P-38 43-2343

MACR 4036 says that Cecil O Lewis, 95th Fighter Squadron, 82d Fighter Group bailed out over the town of D. (Donji) Brovac approximately 60 miles from Belgrade in April 1944. I cannot find this town. I have found a D. Brodac (now Brodac Donji), and a Obrovac. Does anyone have an idea where this town may be? The map in the MACR makes the town seem southwest of Belgrade.

Re: P-38 43-2343

Hello ghost,

the info in the column MACR# is wrong. The MACR 4036 lists the correct AAF serial number 43-2343. The serial no. 42-110746 relates to the left engine Allison V1710-53 (MACR No. 7 Engines).

Regards
Leo
