"It Couldn't Be Done" -- So they said but Major Allen Russell, operations chief of the Ferry and Transport Service with U.S.A.A.S.C., confounded experts when he flew the crash-landed Liberator PREGNANT PEG out of a ploughed field sticky with mud. His crew chief, T/Sgt Cecil F. Grove of Waverly, MO., sat beside him as he took the plane off a dangerously-short improvised runway.

Transferred to 578th BS (RCL Q) and lost 3 Mar 44.
