As a 388th Squadron ground crew serviced A-20G-30 #43-9468, OLD S, on June 10, 1945, an electrical short ignited a fire. When it spread, the planeʼs bombs exploded, destroying OLD S, two other A-20s and damaging a fourth plane. This photograph shows the remains of OLD S and the crater at the blast site. One of the Wright R-2600 engines is on the ground at the far right. There were no fatalities from the explosion. (Kenneth H. Saff Collection)
