B-17G Fortress “Mizpah” took a direct AAA hit in the nose on mission to Budapest, 14 Jul 1944. 2 were killed instantly but the pilot held her level long enough for crew to get out & become POW's. The aircraft crashed near Dunavecse, Hungary "Mizpah" is a type of emotional bond between two people separated, either physically or by the death of one of the persons. Mizpah means 'the Lord watch between me and thee when we are absent from one another'.
this B-17 Flying Fortress was hit by an 88mm shell while on a mission to bomb the Shell Oil refinery in Budapest on 14th July 1944.
the shell exploded in the nose, causing it to peel up and over the cockpit - just missing the tail assembly. Bombardier Kenneth W. Dudley and navigator Joseph H. Henderson were killed instantly. Incredibly, the pilot and co-pilot were able to keep the aircraft in the air for ten minutes without instruments or windshield.
All the remaining 8 crew successfully bailed out, and were captured..
