From Jim Dalby:
"On March 11, 1944 Glenn Carroll (my room mate) landed #86 in a river at night. It's an interesting story for some other time. Art Pendergast took some mechanics and helpers to the landing site. The nose of the aircraft was out of the water on a sand bar. Using elephants to carry new propellers, tools and gasoline etc. Prendergast repaired the airplane towed it to a 800 foot sandy strip cut out of the jungle where Billy McDonald and he took off successfully."
