Description: The maintenance section of the 361st AWC history reported for the months of Nov and Dec availability rates were 60% and 67.5% respectively with a total flying time of 1,324 hours. Availability in Nov was hampered by a shortage of parts, with many of the aircraft EDP at one time. Nov also saw the unit's first accident with the loss of one aircraft. Nov and Dec were marred with three ships being shot down in major actions and extensive battle damage being done to many more. Many components damaged by enemy fire were extremely difficult to obtain.
