  1. My Father, David Devere Moore was the Radar operator on the flight and he was killed along with the other 12 crew. Nov.3, 1948 was My Brother Tom’s 1st Birthday. We are the only 2 family left still living. Tom and I were the only 2 children.
    The lives of all the Crew’s Families were changed forever on that day. The effects of those deaths are felt to this day. Most, if not all these men were WW2 survivors, they lost their lives on a very simple flight, just came down too soon in just the wrong place, on just the wrong day……50 more feet of air and they may have flown out over the hill… David Devere Moore is Buried in Arlington National Cemetary, Washington DC, Section 12.
    Respectfully, Eldest Son, Terry David Moore
