She was heavily damaged by Flak and German fighters in October but managed to get back to her base at Thorpe Abbots (Norfolk, England) where she was repaired and soon ready for new missions. In March, 1945 she lost two engines to Flak over Germany but managed to make an emergency landing in Belgium on the way back. Miss Conduct survived the war and was flown back to the U.S. in summer 1945.

Boeing B-17G Flying Fortress

Designed to meet a US Army Air Corps requirement for a multi-engined bomber to replace the B-10, the B-17 first flew on July 18, 1935. Best known for its role in the US Army Air Forces' daylight strategic bombing campaign during World War II, the B-17 could fly high and had a long range, and was capable of defending itself from enemy fighters. It was also tough, withstanding extensive battle damage, and was capable of carrying a 6,000 lb bombload. The B-17 became one of the symbols of Allied air power, equipping 32 overseas combat groups and dropping a total of 580,631 metric tons of bombs on European targets.
