3 Lost B-24's in Burma 14 Nov. 1943

Post by rspeck » Tue Jun 12, 2018 4:18 pm

I'm looking for two of three B-24's of the 10th AF, 7th BG, 493rd Bombardment Squadron that went down due to a Japanese fighter attack over Burma on 14 Nov. 1943. The third B-24 that went down that day was piloted by Major Werner. One of the other two that was shot down was piloted by Major George Johnson (the plane my uncle was the tail gunner on). the last is unknown. This was a 6 plane, B-24 group that was on a mission to bomb Pakokku, Burma from India. ANY information would be greatly appreciated, Thank you.
