As I mentioned in yesterday's post, my father flew his third mission on February 19, 1945, when his plane was hit by flak and he made an emergency landing in Belgium. After he and his crew were flown back to England they were given flak leave and did not fly again until March 1st and 2nd. I'll be busy on those dates this year telling the story of those missions and the aftermath. With ten day's to go before his final mission, this might be a good time to show my pictorial tribute to him, with a little help from Benny Goodman and Glenn Miller. Many thanks to my step-son Joah McGee for his tech support.
