COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

Robert Honeycutt | 415th Bomb Squadron, 98th Bomb Group - Army Air Corps

5:24   |   It was his 29th mission, a bombing raid over Austria, when Bob Honeycutt's luck ran out. First they lost an engine. Then, when they dropped behind the formation, they were swarmed by German fighters. As the gunners fell one by one, a rocket finally set the plane on fire and blew him right out into the air. Part 1 of 6.
