guide the drone to its target. Designated BQ-7. 562nd Bomb Squadron, 388th Bomb Group, 
					Knettishall (Station 136), Suffolk, later at Fersfield (Station 554), Norfolk. 
					20,000lbs of Torpex explosives, was installed between the cockpit, the radio operator room 
					and the bomb bay. The bomb bay was reinforced by beams to support the extra weight of Torpex. 
					Expended on Aphrodite mission to the V-3 cannon bunker at Mimoyecques, Pas-de-Calais, France 4Aug44. 
					The control pilot realised that the plane was too high and tried to lower its altitude too quickly. 
					Loaded with ten tons of explosives, the plane crashed and exploded 500 yards short of the target. 
					Assigned to SOXO (United Kingdom). Condemned 4Aug44. .

					25446 (MSN 75-2947) 6th Flying Training Detachment, Thunderbird Field, Glendale, AZ. Force landed after engine failure four miles 
						west of Sacaton, AZ 18Sep42. While on a routine cross country training flight the pilot noticed an excessive amount of
						oil coming, apparently, from the top cylinder head. At that time there was no apparent loss of power since the
						tachometer indicated normal functioning. But later he noticed a steady increase in oil temperature. After the 
						indicator read above the green line he cut the switch and looked for a landing spot. The pilot chose a dirt road 
						and attempted a landing, only to be stopped by a truck traveling very slowly and in the same direction. 
						He turned the switch on again and attempted to make another approach. He could not gain enough 
						altitude, the landing being made out of the last turn, which was very low. The pilot overshot his turn 
						and landed on the edge of the road, rolling approximately 150 feet before hitting a small tree on the left. 
						The aircraft then went into a wash (Arizona term for a ‘roadside ditch’). It nosed down, damaging the propeller,
						two lower wings and the landing gear. The forced landing was caused by failure of the crankshaft ball bearing retainer.

					led the flight to pass over Franklin below 1,000ft in violation of regulations and this aircraft 
					struck a tree, tearing off about 2.5ft of the right wing tip. The pilot left the formation and, 
					finding that the aircraft controls were responding normally, returned to Freeman Field for a 
					successful landing. Crashed after structural failure at Millport Knobs, IN 19Oct43 [1KIS:1INJ]. 
					The student pilots decided to test the airplane to see what its limits were; they climbed to 
					about 10,000ft but decided not to go any higher. The pilot started a normal let-down when the 
					co-pilot took the controls and pushed the airplane into a steeper rate of descent. Unable to 
					take back control, the aircraft steepened into a vertical dive and started to disintegrate. 
					The pilot was thrown clear and landed safely by parachute; the co-pilot perished in the crash 
					and subsequent fire.
