Re: Loss of 2nd Lt. William Jefferson, P-38 pilot, on 10.VI.1944?

MACR 5761 covers his loss. Following is the report written by Lt. Jackson B. Wells on Jefferson' it is word for word. "For mechanical reasons I had to turn back from the Ploesti mission at the Danube River 8 miles SSW of Vidin. Lt. Jefferson was flying number 3 in the first flight and I was flying number 4. When I last saw him he was flying straight and level." On the first page of the MACR, there was no cause listed, i.e., aircraft, anti-aircraft fire, etc. Hopefully someone else can supply further information.
