#97755959 - the photos that you added to Art's memorial of his fathers headstone not his. Could you remove them please. That Art was born in 1914 and Walter Art was born in 1941 and Art died in 2010 and Walter Art died in 2012. Thank you in advance.
Thanks for the photo of Lt. Skedsvold's site.
I passed this along to the Memorial owner:
He was assigned to XX Bomber Command, 58th Bomb Wing, 462nd Bombardment Group 'The Hellbirds', 768th Bomb Squadron stationed at Piardoba airfield in southern Bengal, India.
As part of Operation Matterhorn to bomb Japan, his B-29 aircraft flew over the Himalayan mountain range and logistically staged a bombing mission through Kiunglai airfield (A-5) near Chengdu, China. On 20 August 1944, he flew as a Co-pilot in the right seat aboard B-29 serial # 42-24474. It was one of 75 aircraft in a multi-group formation on a mission to bombard the Imperial Iron and Steel Works at Yawata, Japan.
During the bomb run over the target, his aircraft was hit with flak from anti-aircraft artillery. After bombs away, the aircraft turned for home and was attacked by a band of Kawasaki KI-45 'Nick' and Nakajima KI-84 'Frank' fighter planes. Simultaneously, the aircraft was hit with an enemy air-to-air incendiary bomb, causing structural damage and starting a fire in the mid-deck station.
The aircraft went down over Iki Island in the Korea strait. After bailing out, he was killed by machine-gun fire from the enemy fighter planes.
Two other men on the plane also died - Chester Tims and Wallace Remick. The remaining men on the crew were help prisoner by the Japanese until the war ended
