Hong Kong Harbor, scene 1 &2, Large freighter, Just came across the harbor about 10' above the water firing B25H canon of nose guns, you can see where skip bombs hit close as I cleared over the mast (next) and you can see sailors running on the deck - the ship sink confirmed by photo-recon after the strike. Heavy flak - my friend Dan Loring had one engine knocked out - pictures taken by Tsgt Volmer, tailgunner.

The author, James Flanagan (Captain), was Operations Officer of the 491st Bomb Squadron and Dan Loring (Captain) was Operations Officer of the 11th Bomb Squadron, both of the 341st Bomb Group. T/Sgt Manuel E. Vollmer was Flanagan's tailgunner and, as noted, took this fantastic series of photographs.

From an October 16, 1944, mission on Hong Kong, 491st Bomb Squadron. Click here for a detailed description of this mission.
