1/Lt. John B. Boyd of the 499th Squadron, 345th Bomb Group was piloting this brand new B-25J-22 #44-29352, when a parafrag hung up during a mission against Fabrica Airdrome on January 8, 1945. The bomb swung back in the slipstream and exploded beneath the fuselage, severely injuring the radio operator, T/Sgt. Robert C. Dusenberry. By a combination of skillful flying and good luck, Boyd succeeded in landing the plane safely at Tacloban.
