Missing in Action

Missing in Action
Bill Spinning was a lead bombardier stationed at Polebrook, England with the 8th Air Force, 351st Bomb Group, 509th Bomb Squadron. On his 9th mission, he and his crew were shot down while on a raid to Frankfurt, Germany. They had been hit by flak, the pilot had to lower his wheels to show he could no longer stay in formation. After making it back almost to the English Channel, Kentucky Babe was attacked by FW-190’s in the Somme region in France. With the plane going down all crew were told to jump. This is my father’s story of escaping and evading the Nazi’s with the help of the French Underground.
