This photo was taken moments before USAAF Photo 54764A.C. This photo was taken by Lt Norman Phillips who was navigator on another bomber. The official caption for USAAF Photo 54764A.C. lists the date as 13 Oct 1944 but the plane was lost two months before that (s/n 41-28816; MACR 8005).

My father Lt. Robert Worsthorn was the pilot of this plane when it was damaged by "ack-ack" during a Vienna bomb run the on August 22nd 1944 and ditched over the former Yogoslavia. MACR 8005. The crew bailed out when the plane couldn't maintain altitude. He got back to Italy, flew some more missions, and made it home. Some were captured and survived German POW camps.
