Mizpah


MizpahMizpahB-24J-95-CO #42-100366 Mizpah, a single assembly-mission bomber of the 458th BG. Horsham St. Faith, late August 1944. Although almost every book makes mention of this aircraft as an assembly ship of the 458th BG, it is not completely true. True, Mizpah was used in a single mission as a ‘formating aircraft’ on 12th March 1945, between its 70th and 71st combat sortie (Mission #202 of the 458th BG). However the aircraft was still a standard bomber in the group because by the 25th April 1945 it had carried out 15 more combat tasks. Mizpah returned to the USA with 85 mission symbols painted on its scoreboard. The plane was salvaged by RFC at Albuquerque on 24th September 1945.
