Army Air Force planes have dropped
their 2,00,000th ton of bombs on the Axis,
the two-millionth one being released by the
Super Fortress, “Going Jessie,” in a five
way B-29 attack on industrial cities of the
Japanese island of Honshu.
It took 34 months to drop the first million
tons, but only nine months to unload the
second million, AAF reports, giving some
idea of the speed-up in the air war.
Allowing 12 bombs to a truck, it would
take a string of vehicles standing bumper
to bumper from Boston to San Francisco
to carry them. There were some 10,000,000
bombs in all, of varying sizes.
The Japanese homeland was hit by the
100,000th ton of AAF bombs on July 4.
Cub Aircraft Praised
In reporting that life-saving facilities in
the Pacific area are at their peak in prep
aration for developments against the enemy.
Rear Admiral Richard H. Lanning, Medical
Corps, USN, has singled out for particular
praise the use of Cub airplanes in isolated
island areas for shipment of blood and other
vital supplies and for transfer of sick and
wounded to hospitals. Boding well for fu
ture naval and amphibious operations, he
said, are improvements made in air evacua
tion of casualties, shipment by air of whole
blood, deployment of newly added hospital
ships, and construction of additional fleet
and base hospitals in forward areas.
