Mst.Sgt. Joseph Francis Macone 448 Bomb Group

My dad, Joseph Macone, died in 1991. We don't know many details about him but he was proud to serve during WWII as a Bombardier. We know he also flew on a B-24 plane named the Rabduckit. He talked about being stationed at Bungay in England. My brother and I did find a photo of the plane but would like to know a little more about it and who my dad may have served with.

His obituary reads: Joseph Francis Macone was cofounder and partner in the former Macone Sporting Goods store in Concord, died Sunday in Sarasota Memorial Hospital in Florida. He was 68 and lived in Sarasota and Bristol, Maine. Mr. Macone opened the store as a bicycle shop with his brother, Ralph, after returning to his native Concord after World War II. They sold the business in 1981. A 1942 graduate of Concord High School, Mr. Macone flew 27 missions as a bombardier on a B-24 in the 448th Bomb Group in England. He was discharged from the Army Air Corps as a master sergeant.
