Accident Statement #2



I certify that on April 8, 1943, at approximately 14:50 PWT, I was flying in a four (4) ship formation as leader of the second element. While flying in trail, behind Lieut. Jago, at 9000 feet, I saw him go around one side of a cloud as I went over on the other side. When I last saw him he was flying straight and level. As I came around the cloud, I looked for Lieut. Jago but I never saw him anymore. Captain Hoffman and I circled the area for 15 minutes looking for the ship, but we could not find it anywhere. We then returned to our home base.
