Captain Paul M. Hall struck the ground during a strafing attack while on a mission near Milan, Italy. He successfully flew the vibrating aircraft 150 miles back to his airfield at Grosseto, Italy.

THE JUG WAS BUILT TOUGH: Hit the ground and bounce back into the air, and still able to fly back to base amazing

No way this aricraft struck the ground and flew back to home base. Probably it was a belly landing upon returning to its home base that caused all of these damages.
