(JAAF) Enemy airplanes attack Dumpu

March 15, 1944
(JAAF) Five Ki-48 Lilys from the 208th Sentai took off to attack Nadzab in three waves. Weather interfered. The first wave reached Hansa Bay, skirted the coast and could not penetrate the rain clouds, ended up over Long Island and returned. Third wave got to a position between Manam Island and Karkar Island, then turned back due to bad weather. The second wave: Lt Saito and S/Mjr Tsukagoe diverted to Dumpu, dropping 8 Ka-4 bombs with unobserved results. One Ki-48 was shot down by anti-aircraft fire and crashed near Dumpu.
