I doubt that your remember me but this little story could refresh your memory.

On Dec. 11, 1944 I flew my first mission on Witchcraft #94 mission. Capt. Joe Severance, pilot. We were caught in prop wash and as we pulled out we lost 1000# bombs through both left bomb bay doors. We caught up with the Group and bombed Hanau, Gr.

I am the person that went into the bomb bay and used the arming wires to tie the doors mostly closed so that we could land more safely and we caught hell from Joe Ramirez and never flew the Witchcraft #534 again. . . .

Sincerely,

Joe L. Abernathy
