More About Captain Skogmo

Prior to being deployed to the European Theatre, Captain Skogmo was stationed at Hendricks Army Airfield. This was a training base for four-engine heavy bomber flight crews.

Capt. Skogmo was killed in action while piloting the lead aircraft on a mission to Emden, Germany. The formation was attacked by six twin engine Messerschmitt 110 fighters that dove out of the sun toward the front of the formation and concentrated on the lead plane, hitting it with a rocket.
