    Thank you so much for the information. My Dad was the navigator and wounded after they were assigned another plane when Iza Vailable Too was down for maintenance. He always said his wounds would have been less severe if he was on Iza Vailable Too! He passed away age 94 and I believe he was the last of his crew.
