    Mission History
    Took off from Henderson Field on Guadalcanal on a night bombing mission against Kahilli Airfield (Buin Airfield) on Bougainville. Over the target at dusk, this bomber was last contacted by radio at 19:10 and failed to return from the mission. It was believed this B-17 was lost in the vicinity of the target area.

    Search
    The next day, three B-17s from the 31st Bombardment Squadron led by Captain Carroll searched for this bomber unsuccessfully. Several US Navy planes also conducted searches without results. On June 12, 1943 two B-17s led by Captain Roberts conducted another search without results.

    Memorials
    The entire crew was officially declared dead on December 19, 1945. The entire crew (with the exception of Bowser) is memorialized on the tablets of the missing at Manila American Cemetery. Bowser is memorialized at the courts of the missing at National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific (Punchbowl).
