    My uncle, Col. Wayne E. Thurman flew this bomber often when he was Deputy Commander and for two short times, Commander, of the 99th bomb Group. One of my favorite photos was taken of him flying El Diablo on the way to a successful bombing raid on the Weiner-Newustad Messerschmidt airplane factories in Austria.
