Den 13. juni 1943 angreb 60 B-17 fra USAAF ubådsanlæggene i Kiel. 16 B-17 fra 95. BG fløj forrest i formationen, der allerede blev angrebet under indflyvningen
til målet. Som sædvanlig angreb de tyske jagermaskiner især den forreste del af formationen, og inden denne havde passeret målet var 7-8 B-17 fra 95. BG gået tabt.
En B-17 ude af kontrol fløj ind i en anden, og kun 6 B-17 fra 95. BG nåede tilbage til basen, hvoraf en blev ødelagt under nødlanding.

Flyet blev ramt efter passage af målet, men ingen faldskærme blev observeret, inden flyet ramte vandet. Liget af co-piloten drev senere ind på nordkysten af Lolland.

On 13 June 1943 60 B-17s from the USAAF attacked the U-boat pens in Kiel. 16 B-17s from 95th BG flew at the front of the formation which was attacked on
the bombing run to the target. As usual the German fighters particularly attacked the front of the formation, and before it had passed the target 7-8 B-17s from 95th
BG were lost.

One B-17 out of control collided with another, and only 6 B-17s from 95th BG made it back to base - and one of them was destroyed in a forced landing.

This plane was hit after it had flown over the target, but no parachutes were seen before the plane hit the water. Later the body of the Co-Pilot drifted ashore on the
north coast of Lolland. (FT 86-89-15) B17 4229702 * B17 423286 * B17 4230118 * B17 4229675 * B17 423187 * B17 4230164 all crashed in parts of the Baltic Sea.
