B-24 (H), "Little Lulu" no. 42-52479 (Red J, 776th Bomb Squadron, 464th Bomb Group, 55th Bombardment Wing, 15th Air Force) was attacked by German fighters and shot down while on a bombing raid, the target of which was an oil refinery in Pardubice in Czechoslovakia. The event occurred near the village Vlcice in the territory of Jindrichuv Hradec (Czechoslovakia) when the bombers were returning to their airbase in Pantanella in Italy on 24 August, 1944. Nose Gunner Sgt Thad J. Watson Sr.(KIA) shot down an FW-190A8 (W.Nr.681361, II.(Sturm)/JG300 "Wilde Sau", "Yellow 7", the pilot Fw. Hubert Engst) from his nose turret. The radio operator, Sgt John F. D'Amore, was the only survivor of the crew.
