Capt. Chet Patterson, Suiter's flight leader, reported: "I was flying lead position in second flight at the time we were approximately 10 miles north of Emmen, Holland, when we met a head on attack of 30 plus enemy aircraft. I turned right to engage the enemy, and saw four friendly aircraft behind and below being attacked. The friendly aircraft which I identified as flown by 2nd Lt. Fleming W. Suiter, 0-743383, appeared to be shot down as he went down through the overcast. This was the last I saw of Lt. Suiter."
Lt. Suiter was reported as a prisoner in Stalag Luft I..
