2nd Lt, USAAF WWII
S/N O-810982
Co-Pilot

Hometown- Lacrosse County, Wisconsin


The aircraft was a Consolidated B-24 Liberator, an American heavy bomber, #41-29248. It was part of the 448th Bomb Group, 713th Bombing Squadron; Squadron Code "IG" Q. This aircraft was normally piloted by 2nd Lt George W. Elkins and his crew, however on the previous mission, Lt Elkins was struck with shrapnel and was recuperating in the hospital. On that mission, it is reported that the Co-Pilot had left his position to use the bathroom when they were hit, otherwise the Co-Pilot would have been killed. The plane was shot down by flak on a mission to Cognac, France. The replacement pilot on this mission was Lt. Max R. Jordan. This crew is believed to have often flown a different plane called 'Cold Turkey'. All 10 airmen were killed.
