Dean wrote me this e-mail about Mac Reeves…
You may be interested to know that Mac Reeves sent a radio transmission to his fellow pilots moments after he had been attacked by enemy airplanes. He told them that his arm had been completely shot off and that he had no choice but to ride the airplane in. (he could not get out and he could not fly it). He wished them well and he said it was a privilege flying with them.
Mac Reeves does not have a grandson to talk about him or remembering him by like Greg Bell and Colin Forsyth have.
As a footnote, Mac Reeves would die just a few weeks after that picture was taken.
