Re: Japanese balloon shoot down by USAAF P-63 - March 1945

Leendert, I think the 423rd Base Unit (or 423rd CCTS -Combat Crew Training Station-Heavy) was the training unit at Walla Walla.

Look at the accident list here: https://www.aviationarchaeology.com/...y/Mar1945S.htm

Note that some B-24 accidents involved B-24s at Walla Walla. Also look at all the P-63 accidents and how most were assigned to training or base units.

Or this one: https://www.aviationarchaeology.com/...y/Feb1945S.htm, which shows P-63 42-69086 crashing on 2/27/1945. It was assigned to the 423rd BU at Walla Walla.
