John B. Dickson
On December 2, 1944, pilot John B. Dickson's crew (B-24H # 42-51100, nicknamed "Tiger," assigned to the 706th Bomb Squadron) was scheduled as part of a raid on the railway facilities at Bingen, Germany. The weather was cloudy, forcing the lower squadrons to fly through cloud banks. The target was reached and bombed through the clouds, with unknown results. On the withdrawal from target movement, no flak or fighters were seen. Two B-24s fell behind the formation and disappeared into the clouds. Neither was seen again, and neither returned home...It is speculated that Dickson's B-24 collided with B-24H # 42-95105, named "She's Mine," piloted by John E. Ilstad. Missing Air Crew Report 11054 was issued.

The crew complement of "Tiger" is identified as:

2 Lt John B. Dickson p
2 Lt Lawrence A. Whitaker c-p
2 Lt Ernest Levine nav
2 Lt Anthony P. Bonaiuto bomb/nose gun
Sgt John D. Sauran eng/tt gun
Sgt John R. Christman r/o

Thank you for the quick response on Wm. Warner. William grew up in Wethersfield and his parents erected a monument in his honor.
