An early mission had been scheduled and combat crew members had early chow, but at 10:00 A.M. the
raid was postponed until afternoon. Takeoff was at 14:25 when ten B-25/s of the 487th left the runway
to attack Perugia A/D. The formation was over the target at 17:17 hours dropping their entire bomb
load of 80x500's in a pattern which started short of the Airdrome extending to the edge of the airfield.
It is believed that only two or three bombs may have hit in the eastern dispersal area of the drome. All
ships were holed by an intense, accurate concentration of anti-aircraft fire. 7K was hit over the target
and only two 'chutes were observed coming out of the ship before it exploded upon contact with the
ground. 2nd Lts. B.B. Barker, R.B. Hicks, S/Sgt. A.H. Vervacke and Sgts. S. Tulin, J.T. Raschetz and
D.H. Pinkerton were crew members of the ill fated bomber.
