COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

Clint Henderson | 545th Bomb Squadron, 384th Bomb Group - Army Air Corps

4:59   |   His pilot was hit by a piece of shrapnel and was out for a short time. Gunner Clint Henderson recalls that they actually asked the crew if they would fly with the co-pilot as pilot. Of course! They had every confidence in him. The flak was heavy out there but no one in the B-17 crew ever thought about going down in the plane.
