Leavitt – originally Co-pilot with the Raymond D. Cook crew - was the Long crew’s replacement pilot on their first mission after the ditching in the North Sea and continued to be their pilot until the end of the war.

Note: Ugly Duckling 2 was probably one of the 546th Bomb Squadron’s ships, although the name does not appear in the aircraft database.
