MEDDIE BROUILLETTE

Starboard (Right) Side - C/N (Control #) 186

Info Contributor - Mark Coffee

Lost power on #1 and #2 engines returning from a mission to Prato, Italy, 15 Jan 44. Four men bailed out before the ship went into a tight spiral and crashed into the Adriatic killing the remaining six aboard - MACR 2397

The name MIGHTY MOUSE is an error and originates from "Grottaglie, and Home", page 54 in a story by Angelo Gervasi. Gervasi and Brouillette were both members of the Frones crew, although neither flew on 15 Jan 44 when 41-28594 went down. I suppose with the passage of time, Gervasi mistakenly remembered the name as MIGHTY MOUSE.
