James Collison mission June 27, 1943

JUNE

Sunday 27

near Athens

Went on a mission to Hassini Aerodome near Athens. The mission was a success as far as I know. I had a view of the stadium in Athens-it wasn't as I'd like it to be on the ground, you see I saw it from 25,000 ft. and one can't see much at that height. It looked plenty large even from that height. We were attacked by two or four fighters. We shot down one of them-a direct hit by Piper did the trick. I flew the mission and I really worked hard-I thought the fighter was going to come right through my window. It scared the daylights out of me I might add. .......
