Next went to Dow Field, Bangor, Maine (from 14/8/44), from where the aircraft was flown overseas to the 9th AF in the UK via the Northern Ferry Route, departing the USA on 18/8/44. The aircraft record card then lists, GLUE 9AF A (Europe - 9th AF) from 16/8/44, and GLUE 9AF G (Europe - 9th AF) from 23/8/44. Entered combat with the 391st BG / 573rd BS on 13/10/44, coded T6-Q.

The aircraft flown by Lt. Kenneth L Baker which was undergoing a major overhaul was repaired and reflown. Transferred out of the group in April 1945 when the 391st BG converted to the Douglas A-26. The aircraft had flown an additional 55 combat missions as T6-X. The final entry on the aircraft record card lists, SOXO CON SAL NBD on 14/6/45. We do not know for sure what happened to this aircraft after it was transferred out of the 391st BG, but it was most probably salvaged.
