D model utility ship. Ex 376th BG, TIDAL WAVE survivor. On 23 January 1944 she was transferred into the 449th and was maintained by Sgt. Edmund Dickmann, 718th. She became a utility aircraft used for flying parts and various administrative support missions such as carrying personnel to 15th Air Force meetings and others to rest camps. She was known to have made several cargo runs… some of which were the occasional “booze” runs to Cairo, Egypt! “Doodlebug” was salvaged on 5 July ’45.
