P47 41-6230 362nd Fighter Group 377th Fighter Squadron
25 January 1944
Mission: Ramrod (short range bomber attacks to destroy ground targets)
Crash: Near Eupen
Major John J Fisher O-427486
I was flying position 3 in TROOp TRAIN blue Flight returning from Ramrod mission over enemy territory. Troop Train yellow reported “boogies” to the rear. I saw Yellow 2, Major Fisher, rack his plane into a tight, steep bank to port. He spun left for two turns, recovered, climbed, spun to right. Three time, he almost succeeded in bringing his ship under control. Lost sight him as he was overcast ( about 4000 ft.) still spinning.
