Aircraft ditched off Foreness Point


This picture was taken on 8th March 1944 of a ditched B17G Bomber of the 381st Bomb Group 532nd Bomb Squadron . The damaged B17G was returning from a bombing raid on the VKA Ball Bearing Works, Erkner, Berlin when it was forced to ditched. The pilot Lt Rodney T Cahill and the crew all survived. As more information comes to light through the Margate Historical Societies aviation expert John Williams I will be keeping you posted with new research over the coming weeks.
