Boogy Buggy was the B-26 that introduced me-and our crew-to aerial warfare. I recall sitting in the tail gun position on the morning mission to Brest, on September 5, 1944. We encountered light 40 mm ground fire as we neared the target, but nothing significant as I learned later. My thoughts at the time were rather rash, I must admit; "Hell," I remember thinking, "this is a piece of cake."  - William J. Thompson, Jr.

Boogy Buggy survived the war.
