Info Contributor - Georges "Gino" Künzle
Transferred from 492nd BG. Received by 44th BG between 15 Aug & 1 Sep 44. Crash-landed at Veltem or Heultje, near Westerlo, about 25 miles north east of Brussels - ran into mechanical trouble and left the formation, heading for Brussels. Due to poor visibility, missed the field and, running short of fuel, salvoed its bombs. The blast blew out the windows in the plane and damaged the elevator. The pilot tried to land in a grassy meadow but the landing gear collapsed and split the plane, rendering it a complete washout.
