|Pilot F/O Robert M. Gentile, T-060795 (MIA / KIA) MA
MIA November 7, 1943 at 1:00pm
Escorted by element 1st Lt. Leland B. Blair roughly 30 miles south of Wide Bay before entering a bad weather overcast at 25,000'. Blair called to him on the radio to fly on his wing and try to fly around the weather. He did not get the radio message and flew into the weather at slow speed and was never seen again south of St. George's Channel and west of Wide Bay. Blair searched the area for 30 minutes before returning to base and reporting Gentile as Missing In Action (MIA).
