Transferred into the 449th on 8 February ’44 and assigned to Wallis L. “Spider” Webb’s crew. This ship flew many combat missions before becoming a static training ship, for gear operation, flaps, bomb-bay door emergency operations, etc. [Note: “Star Dust” was possibly the most photographed ship of the 449th, due to her being used for ground training sessions for both air and ground crews in late ‘44 and early ‘45, while she was minus many parts, from combat damage, and parked by Group Headquarters … thus many persons took crew and various snapshots with ”Star Dust” in the background!]
