Capt. Bradford V Stevens, Hood River OR, 504th Fighter Squadron. P-51D 44-13521 5Q-D "Marinell". This a/c was lost on 13 August 1944 with Lt. Myer R Winkelman, Baird TX, being killed in action.

Additional Information
There is some conjecture over the code letter applied to Marinell as to whether or not it was “B” or “D”. The main evidence is from the wartime German report J-1960. Unfortunately, the typist who typed up the translation for the MACR neglected to keep his typewriter keys clean. Here is an enlargement of the document concerned, courtesy of Jack Cook, for you to make your own mind up. My opinion, for what it is worth, is that there ought to be a marked indentation in the right-hand upright of the letter if it was a “B”.
