"Tail Shot" - Mid-Air Collision 2 Apr 44, AUS - MACR 4025 - Pilot Edward A. Fetting

Info Contributor - Paul Simeone
On a mission to Steyr, Austria (2 Apr 44, to bomb a parts making plant for Messerschmitt aircraft), 3 A/C were lost at 12:30 P.M., on the return from the target. MISS BEHAVIN (42-52086), was hit by a rocket from a fighter, lost control, and hit SUPERSTITIOUS AL-O-YSIUS (42-52136). A third plane, PEERLESS CLIPPER (41-29216), was hit by debris from both planes. All three went down and all crews were KIA except one member, Mark Schneider (Ball Turret Gunner on MISS BEHAVIN), who survived the fall from 21,000 feet!
