Easy Does It Factoid - The above photo was taken in April 1944 in Louisiana and the crew reached Bassingbourn in June and received credit for their first mission on Don's birthday, July 4, 1944. " Easy Does It" was shot down by flak on it's 27th mission over Berlin on December 5, 1944. Don Almon was the person naming the plane because the call letters were LG E and was assigned to Walton's crew in August 1944. Don flew his last 11 of his 35 combat mission as Navigator in this bomber.
