Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans

COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

Harold Dudley | 111th Army Airways Communications Squadron, 86th Army Airfield Unit, 13th Air Force

5:19   |   Harold Dudley describes the navigation equipment he installed at far flung airfields in Africa. He had to fly to Italy and back on supply runs and on one of these flights, a hitchhiking senior pilot took command of the plane and promptly got them lost. The policy which allowed this was changed due to this incident. (This interview made possible with the support of CHESTER RUST.)
