COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

Crawford Hicks | 509th Bomb Squadron, 356th Bomb Group, 1st Air Division - Army Air Corps

7:53   |   B-17 pilot Crawford Hicks was returning from his tenth mission when he spotted the German fighter coming in with guns blazing. The plane was crippled by hits on the engines so they had to bail out. After the others had jumped, he looked down through the hatch to the ground far below, then he fell.
