Missing Photo
Ev Blakley's "JUST-A-SNAPPIN" at Ludham after the 8 Oct 43 Bremen Mission. "JUST-A-SNAPPIN" is one of the better known planes in 100TH lore, she is remembered for bringing this crew back from Bremen on 8 OCT 43. With the A/C basle damaged, Ev Blakely and John Kidd, Group Ops Officer, who led the mission from the Co-Pilots seat, landed "JUST-A-SNAPPIN" in a field at Ludham. Damage to the hydraulic system rendered the brakes inoperative and "JUST-A-SNAPPIN" collided with a large tree. Impact was between the #1 and #2 engine. (100th Photo Archives)
