nose. Anderson stated, “I fired short bursts. I could see incendiaries
bursting all over the front of the l09. The propeller flew off!
The engine cowling blew off! Then off came the canopy and
out came the pilot.” Behind Anderson was 1st Lt. Ed Simpson
flying Chamber’s White #3. He confirmed Anderson’s victory.
This victory was just the beginning for Bud, by wars end, his
contribution to the war effort meant 16 less Messerschmitt-
