A "break".  A response from the message board.  However the information is wrong.  He stated that the plane (2nd line) was from the 524BS then to the 526th Bomb Sq.  which cannot be . . . the plane was ditched and never recovered so it could not have gone to 526th.  Will have to contact this person to see where he received his information.
