|Pilot 1st Lt. Floyd H. Fulkerson (WIA, rescued)
Force Landed December 25, 1944
During the air combat, Fulkerson was credited with two Ki-43 Oscars shot down, but was hit in both tail booms and his P-38's coolant system was damaged but still had power but was unable to return to base.
Instead, he force landed in a cultivated rice paddy, skidding across the field until his aircraft came to rest against an earthen berm. The impact cracked several of Fulkerson vertebrae. This aircraft was one of three P-38s lost on the mission. Also lost on the mission was P-38L 44-24846 piloted by Koeck and P-38L 44-24889 piloted by Provencio.
