Info Contributor - Bill Whitney
This aircraft originally carried the name NORTHERN STAR on both sides of the nose. In the spring of 1943, the name DOC replaced the port (left) side NORTHERN STAR to comply with a "Snow White Squadron" directive. NORTHERN STAR/DOC was a participant in the low level Ploesti mission of 1 Aug 43, flown by the Glen Underwood crew. The ship was operational until 30 Nov 43.
