BOMBS AWAY was never in 753rd BS despite what is shown on the MACR (6928) database. It was always in 754th BS, initially as Z5 F (Dispersal # 9 - pilots inter alia: Hopkins and Newell) but towards the end of Jun 44 the call letter was changed to U. The aircraft was interned in Switzerland after landing at Payerne, Vaud canton, 12 Jul 44 with two damaged engines and short of fuel. It was returned to BAD 1, Burtonwood, 1 Oct 45.
