Lawrence Grimm c1944
|Pilot 1st Lt. Laurence H. Grimm, O-762046
Force Landed October 30, 1944
When the bomber arrived at Tacloban Airfield, the area was under Japanese air attack and American gunners were firing. He attempted a force landing with only two engines, but obstructions forced him to abort. During the second landing attempt, a white phosphorous bomb burst on the runway. He applied the breaks causing the nose wheel blew out. But, the bomber landed without injury to the crew.
