Last Known Activity
He was part of a top-secret photo recon mission to fly over Japanese held islands in the Pacific just before the start of WWII. His aircraft was still at Hickam Field, Oahu, T.H. on the morning of Dec 7, 1941 when the base was attacked and 2 of his crew were killed by a Japanese bomb. In Mar 1942 he flew President Manuel Quezon of the Philippines to safety so he wouldn't be captured by the enemy. He was killed on a mission to bomb the Singapore Naval Base when his B-29 exploded and crashed into the Bay of Bengal with the loss of 11 crew and 1 passenger. His remains were not recovered; he is memorialized at Manila. He was officially declared dead Mar 27, 1946.
