|Pilot Major Selmon W. Wells (rescued)
Gunner SSgt Jack W. Bachelder (rescued)
Ditched March 13, 1944 at 8:40am
This A-20 was hit by anti-aircraft fire that caused both engines to begin smoking. Pilot Wells successfully ditched into the sea roughly two miles east of Sek Island. Both crew survived unhurt, but their life raft failed to inflate automatically, requiring them to partially inflate it by mouth.
