Re: Typhoon Ursula - Sept 1945 - Formosa - 6 US a/c lost?

Another possible loss due to Ursula: B-24M 44-50459 of 531st BS/380th BG.

Disappeared in storm (8 Sep 45) while on return to Clark Field after a POW flight. 5 US crew MIA since.
See http://380th.org/NEWS/TAPS/TAPS-MIA.pdf at bottom.

Regards,

Leendert

(Not POW flights, but equally high in fatalities around that time were Dakota A65-56, RAAF, with 3 crew and 16 PAX on 11 Sep 1945,and USAAF C-47A 42-23860 of 68th TCS/433rd TCG with 4 crew and 26 PAX on 6 Sep 1945. The latter one near Tacloban, PI, "in severe storm").
