While returning from the Ulm mission of 10 September 1944, Lt. Norman L. Smith of the 376th piloting Lt. Hugh D. Chapman’s personal P-51B “Clara Ann”, 42-106688, E9:B was forced to crash-land near Montdidier in France because of a fuel problem. Luckily, Lt. Smith was soon able to make contact with American troops nearby and made his way back to Bottisham via Amiens and Brussels. Meanwhile, “Clara Ann” became something of a local attraction! (Pierre)
