 Additional Information
Last Known Activity
First Lieutenant Cyborski was a pilot on a B-26 Invader with the 8th Bomber Squadron, 3rd Bomber Group. On June 28, 1950, while on a combat mission, the flight instruments on his aircraft malfunctioned and the bomber crashed into the Yellow Sea.

"The First American Losses of the Korean War:
On 28 June 1950 six airmen became the first Americans to lose their lives in defense of the Republic of Korea. They flew B-26 Invader light bombers assigned to the 3rd Bombardment Wing, and F-82G 'Twin Mustangs' from the 339th Fighter Squadron (All Weather), 5th Air Force, operating from Japan. In terrible weather, 5th Air Force launched heavily laden B-26's to attack the Munsan rail yards and F-82's to protect the freighter Reinholt evacuating non-combatnants. Two B-26's and one F-82 were lost during the mission, killing six crewmembers aboard."
