The 312th Bombardment Group (Light) was activated on March 15, 1942. In July 1942 the 312th was re-designated Bomb Group (Dive) and equipped with A-24, A-31, A-36 and P-40’s. Between October and December 1943 the group was moved to the South Pacific assigned to the 5th Air Force and again became 312th Bombardment Group (Light) using P-40’s for escort duty in New Guinea. By February of 1944 the 312th had been re-equipped with the Douglas A-20 Havoc and over the next ten months attacked airfields, bridges, troops, and supply depots. The 312th also took part in amphibious operations on New Guinea and Palau. In November 1944 the unit moved to the Philippines. Over time the Douglas Havoc 43-21904 wore the names “Miss Priss”, “Ready Teddy” and while assigned to the 388th BS/ 312th BG on October 25, 1944 it was named “Miss Pam”. When World War II ended this aircraft was abandoned on Moratai in a bone yard for the next several years before becoming scrap.Detailed cockpit with pilot figure

The A-20 Havoc was an American light bomber, attack and night fighter aircraft operated by the USAAF and Allied air forces during World War II. It was known as the Douglas Boston in Great Britain’s Royal Air Force and Royal Australian Air Force and as the DB-7 in Soviet and French Air Forces. The night fighter variant was designated P-70. The A-20 prototype was first flown in January 1939 with the first production aircraft flying on August 17, 1939. Although it was not the fastest or longest-range aircraft in its class, the A-20/DB-7 series distinguished itself as a tough and dependable combat aircraft. Production ran until September 1944 with 7,478 built in several variants (7,098 by Douglas and 380 by Boeing), almost half of which was delivered to the Soviet Union. The A-20 was retired by the U.S. Air Force in 1949.
