After return to the United States at Kingman, AZ. When the plane was on the island of Ie Shima (after the war ended), General Kenny, commander of the 5th Air Force, wanted to keep the plane and fly it back to the United States. The plane was equipped with "synthetic" rubber tires, which was a brand new deal back then, and the General wanted "real" rubber tires on the plane when he took it back to the States. So he literally "scoured" the pacific in order to find the real rubber tires, and had them flown in to Ie Shima and fitted onto the plane. After a thorough pre-flight, he took off in the plane for a check-out flight, wherein, all went well, and they were to return to the island and leave the next day. Upon landing, one of the damn rubber tires blew-out and the plane skidded off the runway and crashed!

Doodlebug, Bomb Squadron. Probably the 308th aircraft with the most Hump flights. In addition to the eleven bomb mission symbols and the ten Jap flags (aircraft shot down), 'Doodlebug had 120 snow-capped mountain symbols stenciled on her, representing 120 trips over the HUMP!
The 308th... performed some of the most accurate bombing of the US Army Air Forces and used the first American smart bomb called the Azon. The 308th also sustained the highest casualty rate in the USAAF, for its missions were long and hard, often conducted at very low level and at night through the very heart of Japanese-occupied territory and over their controlled sea lanes.

The 308th flew nearly 600 combat missions under conditions that would have been deemed impossible in Europe. At the end of a 12,000-mile supply line, every ounce of gasoline,
every bomb, every spark plug, had to be dragged over the hazardous, high altitude route across the mountains, along what became known as the Aluminum Trail for the plane
wreckage scattered along the way. There were few radio or navigational aids, and the weather was usually bad. Midway through the war, crew viewed combat missions as less
stressful than the haul over the Hump. It took about four trips hauling supplies to be ready for one bombing mission.

When the Army Air Force Headquarters in Washington tallied the bombing accuracy of every bomb group in combat, I was astonished to find that the 308th led them all.
