Longest Non Stop Combat Mission of WWII
April 5, 2013 in Aviation
Here is a link to an article in the AirForce Magazine about the longest combat mission of WWII. Flown by my father Lt. Thomas A. Bell in his B-29 Double Trouble in June 1945.
I have seen his medal and the paperwork and even an article mom cut out of the Sacramento Bee before she knew it was dad that flew the mission. I have never seen any mention of it in any B-29 books though.
It takes a while to load, be patient
