Crashed into a house in Forst, Germany. The pilot, First Lieutenant Tom E. Doyle, was killed along with one civilian on the ground. The pilot stayed with the aircraft to avoid hitting the center of the town. Unfortunately, he could not avoid a house on the outskirts of the town, killing himself and the brother of the local 'Bergermeister'. The local citizens concider the pilot a hero for this action.
