I set him on fire with a burst that went through the engine to the cockpit and wingroots. He rolled to his right and passed me on my left. I didn't see him crash but my gun camera showed the fire, and my wingman, Joe Morrison confirmed the crash. The other three went right over my head and down on the tail of Green one and two and shot both of them down. I kept turning to my right, Morrison staying with me, and saw another 190 right up behind one of my tent mates, Joe Jackson, who was White four.
His airplane looked like a lace doily. The two 190s that had gone over me wound up on his tail. He was flying, but barely. I talked to Hoey and found out he was out of ammunition, too. We hadn't flown more than four or five minutes more when another 38 joined us. He was John Allen from the 94th squadron. We were happy to see him and hoped he had some ammo. When we called to ask, we found out his radio was out and we couldn't talk to him. We hadn't gone more than twenty or thirty miles west and were just getting a little altitude when we ran into a bunch of flak.

He will recall it again and again, and while he may never speak of it to anyone else, it will stay fresh in his memory down through the years.
