Statement from 1st Lt Warren H. Taylor: "I saw a direct hit in mid-section of Lt Folsom’s plane, to the immediate fear of waist windows which blew the entire tail section from that part apt, completely off the plane. The fore section immediately lurched forward into a steep dive, falling swiftly straight down. The remainder of the tail section fell apart watched ship until it fell into smoke below, and no parachutes were seen."
1st Lt Kidd was first buried at Block T, Row 10, Grave 235.
