More About First Lieutenant Quinn

First Lieutenant Quinn served in the Army Air Force as a Bombardier and Navigator on B-25D #41-30372. 1st Lt. Quinn's plane, B-25D #41-30372, was one of four B-25s that took off from Mokmer Airfield on Biak on a mission to search for enemy aircraft in MacCluer Gulf. While still in formation this B-25 developed engine trouble and had to turn back to base. They never arrived at the base and were assumed to have crashed into the sea.
