Over the target, the bombers met intense anti-aircraft fire while dropping parafrag bombs and strafing. Three B-25, including this aircraft were damaged. This bomber was worst damaged, and crashed into the sea (reportedly Matchin Bay).
Bailey survived and was captured and became a Prisoner Of War (POW) and transported to Rabaul. He was detained by the 81st Naval Guard Unit (Keibitai) and did not survive the war and was probably executed.
