This was a confusing sheet to get the details close to being right. It's obvious that Kits-World doesn't do a lot of in-depth research for their sheets. Or maybe I'm just used to having an abundance of resources for info? In any case, in "Out of the Desert" by John E. Blundell, it clearly describes "The Arkansas Traveler" as being the aircraft severely damaged and landing at Malta. He should know; He was on board of her at the time! Meanwhile the aircraft said to be destroyed by paratrooper sappers, using incendiary bombs, was earlier than than mission. Thus version 1 & 2 should be flipped around. This sheet only mentions the pilot of one craft, being Clarence Gooden, however, the pilot of "The Arkansas Traveler" was Lt. William Bacon. Fortunately this book provided a guideline of where their unit was stationed and approximately when. By all means, if I got any of the details wrong, please correct the data I've entered. Thanks!
