COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

Bill Livingstone | 334th Bomb Squadron, 95th Bomb Group, 8th Air Force - Army Air Corps

8:11   |   When the bombs were released, the B-17 sharply rose in the air, then banked right. Bill Livingstone heard a loud pop and that's when two engines were knocked out. They were losing speed and altitude fast and they didn't know where they were. The decision was made to dump the Norden bombsight and he watched it fall into the darkness below. Part 2 of 5.
