Frazier's Crew


 

Middour was the original bombardier.

On 3 Dec 44, 1st LT John Frazier and his crew took off in 44-6580, to fly a night transition cross-country flight. Upon returning to the field at approximately 0210 hours, the aircraft made a normal approach to land turning on landing lights on final approach. After landing, the aircraft rolled for about 50 to 100 feet then settled onto its underside and slid to a stop. The aircraft was severely damaged, but the crew exited the aircraft uninjured.
