COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

Burt Vardeman | 824th Bomb Squadron, 484th Bomb Group, 15th Air Force - Army Air Corps

7:17   |   Burt Vardeman was at his waist gun when one of the fighter escorts flew close enough to see the pilot's face. Was that a black pilot? He really got an eye opening experience when his plane developed engine trouble and had to crash land at what turned out to be the base of the Tuskegee Airmen.
