    b17_31_B-17F-1-BO_41-24388_97BG 24Aug42_gibraltar.jpg .


    B-17F-1-BO serial 41-24388
    Assigned 92BG Bangor 31/7/42;
    340BS/97BG Polebrook 8/42;
    damaged UK 7/9/42,
    rep; flew Gens Doolittle & Lemnitzer to Gibraltar 6/11/42;
    Now the flight above was not un eventful:

    Operation Torch: Eisenhower, Doolittle, Clark, Lemnitzer, and other officers depart for Gibraltar aboard six B-17 bombers
    Bay of Biscay
    USAAF B-17 bomber transporting Doolittle and Lemnitzer to Gibraltar attacked and damaged by Luftwaffe Ju-88 fighters
    Gibraltar
    Operation Torch: Doolittle, Clark, Lemnitzer, and other officers arrive aboard B-17s
    and some nice tit bit
    Quote: My father was the copilot on that b-17 that got shot up and had to land in Gibraltar. there is an interesting account of this in the book Flying fortresses by Jablonski. My father was wounded, gave up his seat to Doolittle. they almost went into the drink when attacked off the coast transporting all the vip's to the Gibraltar conference with no guns.

    and piloted by Lt. John C. Summers after transfer to the 340th BS, 97th BG. He and his crew named it 'Summers' Sleepers
