On May 17, 1943, the "Memphis Belle" became the first 8th Air Force B-17 to complete a combat tour of duty (25 missions). Upon its return, pilot Robert K. Morgan "buzzed" his home field of Bassingbourne, England in celebration of this heroic accomplishment.
After his history-making tour with the "Belle", Capt. Morgan continued to serve. He later piloted the B-29 Superfortress "Dauntless Dotty" and led the first B-29 raid on Tokyo. In 1965 Morgan retired from the Air Force as a colonel, and died in June 2004.
