Carl G. Wofford

Lt. Emory L. Wofford of the 491st Bomb Squadron was on of 16 pilots to ferry A-26 'Invader' aircraft to USAAF forces in Germany in October 1945.  Click here to see him in a crew photo.

Because he is the only 'Wofford' listed on the 491st Bombardment Squadron roster, he has often been confused with Lt. Carl A Wofford, who was the squadron's first combat casualty. On February 24, 1943, just six days after being assigned to the 491st, 2Lt. Carl Wofford was shot and killed by fire from a Japanese fighter while flying as copilot on the Squadron Commander's aircraft.
