“Thunder Bird,” the 303rd Bomb Groups’ “New Crew’ aircraft is shown on it’s 80th mission, a mission to Schweinfurt, Germany, which had claimed 163 four engined bombers and 1500 crew members on previous missions. This mission, 9 October 1944, was the 303rd’s fifth and “Thunder Bird’s” second visit to this dangerous target. It was to prove a respite, as crews daily faced the cold thin air . . . at -40°, in patched, worn out airplanes. She had seen as many as eleven sister ships lost to fighters on previous missions but she would carry more than 500 crew members into combat before retirement after 116 missions on 22 March 1945.
