Info Contributor - Mark Coffee

Original Brunning ship that flew at least 40 missions and had 3 fighters credited. Her flying characteristics became dangerous, and after repeated complaints by various pilots, she was sent to the Goioa maintenance depot. It was found that combat damage, and a lodged bullet in the wing root, had weakened the spar and allowed the wing to torque.

Delivered to the 449th BG 22 Oct 43. Sent to the 15th AF Depot for major repair, then allocated to another Bomb Group. Survived the war and was savaged 3 Jun 45.
