It's because they call the plane a Gooney Bird (C-47) , or as it better know the short bus. :D

Nothing could keep me from being the bombardier....it's the best job on the list for me. The cool thing is that my career test said that I'd be at doing this kind of stuff for the military. Too bad that Artillery Officer wasn't on here...that was at the top of the list.

Dearest Cindy,

Okay, I have been assigned my first crew. Who would have thought that a crop duster from Natchitoches, Lousiana would have been flying the greatest single piece of aerial armament known to mankind. Not only flying it, but commanding its crew as well.

They are a solid group. Lattimer is my co-pilot. He obviously has seen some action, I don't think I will ask him about that scar until I get to know him better.

My bombardier, Slayer Diablo, is nothing but a crawdad-eyed raw recruit. Hell, someone has already had him looking for blinker fluid for the last 2 hours, but I think he will catch on quick.

We have an Indian for a navigator, go bo. So far all I have seen him find is the local officer's club. We have had to drag him out of their a couple of times before he was caught - definitely has an eye for fire water. If we keep him sober he should be one of the best mappers in our squadron.

KCJohnny is my engineer. He has some extensive military background and seems to be more than he is. You know the OSS has several missions going on right now with lot's of undercover soldiers helping out. I don't mind if it is for the good of our country, but he had better realize there is only one rooster on this plane.

Radio Operator, Redcoats58 seems like an amicable guy. Easy to get along with and always has some inside info for us, just the right guy for the radio.

Our Tail Gunner is voyager. I don't see any possible scenario he hasn't thought of. I just hope he isn't running through them and wondering what might have been instead of actually acting on the data he has.

Our other gunners, Ball Turret Gunner munkey, Right Waist Gunner TheFly, and Left Waist Gunner cdcox are all stand up fellas with a lot to prove. But they seem to already have some previous battle seasoning and don't look like they will take guff from anyone. These are the guys I want by me when a barroom brawl breaks out, or a war.

England is beautiful in the summer, but it is more like fall in Lousiana. There is a constant smell of mist in the air, kinda like New Orleans on a foggy morning. The guys are always pushing for leave and I have to bail them out of trouble constantly. I think at least 3 MPs have already saved up enough money from our group to buy a vacation house in Havana. But it ain't nothing but little trouble they get into, a fight here, a mad husband there. They really are a good crew.

Oh, our plane is the Red, White, and Blew By You. I thought you would like that considering that Blue Bayou is the name we chose for our farm and ranch when I get home.

Hell, I might even write a song about it. There are a couple of fellas here who can help me with the music as I already got the lyrics figured out - Joe Melson and Roy somebody. I didn't get Roy's last name, but he sure has a funny voice when he sings.
Sorry about the cursing, it just comes easy now hanging around all these guys all the time. I will work on it.

Well, I gotta hit the hay. We have a full day of briefing tomorrow and I want to be fresh. Go by my house and tell momma I will write her this week. Check on daddy. You know how he thinks he can move mountains by himself. Gene said he would help with any chores that need more than one man until I get back. Love always and your picture will always be right by my side.

Dear Mom and Dad:

I'm just back from our first bombing run. Our bombardier didn't make it back. I never even found out where he was from. I asked him one day and he just said, "The outskirts of town." The only other notable thing about him was he had these big yellow teeth. I used to hate to look at them, but I feek kinda bad about it now since he got hit in the face and probably doesn't have any teeth anymore.

I'm okay. Most of the action was on the other side of the plane, so I didn't even get to fire my weapon. Captain said it was cause they heard what a dead eye I am. He's a good egg, even if he does talk a little funny, coming from Louisiana and all. One thing I'll say, riding in Red, White and Blew by You is way different than driving the tractor back in Kansas.

Even though we lost a guy, I feel like we got off easy compared to Tequila Rose (that's another plane) that had their mission earlier in the day. They pulled two dead people off that plane, and 4 more that were hit. One of those died later in the hopital. Even the pilot was hit, but he landed the plane through it all. I'll tell you that after I saw the medics pulling all those bloody people off the plane, I was having real second thoghts about going up there myself. With a mission under my belt, I'm feeling a little better about it.

You know when I came over here, I felt kinda funny about fighting against the Germans, seeing how Grandma and Grandpa came over when they were kids. But now, after seeing what happened to Slayer and the TR crew, I know that I'm doing the right thing.

Have pastor say a prayer for me and the other boys over here. We are gonna need it. Say hi, to Otilia, Esther, Dorothy, Verna, Mildrid, Mary Ann, Robert, Jr., Harold, Bill, and Lindel for me. Don't worry too much.

Mr. and Mrs. Diablo,

It is with heavy heart I inform you of your son's passing.

Slayer Diablo was a hero in all meanings of the word. He gave his life over Germany so that others could continue the assault against an evil empire. Slayer slipped his mortal coil without pain. He showed a resolve reserved only for real men during this time of crisis, he was intent on completing all tasks set forth and doing so with vim and vigor. He was a shiny example for all my crew. He died completing his mission and creating damage that the Germans will not easily recover from.

I have included Slayer's personal effects with this letter. He was a good kid and will be sorely missed.

Sincerely Captain Wolfman

Dearest Cindy,

War is ugly on many levels, some never foreseen. The terrible action is nothing like the Errol Flynn movies we have seen, the carnage is horrible and the circumstances much more dire. I watched a boy die as he was struck directly in the face with enemy fire, there was nothing that could be done. Then I lied to his parents so that their lasting memories would be one of pride and honor in their family name.

The planes that come at you come from all angles, usually from above and out of the sun. You see and hear nothing until the last moment. The bullets go through our frame like a Ted Williams bat through a wet paper towel. If a bullet happens to stay in the plane, it is still hot enough to scorch the metal it lays upon. Our radio operator almost went up in a hailstorm that struck his equipment. Had he not had the equipment there, I would have authored two letters instead of one.

Don't get me wrong, Cindy, I don't fear death. As Pastor Michaels says, we can't stop the inevitable. But I fear for my men and keeping up their morale. We must stop the cursed Huns before the amass enough power to come overseas and continue their heartless carnage. We will never be able to do so if we don't have the heart and resolve to continue on in the face of extreme adversity.

The kid who died was the bug-eyed one on the bombadier rack, Slayer Diablo. He never was nothing, but a simple farm hand with a taste for Nehi soda and playing Go Fish. The boys razzed him all the time about not gambling, not drinking, and not girl chasin', but it didn't seem to bother him at all. His loss has greatly affected our crew, regardless of what they say.

I told his parents he completed his mission and wreaked havoc on the enemy. That was a blatant lie, our mission was a failure in all senses of the word save the fact that we came back home safe. I felt the lie was necessary, but I prayed the Lord forgive my decision and look upon my lies with mitigation I served his parents. God forgive me, it was the lesser of two evils.

Cindy, forget me not, and pray for me daily. My love for you, my family, and my country keep me going and give me the strength I need to complete this horrid action in Europe.

Dearest Cindy,

War is ugly on many levels, some never foreseen. The terrible action is nothing like the Errol Flynn movies we have seen, the carnage is horrible and the circumstances much more dire. I watched a boy die as he was struck directly in the face with enemy fire, there was nothing that could be done. Then I lied to his parents so that their lasting memories would be one of pride and honor in their family name.

The planes that come at you come from all angles, usually from above and out of the sun. You see and hear nothing until the last moment. The bullets go through our frame like a Ted Williams bat through a wet paper towel. If a bullet happens to stay in the plane, it is still hot enough to scorch the metal it lays upon. Our radio operator almost went up in a hailstorm that struck his equipment. Had he not had the equipment there, I would have authored two letters instead of one.

If you ask him nicely, cdcox will show you his stitches.

Other than the fact that go bo has failed to hit a single target, we have done rather well. I have invited Robert Conrad and his crew from the Pacific theater to guard us on the next mission.

Dear Mom and Dad:

I've had two more missions since I last wrote. I even got my first medal: a purple heart. Don't worry, I'm no worse off than that time Robert caught that barb wire fence with his belly runnig from the cows. According to the guys up front, a Messerschmidt came in from the front right of the plane. I was hit before I even saw him. Luckily it only grazed me. The neat thing was that after we dropped our bombs, Captain KCWolfman came over the intercom and said, "Jerry's getting no more shots at you boys today." He then pulled right up between two other Fortresses and next thing I know we're on the ground safe and sound. Made me feel like he was really looking after us. The other waist gunner, Headsnap, also made the trip back to England go fast. He kept tellin' me about how all the nurses here at the hospital would be taking fine care of me. And you know, he was right about that. There is a cute brunnette that gave me an extra Hershey bar after dinner tonight. I reckon I'll ask her out for a beer next weekend. Doc says that I will be back in the saddle for the next mission. Considering the alternative, I'm mighty happy with that.

Two planes that had airmen that I knew have gone down the last few days. I can't tell you what a strange feeling it is to be having a few ales at the pub with a fella one day and the next hearing that he is dead. Still, we are getting our fair share of licks in. Our bomber hasn't hit much yet (I think our bombardier likes the fire water a bit too much) but some of the other planes are racking up the hits. I here tell that while doc was stiching me up. another bomber had to belly land. Wish I could have seen that (from the ground, not the air).

Again, don't worry yourselves much over me. God protected me today when he could have taken me home. If tomorrow God wants me with him, then I guess that is pretty much where I'm gonna go. Till then, I have a job to do, and I'm ready to get back to it.

Love,

cdcox

Perhaps a little help from someone that has actually hit a few targets is in order. Try looking through that little telescope thingy - yeah you want to keep your eyes open, you really need to quit closing them, counting to ten, then releasing the bombs - that's a real waste of bombs and the crew really doesn't appreciate getting killed for nothing. When the crosshair is on your target, THEN you drop the bombs.

Unaware that the brakes are inoperable, kcwolfman sets down lightly, gently brakes, and Red, White, and Blew by You veers sharply to the right, bouncing off the runway, across the open space, and across another runway. Right waist gunner cdcox gets a splendid view of another B-17 barreling straight toward it on its own landing run, but fortunately the other B-17 is three seconds further up the runway. Kcwolfman alertly realizes that applying the brakes again will cause the plane to tip and roll, so he just steers and the plane bumps to a stop out in a clearing, none the worse for the wear.

Gobo, you avoided severe disciplinary action with your excellent run. All of you guys owe me a brew for the save on the landing. BTW - find out who our mechanic was and give him a swift chop to the jaw.

Target: Meaulte
Mid-formation horizontally and vertically (low vulnerability)

Zone 1 Out: Britain

No enemy

Zone 2 Out: English Channel

No enemy

Zone 3 Out: France (Entering Target Zone)

1 Me109 driven off by fighters

1 Fw190, 2 Me109s attack – 1 Fw190 and 1 Me109 are driven off by fighters

go bo fires, misses
redcoats58 fires, misses

Me misses, breaks off attack

Entering Bomb Zone
Good Weather
Light Flak – 4 hits (that’s bad luck)
-superficial damage to starboard wing
-superficial damage to port wing
-port wing – landing gear brakes are knocked out
-superficial damage to starboard wing

Maybe the flak buffeting was what gobo needed, because he nails the bomb run – 40% score

Zone 3 Back: France (Leaving Target Zone)

2 Me109s, 1 Me110 attack – 1 Me109 and 1 Me110 are driven off by fighters

munkey fires, kills Me109
gobo fires, misses
thefly fires, misses

Zone 2: English Channel

No enemy

Zone 1: England

Good weather
Unaware that the brakes are inoperable, kcwolfman sets down lightly, gently brakes, and Red, White, and Blew by You veers sharply to the right, bouncing off the runway, across the open space, and across another runway. Right waist gunner cdcox gets a splendid view of another B-17 barreling straight toward it on its own landing run, but fortunately the other B-17 is three seconds further up the runway. Kcwolfman alertly realizes that applying the brakes again will cause the plane to tip and roll, so he just steers and the plane bumps to a stop out in a clearing, none the worse for the wear.

Aftereffects

None

Eligible for next mission

From the way it appears Russ, Bo has more anger built up for the french than he does the germans. I would suggest that from now on when you fly a mission, tell him it's a french target regardless of where you are going.
