Wreckage of B-24 Liberator 'St. Quentin Quail'

Crashed on January 2, 1944 as a result of damage incurred during an attack on the Japanese airbase of Taroa. Two of the crew members died during or as a result of the crash and were buried on Arno. Eight of the crew members survived and were housed and fed by the Marshallese on Arno Atoll from January 3 to January 16, 1944, on which date a Japanese patrol boat arrived from Taroa and captured them. The airmen were taken to Maloelap Atoll where they remained until January 20, 1944.
