Formosa Japs Take Pot Shots at City Airman
ABOARD U.S. CARRIER TASK FORCE FLAGSHIP OFF FORMOSA, October 13 (Delayed) (AP)--Navy pilots will remember their first raid on Formosa for a number of reasons.

In the field of low-level flying, Lieutenant (junior grade) Frank Fox, 23, Eau Claire, WI will have cause to remember Formosa. He took his Avenger torpedo plane down so low that two Japs shot at him with rifles. They got one hit, too, in the wing.

Lieutenant Donald Banker's reason for remembering Formosa is a simple one. The 27-year-old Duluth, MN dive bomber pilot happened to pass over several Jap army camps. "You know what they were doing? They were holding AA practice!"
