"Jamaica?" was lost on September 25th. 1944 during a fuel hauling mission. The plane was piloted by 2nd. Lt. Joseph F. W. Diamni of Donora PA. according to Missing Air Crew Report #9575. All 6 crewmen were listed as KIA. The fuel hauling missions were performed without guns / gunners so that is why there was only a 6 man crew.
Crew #503 flew with the 466th. BG earlier in 1944 so they were definitely in the thick of things. This period of the daylight bombardment of Germany had a high attrition rate due to a lack of long range fighter escorts.
The "Jamaica?" name was a play on words....= "Did you make her?"
The Booth Crew saw action with different Bomb Groups.
