    I was wondering if anyone might know of where I might be able to get some information on two WWII Planes that went down on 26 Dec 1943 near Wotje Atoll of the Marshall Islands. My Great Uncle, Clarence H Hane was a Technical Sergeant on one of the planes. I believe they were both B 24's

    Dashin Daisy and Dinah Night.

    If anyone knows anything about that date or either of those planes, I would be very grateful!

    Thanks,
    Ray

    I know they were both with the 30th bomb group 27th Squadron. Yes they were both B-24's and were lost on the date you gave. I'll look some more later, unless someone else finds the info first.
