Their first pass knocked out one of the bomber's engines, the second pass knocked out another. Thereafter the fighters concentrated on the crippled bomber. The plane rapidly lost altitude, crashed into the ocean and exploded. three crew members were able to bail out, but only the navigator survived to become a prisoner of war.

Allison was from Wood County Ohio. His parents were Stanley Truman Allison and Parnell (White) Allison. He received the Silver Star, the Distinguished Flying Cross with Oak Leaf Cluster, the Air Medal with Oak Leaf Cluster and the Purple Heart.
