Washington - (AP) - Many a Japanese gun crew, firing at what appeared to be a lonesome and lost Yankee fighter pilot, learned that they merely had fallen for a live bait trick and signaled for their own destruction. The War Department described the ruse today in a story of how Seventh Air Force pilots solved one of the big problems of the Tinian Island invasion operations-hidden machine guns and artillery.
The Thunderbolt pilots went out in teams of four, three flying at very high altitude while the fourth cruised low over areas believed to conceal gun positions. The pilots in the upper air kept a close watch on the decoy plane, and when the Japs began firing at him they came down fast and furiously with wing guns and bombs.
Three such teams knocked out nine machine guns and three anti-aircraft guns and also bombed coastal positions in two hours time on one occasion. The department said these pilots were among those who took part in that expedition: First Lt. Melvin F. Petty, 539 Rivers St., Scranton, Pennsylvania and 2nd Lt. Charles S. Marcinko, 1132 Bedford St. Johnstown, Pennsylvania. Lt. Marcinko is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Stephen Marcinko of 1132 Bedford St., Walnut Grove. He entered the service on July 30, 1942 and was sent to the Pacific area shortly after receiving his commission on Nov. 3, 1943.
