    Link to Google MapsMilitary Service - WWII: US Army Air Corps 870th Bomber Squadron, 497th Bomber Group, Very Heavy Sergeant KIA. The 73rd Bomb Wing mission took off from Isley Field, Saipan with 59 aircraft with targets in urban and dock areas of Tokyo. Five aircraft attacked targets of opportunity. Sergeant Wheeler's B-29 (tail #42-24622) crashed into the sea off Honshu after being struck by a Japanese fighter. The collision sheared off the elevator and right horizontal stabilizer. The B-29 was the first lost by XXI Bomber Command in action against the Japanese. Another aircraft on that mission ditched after running out of fuel. Eight other B-29s were damaged by ground fire and 3 were damaged by fire from other B-29s. Personnel losses were 1 killed, 11 missing and four wounded. B-29 gunners claimed 7 Jap aircraft were downed. - 24 NOV 1944 - Honolulu, Honolulu, Hawaii, USA Link to Google Earth
