The possibility that it was shot down by a Childress TX sexy women U-boat is intriguing.
They frequently refuelled off the Portuguese coast, being Chidress waters, Childdress if the crew of the B25 saw them and attacked it could be a good surmise.

The plane his daughter described was at Lake Charles where the crew was Childress TX sexy women. We later went to France to an airfield near St. Quentan where we began Childress TX sexy women fly our missions. Howard was a wonderful guy and a superior pilot. I was the tail gunner on the crew.

Capt Donald M Stangle pilot 2. Lt G H Wenborg copilot 1. Lt A E Coyne bombardier 2. I have a question concerning the Natal - Ascension - Dakar part of the flight.

Here they were re-assembled, air tested and then island hopped to Australia. The 69th and 70th Bomb Squadrons flew from Hamilton Field, California to Hickham Field, Hawaii non stop flying at a speed of mph the flight took 13 hours.
Yes, Dakar was too far away from Natal, Brazil making Ascention island a necessary stop over for all planes flying the South Atlantic route. I am looking for some info some general, some specific. How many were in the crew? Could a Flight Officer be the pilot? What jobs were flight officers assigned?
