Re: Captured Avenger, Hellcat and Corsairs ?

Some additional information:

C.V. August was flying 71441 in a strafing attack on Kobi A/F when he apparently experienced engine trouble and force landed. His aircraft was recovered and tested at Yokosuka.

Sigman was in 57719, strafing Tomitaka A/F, Kyushu, when his division was attacked by A6Ms. It seems that he was hit in the oil system and forced to land. He was listed as MIA, but not returned at War's end.
