Consolidated B-24J-150-CO Liberator 44-40210 854th BS, 491st BG, 8th AF Hit by light-flak on the September 18,1944 low-level supply drop mission for the 82nd and 101st Airborne Divisions in the area of Eindhoven, Holland. The plane was badly hit in the right wing and the pilot, Capt. James K. Hunter, decided to belly her into a field, but lost the #3 engine at an altitude of 50 ft, causing the right wing to dip low enough to touch the ground.” Source: D. Sheley on Flickr
