  1. He flew through a billboard! Before you say it was made from balsa wood, the edges were stout lumber that could shear a wing off. As it is, the windshield blew out, lucky for him, he had installed the front part of a canopy from another WWII plane around the pilots seat, can’t remember which one. He also lost one engine, and the other was running very rough. He made it back and made a single engine emergency landing!
