Meet Owen Bagget....

 

On March 31, 1943, the squadron was instructed to destroy a bridge at Pyinmana but before reaching their target, the B-24 bombers were attacked by Japanese fighter planes. Baggett's plane was badly hit, and the crew were ordered to bail out. As the B-24 exploded, the Japanese pilots then attacked U.S. airmen as they parachuted to earth, one plane approaching Baggett within feet, and then, nose-up and in an almost-stall, the pilot opened his canopy. Two of Baggett's crew members were killed and Baggett was wounded, who played dead in his harness, hoping the Japanese would leave him alone. Baggott claims to have shot the Japanese pilot with his pistol, becoming legendary as the only person to down a Japanese airplane with a M1911 pistol. He was later captured by the Japanese, and held for over two years. After 30 months captivity, he and 37 other POWs were liberated by 8 OSS agents who parachuted into Singapore.

I.....I feel horrible. It must have been this action that sparked the creation of the Parachuting Sniper School in Australia.
