My father, Lt. James R. Smith, was radar observer aboard the P-61 called Jing-Bow Joy-Ride. With pilot Carl Absmeier, he was part of a high-scoring team for the 426th NFS, with two air-to-air victories and numerous successful intruder missions. He participated in a hazardous mission to destroy the strategically significant Yellow River Bridge even with orders to return Stateside in his pocket. He left a very detailed memoir with information about all of these exploits. This is now posted in its entirety at www.nightfighter.info. I would welcome anyone interested in the CBI, the Forgotten Theater, to visit us. We won't forget our heroic airmen! Thanks to all!
