Correction!! Frank Lewis, my father, was hit by anti aircraft fire while dive bombing a bridge. He lost height while trying to open the stuck canopy and had to bale out without turning the plane over. He luckily missed the tailplane, landed in a tree and was picked up by Canadians. The plane crashed at Geldermalsen in Holland as recorded in ASN Wikibase. He got back to his squadron 3 days later and lived till 2005./span>
