					100th Bomb Group, Thorpe Abbotts (Station 139), Norfolk 2Jun43, 
					Named *Pasaden Nena/Torchy*--Named after the wife of the first 
					navigator because of her red hair.    Failed to return from a mission to the Caudron-Renault 
					factory at Paris, France 3Sep43 (1KIA:2POW:7EVD). When the formation reached Paris, 
					the target was obscured by clouds so diverted to an alternate target, the Luftwaffe 
					airfield at Beaumont Le Roger near Paris. En route to the target, halfway between 
					Paris and Chartres, the plane was hit by flak. No.1 engine went out completely and the 
					bomber dropped behind the formation. Flak or an incendiary shell started a fire 
					between No.1 and No.2 engines. Two Bf 109 fighters made one pass when the engineer 
					reported a fire then the whole bottom was shot out of the pilots cabin. The crew bailed 
					out before the aircraft crashed; the tail gunner was killed when he became entangled
				 	in the tail wreckage as the plane disintegrated before it crashed at Cerny, Essonne, France
				30036 (MSN 5150) Accepted by USAAF 28Mar43. United Air Lines, Modification Center #10, 
					Cheyenne Municipal Airport, WY 2Apr43. 384th Bomb Group, Sioux City AAB, IA 13Apr43. 
					Departed to Kearney Field, NB for overseas processing 3May43. Staging Base, 
					21st Bomb Wing, Kearney Field, NB. Departed late May43 en route to Grafton Underwood, 
					England via North Atlantic route. North Atlantic Wing, Air Transport Command, Dow Field, 
					Bangor, ME 30May43. 546th Bomb Squadron, 384th Bomb Group, Grafton Underwood 
					(Station 106), Northamptonshire 8Jun43. The aircraft was involved in a mid-air collision 
					with B-17F 42-30131 during a practice flight 12Jun43 (5KIS). They were two of sixteen 
					bombers which were landing out of their formation on return to base at Grafton Underwood. 
					Initial confusion on the correct landing runway had been resolved but had caused these 
					two aircraft to go-around for another attempt because of poor spacing. 42-30036 is 
					believed to have bounced during its first attempt to land and was going around the pattern 
					at a lower level than 42-30131 which was now above it on base leg by about 1,000ft. 
					They both turned final about the same time without the pilots seeing the other aircraft. 
					The control tower was showing a red light to 42-30131 but this was not observed by the 
					crew. A call from the tower to ‘pull up’ was misheard and both aircraft pulled up about 
					the same time. The tail of 42-30036 hit the nose and then No.2 engine of the upper aircraft. 
					Momentarily locked together, the propeller sliced through the tail of this aircraft, cutting off 
					the vertical stabiliser a few feet forward of the fin. This bomber reared straight up,
					fell off on its left wing and headed nose down for the ground where it exploded in flames 
					on impact. {nil missions}. Salvaged 12Jun43
				30037 (MSN 5151) Accepted by USAAF 28Mar43. United Air Lines, Modification Center #10, 
					Cheyenne Municipal Airport, WY 2Apr43. Combat Crew Training School, Casper Field, WY 4Apr43. 
					384th Bomb Group, Sioux City AAB, IA 13Apr43. Departed to Kearney Field, NB for overseas 
					processing 3May43. Staging Base, 21st Bomb Wing, Kearney Field, NB. Departed late May43 
					en route to Grafton Underwood, England via North Atlantic route. North Atlantic Wing, 
					Air Transport Command, Dow Field, Bangor, ME 24May43. 546th Bomb Squadron [BK*F], 
					384th Bomb Group, Grafton Underwood (Station 106), Northamptonshire 29May43. 
					{first combat mission 26Jun43}. Failed to return from a mission to a Luftwaffe airfield 
					at Villacoublay, France 26Jun43 (10POW). When the plane crossed the French coast it was 
					struck by flak between the No.3 engine and its firewall. The propeller was lost and the engine 
					caught fire. The pilot dove the plane in an effort to put the fire out and then leveled out. 
					This maneuver didn't work and No.3 engine fell off the wing. Control of No.4 engine was lost, 
					probably caused by an attack by enemy fighters. The crew was ordered to bail out and 
					six crew members jumped out of the plane. A Bf 109 pulled up on the right wing tip.
					The pilot had landing gear and flaps down in an effort to slow his fighter enough to stay 
					next to the slowing bomber. At this point, the bombardier woke up; he had probably been 
					hit by No.3 propeller when it spun off and hit the fuselage. Seeing the German fighter, he began 
					to fire at it and caused it to fall away. The German fighters then renewed their attacks. 
					The bomber suffered through several head-on attacks. One of these shot out the windscreen 
					on the left side and the pilot was hit very badly. Shot down by Ltn Fritz Karch of II./JG2 flying 
					a Bf 109G-6. The plane crash landed at Saint-Gatien-des-Bois airfield, Deauville, France. 
					The forward fuselage was destroyed by fire during the crash. {1 mission}
					Pieces of this aircraft were displayed in a
					museum established at Paris-Nanterre by occupying German forces.

					349th Bomb Squadron, 100th Bomb Group, Thorpe Abbotts (Station 139), 
					Norfolk 9Jun43. Named*Oh Nausea*– reputed to have aborted every mission 
					on which it had flown and never dropped a bomb on a target prior to this mission. 
					Failed to return from a shuttle mission to the Messerschmitt aircraft factories at 
					Regensburg, Germany 17Aug43 (10POW). The aircraft lost one engine just after 			
					crossing the enemy coast early in mission and a second at the target. Realizing 
					they probably could not reach Africa but at no time did they consider Switzerland. 
					Had one bomb hang up over target and tried to release it over a small airfield
					 near the Brenner Pass but it wouldn't go. Later released it manually over the 
					Mediterranean. Dropped to 500ft and threw out everything not nailed down. 
					Just north of Naples the aircraft turned for Sicily because at briefing had been 
					told Sicily would fall that day. About 90 miles from Sicily the aircraft lost a third engine. 
					The pilot shut down the remaining engine and ditched. The aircraft floated for about 
					an hour and a half. The crew were picked up next morning by Germans in a flying boat.

				30043 (MSN 5157) Accepted by USAAF 29Mar43. United Air Lines, Modification Center #10, 
					Cheyenne Municipal Airport, WY 3Apr43. 384th Bomb Group, Sioux City AAB, IA 14Apr43. 
					Departed to Kearney Field, NB for overseas processing 3May43. Staging Base, 
					21st Bomb Wing, Kearney Field, NB. Departed late May43 en route to Grafton Underwood, 
					England via North Atlantic route. North Atlantic Wing, Air Transport Command, 
					Dow Field, Bangor, ME 23May43. 547th Bomb Squadron [SO*V], 384th Bomb Group, 
					Grafton Underwood (Station 106), Northamptonshire 29May43.  Named *Ruthless*
					{first combat mission 22Jun43}. Fitted with Gee-H radio navigation system equipment. 
					Battle damaged on a mission to a roller bearing factory at Stuttgart, Germany 6Sep43. 
					From the Initial Point until leaving the target area, there was a complete undercast 
					except for small sparse patches of farm land. This group went over the target area twice 
					without dropping their bombs. Bombs were finally dropped on Achern, a small town 18km 
					southwest of Baden-Baden, Germany. Having spent too long over the target, the formation 
					was beginning to realise that fuel exhaustion would likely lead to many not being 
					able to return to base. Force landed at RAF West Malling, Kent (10RTD). Failed to return 
					from a mission to industrial areas at Frankfurt am Main, Germany 4Oct43 (10RTD). 
					The pilot took the plane up for a test spin, it had just had its engines overhauled and only 
					had about ten flight hours on them. When he returned the pilot decided that they were 
					not going to have enough fuel for the mission. The pilot saw the ground crew chief 
					passing by and asked for more fuel for the plane. At first the chief said “Can’t, you know 
					everyone gets an allotment of 3000 gallons”. The pilot pleaded with the crew chief to give 
					them a break and the chief relented. The chief sent the ground crew to the wing to start 
					filling the tanks. As the ground crew began hooking up to the wing tanks a young engineering 
					Lieutenant came riding by on a bicycle. He stopped and asked them why they were getting fuel. 
					The pilot told him that he wanted a little extra so that they can get back home. The young 
					engineering lieutenant officiously said, “You know what the orders are” and he waved the 
					ground crew off the plane. In those precious few minutes the ground crew probably only 
					put in an extra 50-60 gallons of gasoline before they disconnected. A B-17 burned fifty gallons 
					or more an hour for each engine or approximately 200 gallons per hour. ‘Ruthless’ got an extra
					fifteeen minutes. With only a little extra fuel in their wing tanks the crew of ‘Ruthless’ took 
					off for the raid on Frankfurt. After the plane made it to the target and dropped its bombs 
					the pilot cut out the two outboard engines to conserve fuel and were going to go home
					on the two inboard engines. The pilot tried as best as he could to keep up with the squadron 
					but with flying on only two engines the plane was soon lagging behind. As it limped back 
					home it was again flying over Belgium. The pilot had given the order to get rid of everything 
					that was not nailed down. The crew threw out everything, jackets, boots, rags, plane parts, 
					anything to make the plane lighter to conserve fuel. By that time the crew happened to see 
					five or six Spitfires flying alongside of them; they must have realised that the bomber 
					was in trouble. The bomber continued to putter on home, the crew feeling a little better with 
					having an escort to protect them. They flew over the North Sea to where the English Channel 
					meets. The co-pilot wanted the pilot to go up over the white cliffs of Dover, but the fuel was 
					almost gone and they were losing altitude, therefore there was no chance of clearing the cliffs. 
					The pilot battled to keep the bomber airborne; with resignation, he told everyone to take their 
					ditching positions. The aft crew went up to the radio room and took their positions. Then they 
					heard a hissing sound as the tail of the B-17 started to drag on top of the water. The plane hit 
					the water hard. The life rafts had deployed and were tethered to the side of the plane by the wing. 
					The Spitfires continued to circle in the air to guard the men in the life rafts. A short distance 
					away an English trawler HM Drifter (the English used it for a radar picket boat) was coming 
					toward them. They were coming to pick them up. The sailors got the crew on board and below 
					deck. The picket boat could not leave its station to return the crew to land so it radioed for 
					another boat. The Royal Air Force sent out a 40-foot motorboat ‘Lord Keith’ made out of mahogany. 
					The next morning the crew was flown back to Grafton Underwood in a Douglas C-47. {18 missions}.

					the formation was swarmed by a large force of enemy aircraft for an estimated forty-five minutes 
					of vicious fighting. By the time their friendly fighter escorts arrived to drive off the Luftwaffe, 
					the damage had already been done. One Bf 109 collided with B-17F 42-30723. The collision 
					occurred on the aircraft’s left wing with flames erupting throughout the plane. The plane exploded 
					in mid-air after going into a steep spiral. It has been speculated that "Sweater Girl" also was 
					damaged by this mid-air collision but surviving crew members report that the aircraft was under 
					heavy flak followed by fighter attacks and was severly damaged before the crew was ordered 
					to bail out. There is no mention from crew reports that their plane sustained any damage from

					Crew members, assisted by airport employees, Naval Air Cadets, state troopers and scores of

					be feathered and the tail controls were damaged. The tail Gunner was badly wounded and 
					then the radio system failed. The engineer/top turret gunner went to the rear of the plane to
					inform the other gunners of the bail out instructions from the pilot. As he was passing through 
					the bomb bay the aircraft went into a crash dive. The ball turret gunner was trapped in the 
					ball turret. The co-pilot was injured and assisted the pilot on an attempt to maintain control 
					of the aircraft so that the crew could bail out. The two pilots were to set-up the AFCE 
					(Automatic Flight Control Equipment) and attempt to return to England. The pilot was
					then injured by the explosion of a cannon shell; the main portion of the cannon blast was in 
					the area of the pilot and co-pilots seats. As the bombardier and navigator were bailing out, 
					the plane went into a vertical dive with the right wing in flames and breaking off. 
					Shot down by an enemy Ju 88 fighter of 3./ ZG 1 which knocked off the tail. Exploded and

					Retained the 95th Bomb Group [B] tail symbol. Flown on a mission to Ghent, Belgium 6Jan45 (1INJ:9RTD). 
					The crew was instructed to take off prior to the main force of planes. The weather over England 
					was extremely bad as the crew headed for their destination over Ghent, Belgium. The plane cleared 
					the overcast and ascended to its assigned 27,000ft altitude. The weather worsened and word
					 came over the radio that the mission had been scrubbed and they were to return to base; 
					the other planes never took off. The plane was heading for home when suddenly, and without 
					warning, all their navigational aids stopped functioning; Gee box, compass, radio, 
					all communication devices gone. The crew was hopelessly lost. With no way of knowing exactly 
					where they were, they headed west, by the sun, dropping down until they sighted land at 500 feet. 
					They started following the coastline and soon spotted what they thought were some Channel Islands 
					that were still in German hands. As the plane circled, looking for a place to land, it encountered a 
					heavy barrage of anti-aircraft fire that promptly knocked out the No.2 engine. The propeller was 
					feathered and the plane left the hostile area. After flying for two hours, the crew jettisoned 
					everything, not tied down, in an attempt to preserve their diminishing fuel supply. They 
					sighted a Douglas C-47 and followed it for a while, hoping to find land, but soon gave 
					up thinking they might be headed out into the North Sea where they had been told of a 
					crew ditching and freezing to death in thirty minutes. The crew considered going back to the 
					island and try to land knowing that they would become prisoners of war. Although desperate,
					no one thought this to be a good idea. Darkness was closing in fast and with only about an 
					hour and a half of fuel supply left they spotted a convoy of ships in the English Channel. 
					The crew now had two options; they could ditch near one of the ships in the convoy, 
					hoping to survive the ditching and be picked up by one of the ships or they could continue 
					flying hoping to spot a place to land before their fast dwindling fuel supply ran out. 
					The crew unanimously agreed to ditch. They signaled to the convoy that they were coming 
					in but could not make out the reply. The crew assumed their ditching positions as the pilot 
					smoothly set the Fortress down in the English Channel southwest of Guernsey, Channel Islands. 
					Water came gushing into the radio room as the crew successfully exited the ditched plane
					only to find that both dinghies were stuck in their compartments and would not eject automatically. 
					After manually pulling them free, they inflated and the crew climbed in, successfully, and 
					began paddling a safe distance from the plane toward one of the ships in the convoy. 
					They cleared the plane in about forty seconds before it sank. A lifeboat was sent out 
					from one of the ships to pick them up. At this point, the crew did not know if the ship crews 
					were British or German as they all wore black turtleneck sweaters. With their 45's at the 
					ready their fears were soon alleviated upon leaming that the rescuers were British. As they were 
					being pulled aboard the Royal Navy trawler HMS Gweal, a pool of blood was noticed in one of the 
					dinghies and upon further investigation it was found that the toggalier was bleeding profusely 
					a nasty cut on his hand, the only casualty from the long ordeal. The crew was taken to Plymouth, 
					arriving the following morning and later flown back to Mendlesham. Salvaged 6Jan45

					on the correct landing runway had been resolved but had caused these two aircraft to go-around 
					for another attempt because of poor spacing. 42-30036 is believed to have bounced during 
					its first attempt to land and was going around the pattern at a lower level than 42-30131 
					which was now above it on base leg by about 1,000ft. They both turned final about the same time

					The bomber had been badly hit by enemy fighters en route to Schweinfurt. Most of the bomb 
					doors had been blown away and the oxygen system so badly damaged that some of the crew 
					members started to pass out. The pilot remained with the group long enough to bomb, 
					then peeled off and dived hard, still under fighter attack, down to tree-top level where the crew 
					could breathe more easily. With the main force returning to England by a northerly route, 
					the pilot hoped to stay out of trouble by taking a southerly route. The aircraft was then 
					attacked by a Dornier 217 from the night fighter training unit NJG 101 which followed it for 
					about 30 minutes doing damage to the wings. The bomber passed directly over Sandhofen 
					airfield on the outskirts of Mannheim, shooting up the airfield as it passed. Both tail guns 
					burnt out and the top turret was hit and jammed. The pilot was injured but the main problem 
					was now a big hole blown in a fuel tank. From earlier damage, the fuel transfer system was 
					inoperative. The Dornier was chased off by the ball turret gunner but the chances of the crew 
					reaching England were now slim. They were offered a chance to head for Switzerland but 
					declined, hoping to at least reach the coast, confident in their chances of rescue by RAF 
					Air-Sea Rescue launches. The aircraft flew on for another 180 miles before the fuel was 
					exhausted. The aircraft was crash landed in a field between Sissonne and Montcornet, 
					about twenty miles north of Reims, France where the crew attempted to set fire to and 
					destroy their aircraft but the incendiary bombs failed to work. {2 missions}.

					visiblity frustrated the attack and the group diverted to Hamburg where the plane suffered battle 
					damage. Both engines on the left wing had been disabled and the propellers feathered 
					causing the plane to fall back out of formation. A third engine failed as the bomber started 
					back over the North Sea. The crew jettisoned unneceesary equipment to lessen the weight 
					and reduce the rate of descent. Below the clouds and close to the waves, the failed third engine 
					picked up and produced some power. This enabled the pilots to regain some altitude and 
					held steady at 300 feet until reaching the sandy shores of Norfolk. The pilot elected to try 
					for a landing at Snetterton Heath and joined the circuit with other returning bombers. 
					On final approach, the pilot may have had to manoeuvre to avoid another plane because 
					the plane suddenly reared up, stalled and dove into the ground. An engine was torn off and 
					bounced into the radio room hatch, killing three airmen. The forward section finished upside 
					down facing towards the torn off tail. The bomber crashed on the A11 road adjacent to the 
					airfield at Snetterton Heath. Salvaged 15Dec43. .

					Force base at Bône, Algeria. Later positioned to Telergma, Algeria. On return to England, operated a 
					mission to a Luftwaffe air depot at Mérignac, Bordeaux, France 24Aug43 (2WIA:10RTD). Colonel David, 
					Commander of the 388th Bomb Group, was in the co-pilot's seat as Command Pilot of the formation. 
					The Group had finished bombing the Luftwaffe airfield near Bordeaux and were headed home over the 
					Bay of Biscay. Enemy fighters made a furious attack. Colonel David saw a German fighter peel off to 
					the right and gasoline pouring from a right wing tank; the Fortress had been hit by 20mm cannon shells.
					At almost the same instant bullets slashed into the cockpit from a head-on attack, one of them wounding 
					the pilot in the leg, others destroying the hydraulic system and an oxygen tank. Colonel David found 
					himself in a sea of flames that burned his hair, face and hands, and shriveled his flying jacket. For some 
					seconds the plane flew wild then he put the plane into a dive to get down close to the water so he 
					could ditch the aircraft; it was too far off shore to have any chance if the crew bailed out at altitude. 
					While the plane dropped from 21,000ft down to 10,000ft, the fire burned itself out and the bomber was 
					pulled out of its dive. The wings stayed on, the plane flew level and the leaking gasoline tank did not 
					explode. Enemy fighters returned to the attack, aiming their tracers at the flood of gasoline streaming 
					from the bomber’s wing. Colonel David, alone in the cockpit, flew evasive action. In a twenty minute 
					battle, the gunners knocked down four of the German planes and drove off the rest. The wounded 
					engineer succeeded in transferring gasoline out of the damaged tank and the torrent of escaping fuel 
					stopped. It was Colonel David in the pilot’s seat and the bombardier in the co-pilot’s place who 
					brought the plane to a safe landing at Knettishall. Battle damaged on an Operation Starkey mission 
					to the industrial area of Paris, France 9Sep43 (1WIA:9RTD). The briefed route was followed to the I.P. 
					when the lead bombardier was hit by flak and unable to complete the bomb run on the primary target. 
					There was cloud cover over the secondary target which was the Luftwaffe airfield at Beaumont Sur Oise, 
					northwest of Paris. The bombardier was wounded by flak. Major battle damage on a mission to the ball 
					bearing factories at Schweinfurt, Germany 14Oct43. En route to the target area, the bomber formation 
					was repeatedly attacked by a large number of Luftwaffe fighters. After the target, the Group turned and 
					headed westward for England. German fighters, having landed and refueled, attacked again until, finally, 
					the bombers reached the coastline of western Europe and relative safety. Battle damaged on a Crossbow 
					mission to a German V-weapon site on the Cherbourg peninsula, France 26Mar44 (1WIA:9RTD). Flak over 
					the city of Cherbourg was intense, the ball turret gunner was wounded by flak. Failed to return from a 
					mission to a Luftwaffe air depot at Mérignac, Bordeaux, France 27Mar44 (5KIA:3POW:2EVD). A flare 
					set off a fire in the radio room just before reaching the target. The bomber left the formation, circled, 
					and finally went into a steep dive. Six parachutes were seen before the aircraft crashed at La Gombretiere,

					Named IMPATIENT VIRGIN / IZA BLUE.  {first combat mission 24Jul43}. Major battle damage on a 
					mission to the Continental Gummi-Werke synthetic rubber factory at Hanover, Germany 26Jul43 (10RTD). 
					The Group was subjected to continual fighter attacks the entire route; these attacks broke off when the 
					Group was back over the North Sea on the way home. Over the target a mid-air collision took place when 
					the pilot was injured by a 20mm shell explosion in the cockpit. While changing seats with the co-pilot, 
					the plane weaved up and hit the tail of B-17F 42-3289 which took off the top half of the vertical stabiliser. 
					About forty-five minutes after the collision and trying to make it back, even with continued fighter attacks, 
					the co-pilot sent a message back to the crew to bail out. The intercom was out, but by that time they had 
					thrown out some of the parachutes. The pilot was unable to bail out because his chute was damaged 
					by the 20mm shell. The co-pilot was able to bring the aircraft back to England for a forced landing at 
					RAF Foulsham, Norfolk. The aircraft landed about mid way down the runway and the brakes held for a 
					moment, enough to straighten the plane out and then gave way and it went off the end of the runway 
					onto the grass. This is some of the battle damage: 20mm shell exploded in the right wing behind No.3 engine; 
					flak destroyed half of the left aileron; a 20mm shell exploded in the cockpit which injured the pilot 
					and engineer; the vertical fin half torn off; a 20mm shell hit in the radio room and numerous flak holes 
					in the aircraft; the oxygen system in the front half of the plane was out; eight of the plane's guns would 
					not fire. Battle damaged on a mission to the Kugelfischer-Georg-Schäfer ball bearing factory at 
					Schweinfurt, Germany 14Oct43 (10RTD). Enemy fighters were encountered near Eupen, Belgium on the 
					route in, all the way to the target, and back to the French Coast. Flak was moderate to intense along the 
					route but gave the most trouble over the target area. The lead bombardier was unable to see a 
					clear view of the target caused by smoke from previous bombing. He set his bomb sight on the 
					railway bridge over the Main river so that the bombs struck the eastern end of the marshalling yards. 
					On return in bad weather, eventually getting lost until spotting a small airfield near Lichfield, Staffordshire, 
					and needed seven attempts to land in a meadow beyond the runway, hitting trees and wrecked the 
					aircraft. {6 missions}. Salvaged.

					damaged on a mission to the aircraft industries at Warnemünde, Germany 25Jul43 (10RTD). 
					The target was covered by clouds and no bombs were dropped. The Combat Wing proceeded 
					out into the Baltic Sea. About five minutes after leaving the target area, the lead bombardier of the 
					388th Bomb Group spotted a good target of opportunity, the Luftwaffe airfield at Rerik-West, 
					near the Wustrow peninsula. Struck by flak on return from the target, an engine failed and the 
					propeller feathered. Rapidly using fuel to maintain protection from the Group, the plane ran 
					out of fuel on the Knettishall crosswind at 800 feet. But the pilot was able to dead stick into 
					the nearby airfield of RAF East Wretham, Thetford, Norfolk that had been used by British bombers. 
					The green gear lights came on just as the plane touched down (the pilot initially ordered "gear up", 
					predicting a crash landing). The three overworked engines were replaced but, because of the lack of 
					spares, the flak damaged No.1 engine was repaired and recertified for flight. Battle damaged on a 
					mission to the Gerhard Fieseler Werke (GFW) aircraft works at Waldau, Kassel, Germany 30Jul43 (10RTD). 
					A large force of enemy fighters was encountered along the route from the Dutch coast to the 
					target and out, but broke off the attacks over the target area. Flak was moderate over the route, 
					but intense and accurate over the target. Further flak was encountered on return over Antwerp. 
					Participated in a shuttle mission to the Messerschmitt aircraft factories at Regensburg, Germany 17Aug43. 
					After the target, the bomber turned south and headed for the Twelfth Air Force base at Bône, Algeria. 
					While flying over the Mediterranean, the crew determined that they were running low on fuel. 
					They decided to leave the formation and fly a more direct route to reach Bône. As a result, 
					this bomber arrived at the Algerian airfield before the rest of the bombers. They were met by a 
					contingent of high-ranking officers who were expecting to see the mission leader, 
					Brigadier General Curtis LeMay, step out of the plane. The officials seemed somewhat startled to see 
					a Lieutenant crawl out of the bomber’s hatch to greet them instead. On return to England, operated 
					a mission to a Luftwaffe air depot at Mérignac, Bordeaux, France 24Aug43. The bomber suffered 
					battle damage and, with fuel exhaustion, the engines quit while the aircraft was preparing to land at base. 
					Crash landed one mile east of Stanton, south of Knettishall, Suffolk. {8 missions}. Salvaged 31Aug43..
					No serious injuries to crew.  Was reported as being captured by Luftwaffe.  
					It is probable that this aircraft was not captured.  There is photographic 
					and written evidence which appears to prove that aircraft
					was wrecked when bellylanded near Stanton, England Aug 24, 1943 after running

					was damaged by flak and the wings were dented by empty shell cases ejected from other bombers. 
					En route to Africa, the plane passed over the Alps when the oxygen ran out and it had to leave formation 
					for a lower altitude. Then an engine stopped with fuel exhaustion. Fuel was transferred from another 
					tank but that engine then stopped. The plane force landed on a dried up lake bed in Algeria. 
					Spotting flares in the distance, the crew found two gunners and a pilot of two B-17s forced down

					Failed to return from a mission to the Focke-Wulf aircraft factory at Pozna?, Poland 20Feb44 (10POW). 
					Heavy cloud cover over Pozna? forced the formation to divert to their secondary target, the Heinkel

					that he could not transfer fuel from the ‘Tokyo’ fuel tanks. The reserve tanks had been hit by flak over 
					the target and fuel had been seen pouring out. Shortly after, the bomber left the formation and the 
					pilot said that he would try to get to Sweden. The pilots made a perfect wheels up-landing at Tirstrup, 
					Denmark, and all of the crew could leave the plane unharmed. The Americans were very disappointed 
					when they learned from Danes crowding in that they had landed in Denmark. The crew removed a 
					machine gun and a sack of oranges from the plane and set it on fire. Shortly afterwards the Germans 
					arrived, but they could not prevent the plane from burning down completely. The ten Americans went 
					on towards the coast, but they left a clear track of orange peels. As no oranges were sold in either 
					Denmark or Germany, the Germans just had to follow the track, and by the evening six Americans 
					were captured at Hyllested, about 10km from the site of the forced landing. The remaining four airmen

					Captain Homer Wilson Claymore was the first captain of the Boeing; he was a Lakota Sioux, 
					his Lakota Sioux name was Lone Ghost. He wrote to his older brother Luther asking what he should 
					call his plane. The answer was simple: "Name the plane after the great Indian Sioux warrior Crazy Horse." 
					Claymore painted the caricature of the Sioux warrior himself on the nose of the plane.
					Failed to return from a mission to a Luftwaffe airfield at Diepholz, 
					Germany 21Feb44 (1KIA:9POW:3EVD). Damaged by flak over the target, two engines were disabled 
					but unable to feather one of the propellers. The plane dropped out of formation and on the return
					flight home was attacked by Fw 190 fighters. Over Holland, north-edge of Apeldoorn crew started 
					to jump out; the pilot held the aircraft level for them. Crashed in the IJsselmeer, opposite the hamlet

					Were Captured and Became POWs. Released in 1945. (1) Crewman Was Shot By German Soldiers When 
					Caught Hiding With Dutch People. (3) Crew Evaded Capture.  MACR 2471 and 2470
					The wreck of the bomber was initially visible in the water because it came down
					 on a sand-ridge named 'Spiek', with only 1,20 meter of water there (4 ft). This was right in 
					front of a German light flak training range. They used this stretch of water to shoot on floating 
					targets pulled by small tugboats. Near the wreck it was too shallow for a large recovery ship, 
					therefore the wreck of the B-17 was not recovered. The wreck was shot up for target practice. 
					The remains of the bomber were not visible anymore in the murky water. Away from the shipping lanes,
					on a shallow spot that was avoided by boats, the wreck site was forgotten. The remains of this aircraft 
					were discovered in the summer of 1970 during a public works reclamation project in the area. 
					Members of the Dutch Air Force recovered several pieces of this aircraft including a propellor blade 
					and hub, some of the radar equipment, and varied pieces of airframe. Several hundred pounds 
					were crated by the Dutch military and sent back to the United States to McDonnell-Douglas, 
					St. Louis, MO, to take part in a special diagnotic testing and evaluation program to test the 
					effects of harsh exposure upon aerospace materials. A testing and evaluations branch at MD 
					had been studying pieces of WWII aircraft components salvaged from remote crash sites 
					in different climate zones. At the end of the testing and evaluation study, all recovered items 
					were slated for disposal. A few items were to be given to museums for display. The bulk of the test 
					items, however, were deemed as nothing other than scrap and were to have been destroyed. 
					A historically minded McDonnell-Douglas engineer involved in the testing program decided 
					instead to filter them directly to another "museum" - located in his suburban home's basement 
					and garage. He kept them safe and sound until he passed away 30 years later. The items are 
					believed to be displayed in a museum near Mesa, AZ

					Shot down by Lt Alfred Grislawski in Bf 109G-5/R-6 of JG 50/1 . 
					One engine was shut down and the propeller feathered but the other engine continued to produce power. 
					The aircraft was dropping back from formation and unable to continue to the target. The pilot turned 
					south to follow the River Rhine to Switzerland. Further enemy fighter attacks damaged the internal 
					communications between crew members, particularly the gunners in the rear. With the co-pilot 
					injured and the second engine now failed, the pilot lowered the landing gear as a sign of surrender. 
					Unable to advise the gunners, they continued to fire at the enemy fighters which fought back 
					ferociously causing more damage to the bomber. By the time that the gunners had been 
					appraised of the situation, the aircraft was too low to bail out but two gunners did jump, 
					one being killed as he was too low for his parachute to open. The co-pilot regained 
					consciousness to find himself alone in the cockpit. The other officers were down at the 
					escape hatch when the co-pilot managed to bring the aircraft back under control just 
					as it hit the top of some trees, knocking off the landing gear. Fortunately, the bomber was 
					heading for an open field and a haystack which it went through destroying it in a flurry of hay.
					The plane stopped but had been broken in two from which the remaining crew emerged 
					without serious injury. The crew was inexperienced and only on their second combat mission.

					Crossing the Danish coast en route to the target, a few bursts of flak caused some holes in the 
					wings. Nearing Gdynia, a couple of bursts exploded and did some damage behind No.3 engine 
					and there was a ragged place out on the aileron. Battle damaged on a mission to the Kugelfischer-
					Georg-Schäfer ball bearing factory at Schweinfurt, Germany 14Oct43 (10RTD). Enemy fighters 
					were encountered near Eupen, Belgium on the route in, all the way to the target, and back to the 
					French Coast. Flak was moderate to intense along the route but gave the most trouble over the 
					target area. The lead bombardier was unable to see a clear view of the target caused by smoke 
					from previous bombing. He set his bomb sight on the railway bridge over the Main river 
					so that the bombs struck the eastern end of the marshalling yards. On return, force landed 
					at RAF Kenley, Kent. Failed to return from a mission to the port at Bremen, Germany 26Nov43 (10KIA). 
					As the formation made a sharp turn after the target, an unrecognized B-17 with a triangle 
					on its tail and "FC 2" on its right waist began weaving around the formation. It slammed 
					into this plane and sheared off the tail. The mystery plane, initially thought to be a 
					German-captured Fortress employing ramming tactics, was later identified as B-17G 42-37838 
					of the 401st Bomb Group, flying on their first mission. The vertical stabiliser of #317 knocked 
					off the ball turret of #838, sending the gunner to his death. The tail section of #317

					at Frankfurt am Main, Germany 29Jan44. The plane was over Germany when the ball turret 
					gunner reported a B-17 underneath getting too close. Suddenly there was a tremendous 
					jolt; it had been rammed by the other plane, B-17F 42-30334. The pilot ordered the crew 
					to bail out. The enlisted men tried to open the entry door but it wouldn’t budge. 
					Then the co-pilot called to cancel the bail out order. One of the engines was smoking but 
					the propeller was feathered. The plane couldn’t keep up with the formation and so turned 
					back for England. The pilot dropped down low over the tree tops to avoid German fighters. 
					It landed at RAF Woodbridge emergency landing airfield, Suffolk. Battle damaged on a

					damaged during a mission to the industrial area of Emden, Germany 2Oct43. Battle damaged 
					on a mission to railway installations at Münster, Germany 10Oct43. As they approached 
					the city, the formation was swarmed by a large force of enemy aircraft for an estimated 
					forty-five minutes of vicious fighting. By the time their friendly fighter escorts arrived to 
					drive off the Luftwaffe, the damage had already been done. The No.3 engine was struck by 
					flak before reaching the target and began trailing smoke. The plane lost altitude but the 
					pilot made a solo run to bomb the target. Turning for home and alone, the bomber made 
					an easy target for the German fighters. The pilot dived down into cloud cover at 16,000ft. 
					A fighter was shot down by the top turret gunner. Entering another bank of cloud at 3,000ft, 
					by this time the No.4 engine was on fire as the bomber entered Dutch airspace. Avoiding the 
					flak defences around Rotterdam, the pilot headed out across the North Sea, so low that salt 
					spray was soaking the waist gunners. With the fire still raging, the pilot prepared the crew for
					ditching. Just then he spotted a large rolling wave. Gambling that it might extinguish the fire, 
					the pilot dropped down lower and the wave washed over the wing. As the throttles were opened 
					wide to prevent the bomber from stalling on striking the surface, the fire was out and the pilot 
					made a successful emergency landing at a fighter base in East Anglia. As the bomber touched down,
					the No.4 propeller spun off and rolled ahead down the runway. Battle damaged on a mission to 
					railway installations at Münster, Germany 10Oct43. As they approached the city, the formation 
					was swarmed by a large force of enemy aircraft for an estimated forty-five minutes of vicious 
					fighting. By the time their friendly fighter escorts arrived to drive off the Luftwaffe, the damage 
					had already been done. The bomber was hit by an aerial rocket from a Bf-110, the right wing 
					was almost sheared off about twelve feet from the tip, and the aircraft was forced to leave the 
					formation. By using the trim tabs, excess left rudder and help from the Bombardier who, with 
					the pilots, pulled on the control column, they were able to get the bomber headed home. 
					As the “Eightball” proceeded across the North Sea, the enemy fighters left, but trouble still loomed. 
					The engines were laboring very hard in holding altitude and escaping the enemy fighters. 
					Also the engines were very noisy and it was questionable whether they would last long enough 
					to get the plane to England. As the aircraft approached the 390th Bomb Group home base at 
					Framlingham, the weather closed in with almost zero visibility. After making one unsuccessful pass, 
					the Control Tower ordered “Eightball” to proceed to Thorpe Abbotts (Station 139), Norfolk, 
					home of the 100th Bomb Group. Before landing at the 100th, one engine was feathered and another 
					engine was providing minimum power. The landing was rather rough, due to lack of visibility, 
					drag from the damaged wing and inadequate power from the engines. The plane overran and 
					ended up in a small ditch off the runway. The crew was very relieved to be down with no one harmed.

					Friedrichstrasse railway station, Berlin, Germany 7May44 (1WIA:9RTD). Take off was normal 
					and all went well until the bomber met heavy flak between the I.P. and the target. There were 
					faults with two of the engines and also problems with the oxygen supply. The plane could not 
					keep up with the group, so the crew jettisoned the bombs and set course for home. The pilots 
					decided to make the run home at about twenty-five feet above ground to avoid enemy fighters or 
					being spotted on enemy radar. As they hurtled along, skimming just above hedges, trees and power
					cables, people flattened themselves on the ground as the B-17 roared by. Then the plane came to 
					what appeared to be a fortification but soon proved to be the dyke of a canal, complete with German 
					gunners on barges who hit them with 20mm rounds. The ball turret gunner came out of his turret and 
					stood in the radio room, thinking he would be safer in the aircraft. Somewhat ironically, he was the 
					only crew member to be injured by the barge gunners. The gunners also severed the trim tab cables 
					which caused the nose to drop. The B-17 would have ploughed in had it not plunged through the trees 
					and lifted the nose as the pilots fought to recover control. Fortunately, over the sea the crew saw a 
					P-38 Lightning and a P-47 Thunderbolt who escorted them home where the plane made a normal landing. 
					The ground crew had a lot of work to do. One propeller was split, the Plexiglas was shattered, the

					Participated in a shuttle mission to the Messerschmitt aircraft factories at Regensburg, Germany 17Aug43. 
					After the target, the bomber turned south and landed at the Twelfth Air Force base at Bône, Algeria.

					the target area was very intense. Failed to return from a mission to the VKF (Vereinigte 
					Kugellagerfabriken) ball bearing factory at Erkner, Berlin, Germany 8Mar44 (9KIA:1POW). 
					Very determined enemy fighter opposition was met en route to the target during a lapse of the 
					friendly escorts. The primary target was not able to be bombed as planned, so diverted to a 
					factory complex at Wildau, southeast of Berlin. Flak was not heavy or effective over the 
					target, but a large force of enemy fighters engaged the bomber formation as it headed for home. 
					Shot down by Bf 109 fighters, the plane was last seen with No.3 propeller feathered and both 
					wings damaged. Crashed Neu-Ummendorf, near Eilsleben, nineteen miles west of Magdeburg, Germany. {46 missions}.

					Failed to return from a mission to the harbor at Piraeus, Greece 11Jan44 (7KIA:3RTD). Mid-air collision 
					and crashed at Kalavatra, Greece. On that fateful day, the briefed mission was for the 5th Wing 
					composed of the 2nd, 97th, 301st and 99th Bomb Groups, to fly on a southerly course through the 
					heel of Italy to the town of Lecce where the Wing would then take a heading out over the Adriatic Sea, 
					to a point over the Peloponnese peninsula of Greece. From this point the crews were briefed to 
					complete a 90° degree turn to the Initial Point over Lagousa Island. From there the mission 
					dictated a straight run in to the target, reassemble, and return to base. After the formation 
					was organized and began making its way to the target, the Groups ran into a weather front of 10/10 clouds. 
					At eighteen thousand feet they entered an overcast. The clouds were very thick and visibility 
					was not much beyond the wingtips, making it almost impossible to see other aircraft in the formation. 
					At that altitude, and with the thickness of the clouds, ice began to form on their wings. In such 
					situations it was standard operating procedure for trailing squadrons in the formation to fly 
					off course for a couple minutes to obtain some spacing from the lead squadron, which would 
					continue to maintain its course. However, as the 97th Bomb Group began making a left turn 
					for their bomb run on the target, the lead plane of the 342nd Bomb Squadron encountered 
					severe turbulence made by the preceding elements of the Wing. The turbulence was so severe 
					that the lead aircraft of the squadron was forced into a steep left bank before it plummeted 
					temporarily out of control and lost altitude at a rate of 1,000ft per minute. By the time the pilot 
					was able to recover and regain his place in formation, the two sister planes in the flight were 
					nowhere to be seen. Meanwhile, the pilots of the two sister planes from the flight,
					B-17F No.42-3251 and B-17F No.42-29918 found themselves alone in 10/10 visibility, unsure 
					where the formation had disappeared to, with ice forming on their wings, and experiencing 
					engine trouble. From what was deduced later in the accident report, the doomed B-17s made the 
					decision to abort and turn back for the relative safety of Italy. In a tragic turn of events, their 
					decision to return home took them directly into the path of the oncoming 301st Bomb Group. 
					According to the official report of the Board of Inquiry, the two B-17s of the 97th Bomb Group 
					experienced engine trouble and left the formation. Instead of making a 180-degree right turn, 
					away from the formation, the aircraft made a turn to the left and flew head-on into the 301st formation.
					According to a Bombardier assigned to the lead ship of the 301st Bomb Group, and flown 
					by the Group Commanding Officer, he was startled to see a pair of 97th Bomb Group B-17s emerge 
					out of a cloud about 20 degrees to the left and aimed straight at his aircraft. Almost Instantly, 
					both B-17s bracketed his aircraft, with one passing closely over his right wing that clipped the 
					vertical stabiliser, and the other closely passing beneath the left wing. Almost immediately, 
					the tail gunner witnessed a big ball of fire that lit up the clouds as the B-17s collided with one 
					Fortress in the lead element, and two B-17s in the second element. P-38 pilots, flying low cover 
					escort under the overcast, reported watching pieces of B-17s raining from the sky for what 
					seemed like five minutes. There were eight B-17s that fell out of the sky simultaneously. 
					Thirteen Americans survived; 64 perished. {64 missions}

					planes within a larger wave of 300, had taken off from Snetterton Heath to strike the Focke-Wulf
					sub-contractor factory in Oschersleben. As the planes approached Germany’s northern coast, 
					approximately thirty miles west of the islands of Heligoland, German fighters intercepted and 
					attacked the flight of bombers. One by one, the fighters knocked out the three other aircraft in the 
					formation, leaving Dallas Rebel alone to defend itself. In an effort to protect his aircraft, 
					the pilot flew the B-17 into a larger formation of bombers. But shortly thereafter three enemy 
					fighters singled his aircraft out, and 20mm cannon fire from the German aircraft punched holes 
					in Dallas Rebel from its left wing across to its right. The pilot started evasive action and slid 
					under the lead ship for protection, but not quickly enough to avoid cannon fire through the 
					radio room and out the right wing. The ball turret gunner had time to blow up the lead fighter, 
					but the other two got away. As the bomber started to descend from its damage, its gunners 
					continued to defend the Flying Fortress and managed to shoot down two more of the 
					attacking German fighters. Three more followed it down. The tail-gunner blew up one, 
					and a waist gunner got another. The attack set fire to the bomb bay and disabled the 
					bomber’s intercom system. In an effort to extinguish the fire, the pilot put the aircraft 
					into a dive, and the crewmen saw that the left wing had been partly burned away, 
					its internal structure - including fuel tanks - exposed. Shortly thereafter, the fire spread. 
					Suddenly, large quantities of fuel poured out of the left wing tanks. The crew felt a large 
					bump when the fuel ignited, and all four engines stopped. While the aircraft was headed 
					for a controlled crash into the North Sea, four of its crew members chose to bail out by 
					parachute and were never recovered. When the aircraft was nearing the water’s surface, 
					the pilot leveled out to burn off speed and set the aircraft up for a smooth water landing. 
					Its survival dinghies were deployed. After escaping the sinking plane, the remaining six 
					crew men crammed onto their one small survival raft. As they righted themselves in their
					dinghy, the sinking plane exploded in the water beneath them. They had paddles, a flare gun, 
					a hand-powered radio, two parachutes, and a small survival kit with chocolate bars and 
					fresh water. They resourcefully used parachutes and oxygen bottles that floated up from 
					the plane to make a rudimentary sea anchor and measure their drift. The six men floated 
					in the cramped rubber dinghy, hoping for rescue. They decided to paddle and crank 
					their radio in two-hour shifts. Their first afternoon adrift, the men spotted a large 
					predatory shark that had taken an interest in them. The downed airmen helplessly 
					watched the shark as it approached their raft. The men keenly watched for any sign of rescue. 
					The next day, while adrift, they spotted a German fighter plane in the distance, and 
					then a storm brought 15-foot waves that threatened to capsize the dinghy. 
					The men were drenched by rain and sea spray, which lasted all day and all night. 
					That first evening, they saw several British aircraft and hoped that someone would 
					spot them and call for a rescue. British fighters, which had bombed Jutland, dove 
					down close to them on their way home but didn’t see them. The following morning, 
					July 30, nearly 72 hours after the crash, the men awoke to the sound of explosions 
					along Germany’s northern coast. Three Luftwaffe Ju-52s, each with a mine detector 
					ring under it, were exploding mines with machine gun fire. When one noticed the crew,
					it left the formation to return to its base, while the others dropped green and yellow 
					sea markers around them. The men knew they had been marked and that they likely 
					faced capture. Half an hour later, a German plane showed up. A Do-24 twin-engine 
					seaplane soon returned and landed close to the raft. Two guards stood on the pontoons 
					with machine guns and motioned the survivors to board the plane.

					Fifteenth Air Force, Italy 1Nov43. Cerignola #1, Italy 10Dec43. Failed to return from a mission 
					to the harbor at Piraeus, Greece 11Jan44 (7KIA). After a mid-air collision, the plane crashed near 
					Agrambela, Greece. On that fateful day, the briefed mission was for the 5th Wing composed of the 
					2nd, 97th, 301st and 99th Bomb Groups, to fly on a southerly course through the heel of Italy 
					to the town of Lecce where the Wing would then take a heading out over the Adriatic Sea, 
					to a point over the Peloponnese peninsula of Greece. From this point the crews were briefed 
					to complete a 90° degree turn to the Initial Point over Lagousa Island. From there the 
					mission dictated a straight run in to the target, reassemble, and return to base. After the 
					formation was organized and began making its way to the target, the Groups ran into a 
					weather front of 10/10 clouds. At eighteen thousand feet they entered an overcast. 
					The clouds were very thick and visibility was not much beyond the wingtips, making it a
					lmost impossible to see other aircraft in the formation. At that altitude, and with the 
					thickness of the clouds, ice began to form on their wings. In such situations it was standard 
					operating procedure for trailing squadrons in the formation to fly off course for a couple 
					minutes to obtain some spacing from the lead squadron, which would continue to maintain 
					its course. However, as the 97th Bomb Group began making a left turn for their bomb run on 
					the target, the lead plane of the 342nd Bomb Squadron encountered severe turbulence 
					made by the preceding elements of the Wing. The turbulence was so severe that the lead 
					aircraft of the squadron was forced into a steep left bank before it plummeted temporarily 
					out of control and lost altitude at a rate of 1,000ft per minute. By the time the pilot was 
					able to recover and regain his place in formation, the two sister planes in the flight were 
					nowhere to be seen. Meanwhile, the pilots of the two sister planes from the flight, 
					B-17F No.42-3251 and B-17F No.42-29918 found themselves alone in 10/10 visibility, 
					unsure where the formation had disappeared to, with ice forming on their wings, and 
					experiencing engine trouble. From what was deduced later in the accident report, the 
					doomed B-17s made the decision to abort and turn back for the relative safety of Italy. 
					In a tragic turn of events, their decision to return home took them directly into the path 
					of the oncoming 301st Bomb Group. According to the official report of the Board of Inquiry, 
					the two B-17s of the 97th Bomb Group experienced engine trouble and left the formation. 
					Instead of making a 180-degree right turn, away from the formation, the aircraft made a 
					turn to the left and flew head-on into the 301st formation. According to a Bombardier 
					assigned to the lead ship of the 301st Bomb Group, and flown by the Group Commanding 
					Officer, he was startled to see a pair of 97th Bomb Group B-17s emerge out of a cloud 
					about 20 degrees to the left and aimed straight at his aircraft. Almost Instantly, both 
					B-17s bracketed his aircraft, with one passing closely over his right wing that clipped 
					the vertical stabiliser, and the other closely passing beneath the left wing. Almost 
					immediately, the tail gunner witnessed a big ball of fire that lit up the clouds as the 
					B-17s collided with one fortress in the lead element, and two B-17s in the second element.
					 P-38 pilots, flying low cover escort under the overcast, reported watching pieces of B-17s 
					raining from the sky for what seemed like five minutes. There were eight B-17s that fell 
					out of the sky simultaneously. Thirteen Americans survived; 64 perished. {46 missions}.

					the industrial area of Paris, France 9Sep43. The Fortress was hit in the wing and badly damaged 
					over Les Andeleys on the way to attack a target in the Paris area and was forced to leave the 
					formation and turn back. Eight German fighters rode high above the crippled bomber in an 
					orderly formation to create the impression that it was a friendly escort. Then, when the 
					bomber was away from the rest of the formation, the German fighters closed in for the kill. 
					The pilot and his co-pilot with their crew members proceeded to dogfight the Fortress 
					against its attackers, twisting and turning the bomber in spite of its badly damaged 
					wing to expose less target surface to the enemy and to force them to break off their attacks. 
					Several huge holes were punched through the left wing by the first attack of two strings of 
					enemy fighters when the bomber was approaching Paris. It looked like a 37mm shell from 
					the size of the holes. The control cables to the left aileron were shot out and immediately 
					the aircraft began to vibrate. It jumped way to the left of the formation, and shook itself 
					from that time all the way home. The bombardier opened the bomb bay doors and jettisoned 
					the bombs to get rid of their weight. The aircraft tried to keep up with the formation but 
					couldn't. Soon after it left it the friendly fighter escort was way up with the leading formation 
					and the bomber was alone. It made a slow turn and headed back for the coast. It was losing 
					altitude about 1,000ft a minute. Then eight enemy fighters came in and hit the bomber again. 
					On their first sweep, the bombardier shot down a Bf 109. When they attacked again, 
					The engineer/top turret gunner and the ball turret gunner each shot down another fighter. 
					Three of the enemy fighters turned towards home. Only one stayed with the bomber. 
					He kept with it all the way to the coast. The crew did a little bit of dogfighting with him. 
					They would turn into him as he dived and he would overshoot and have to go on and turn and 
					make another pass. He attacked from everywhere, evidently trying to find a position with a 
					gun out. He finally made one last approach from the rear. The bomber climbed sharply from 
					him and could see a stream of 20mm shells pouring past it just under the wing. The German 
					must have used up all his ammunition then. He went far out to the left and started wobbling 
					his wings. Near the French coast, the bomber, which was now down to 7,000ft, was startled 
					by a terrific barrage of flak, but it weathered that storm and made a forced landing at RAF Ford, 
					West Sussex. The crew, which sang "Coming in on a Wing and a Prayer" as they were doing 
					just that, was loud in its praise of each other. Failed to return from a mission to the German 
					Navy cruiser Nürnberg in the port area of Gdynia, Poland 9Oct43 (4KIA:6POW). The bomber 
					was attacked by German fighters on the way home over South Jutland. Struck by a grenade 
					shot from Messerschmitt Bf 109 fighters so that a fire broke out in the right wing, which 
					spread to the aircraft's radio room and bomb bay. The plane slowly dropped out of the 
					formation and the bail out was given with the pilot leaving the aircraft last. Shortly after this 
					the plane exploded over the North Sea, southwest of Fanø, Denmark. {9 missions}.

					Named  "Shack Rabbit III"  Failed to return from a mission to the industrial area 
					at Düren, Germany 20Oct43 (4KIA:6EVD). When the bomber circled above the North Sea 
					in order to reach enough altitude to then set course for the Belgian coast, engine No.4 
					started to cause problems. In recent weeks there have been a lot of problems with the 
					turbochargers within the Group. As the Group climbed, the plane fell behind 
					because it didn't have enough power. The question arose: should the crew return or 
					continue the mission? The pilot wanted to persevere. In the meantime they had climbed 
					close to the required cruising altitude. He reasoned that if the formation dropped 
					just a little bit, to about 24,000ft, they would fit back into the formation. But their 
					place had already been taken by another aircraft and they now had to fly in the 
					unenviable position of "tail end charlie". When they crossed the Belgian coast they saw a 
					heavy, dark cloud bank in front of them. It must have been the same weather front that 
					caused previous missions to be canceled. As the Group approached the clouds,
					they started to climb and lost this plane again. It was already flying at maximum height and

					at Münster, Germany 11Nov43. Shortly before reaching the target, the bomber was struck on the 
					left wing by flak which caused an explosion and oil loss from No.2 engine. The propeller was 
					feathered as the bomber continued the bomb run. After the target, the bomber had dropped back 
					and was alone in the sky, vulnerable to fighter attacks. A Bf 109 came out of the sun and opened fire, 
					causing several explosions in the cockpit which filled with smoke. The bomber quickly dove down 
					and, with the side windows opened, the smoke cleared. With No.3 and 4 throtles unresponsive,
					the pilot shutdown No.3 engine. By this time, the landing gear had dropped down. A large hole 
					was found in the right forward bulkhead of the bomb bay, caused by 20mm cannon shells. 
					This had disabled all electrical systems on the right side of the plane. The pilot headed for 
					cloud cover and dropped down to 500 feet while the gunners kept enemy fighters at bay
					until the bomber reached the coast. The pilot was able to land safely at Rougham with just 
					two operating engines but had trouble closing No.4 engine. Standing on the brakes, the bomber 
					was halted just short of the end of the runway. During a three-day pass to London, the crew were

					Mid-air explosion 25 miles south of Rapid City Field, SD 20Jun43 (9KIS). Took off to conduct a typical training 
					maneuver, preparing to fire at targets below in a desolate area known as the Badlands about 25 miles 
					south of Rapid City. The airplane had been modified with additional internal tankage in the wings at a 
					modification center. The explosion was probably caused by the ignition of improperly vented gasoline 
					fumes in the wing panel. The airplane was standing by in the gunnery range traffic pattern waiting its 
					turn to fire at a towed target when it was seen on fire and breaking up in flight by witnesses on the ground.
					The B-17 fuselage broke in half at the radio room compartment near the starboard wing. Pieces of the 
					starboard wing and various fire blackened wreckage were found strewn over an area called Red Shirt Table. 
					Investigation of the wreckage revealed that the airplane suffered a catastrophic internal explosion of 
					gasoline and air in the starboard wing at an altitude of 3,500 feet above ground level. The damage 
					and subsequent fire caused the airplane to break up and crash.

					Accident returning to base after dark from the second mission of the day in support of the Salerno Beach invasion. 
					On the way to the target the No.1 engine failed, however the pilot elected to push on with three and 
					finish the mission. On the way home the plane was approaching the North African coast when it lost 
					the No.2 engine. There was a B-26 airfield nearby but the pilot made a decision to go to home base.

					engines out, flash your landing lights,” and at that same moment, the pilot opened the throttles and 
					pulled up to avoid another B-17 that cut him out of the pattern. On two engines, the increased power 
					caused the failure of No.4 engine. The plane was successfully crash landed on a hillside in the dark.

					The navigator bailed out. On that fateful day, the briefed mission was for the 5th Wing composed 
					of the 2nd, 97th, 301st and 99th Bomb Groups, to fly on a southerly course through the heel of Italy 
					to the town of Lecce where the Wing would then take a heading out over the Adriatic Sea, to a point 
					over the Peloponnese peninsula of Greece. From this point the crews were briefed to complete a 90° 
					degree turn to the Initial Point over Lagousa Island. From there the mission dictated a straight run 
					in to the target, reassemble, and return to base. After the formation was organized and began making 
					its way to the target, the Groups ran into a weather front of 10/10 clouds. At eighteen thousand 
					feet they entered an overcast. The clouds were very thick and visibility was not much beyond the 
					wingtips, making it almost impossible to see other aircraft in the formation. At that altitude, and 
					with the thickness of the clouds, ice began to form on their wings. In such situations it was standard 
					operating procedure for trailing squadrons in the formation to fly off course for a couple minutes 
					to obtain some spacing from the lead squadron, which would continue to maintain its course. 
					However, as the 97th Bomb Group began making a left turn for their bomb run on the target, the lead 
					plane of the 342nd Bomb Squadron encountered severe turbulence made by the preceding elements 
					of the Wing. The turbulence was so severe that the lead aircraft of the squadron was forced into a 
					steep left bank before it plummeted temporarily out of control and lost altitude at a rate of 1,000ft per 
					minute. By the time the pilot was able to recover and regain his place in formation, the two sister 
					planes in the flight were nowhere to be seen. Meanwhile, the pilots of the two sister planes from 
					the flight, B-17F No.42-3251 and B-17F No.42-29918 found themselves alone in 10/10 visibility, 
					unsure where the formation had disappeared to, with ice forming on their wings, and experiencing 
					engine trouble. From what was deduced later in the accident report, the doomed B-17s made the 
					decision to abort and turn back for the relative safety of Italy. In a tragic turn of events, their 
					decision to return home took them directly into the path of the oncoming 301st Bomb Group. 
					According to the official report of the Board of Inquiry, the two B-17s of the 97th Bomb Group 
					experienced engine trouble and left the formation. Instead of making a 180-degree right turn, 
					away from the formation, the aircraft made a turn to the left and flew head-on into the 301st formation. 
					According to a Bombardier assigned to the lead ship of the 301st Bomb Group, and flown by the 
					Group Commanding Officer, he was startled to see a pair of 97th Bomb Group B-17s emerge out 
					of a cloud about 20 degrees to the left and aimed straight at his aircraft. Foggia #8 (Longskirt), Lucera,

					B-17F No.42-3251 and B-17F No.42-29918 found themselves alone in 10/10 visibility, unsure 
					where the formation had disappeared to, with ice forming on their wings, and experiencing engine 
					trouble. From what was deduced later in the accident report, the doomed B-17s made the decision 
					to abort and turn back for the relative safety of Italy. In a tragic turn of events, their decision 
					to return home took them directly into the path of the oncoming 301st Bomb Group. According to 
					the official report of the Board of Inquiry, the two B-17s of the 97th Bomb Group experienced 
					engine trouble and left the formation. Instead of making a 180-degree right turn, away from 
					the formation, the aircraft made a turn to the left and flew head-on into the 301st formation. 
					According to a Bombardier assigned to the lead ship of the 301st Bomb Group, and flown by the 
					Group Commanding Officer, he was startled to see a pair of 97th Bomb Group B-17s emerge 
					out of a cloud about 20 degrees to the left and aimed straight at his aircraft. Almost Instantly, 
					both B-17s bracketed his aircraft, with one passing closely over his right wing that clipped the 
					vertical stabiliser, and the other closely passing beneath the left wing. Almost immediately, 
					the tail gunner witnessed a big ball of fire that lit up the clouds as the B-17s collided with one 
					Fortress in the lead element, and two B-17s in the second element. P-38 pilots, flying low cover 
					escort under the overcast, reported watching pieces of B-17s raining from the sky for what seemed
					like five minutes. There were eight B-17s that fell out of the sky simultaneously. Thirteen Americans 
					survived; sixty-four perished. {12 missions}   MACR 1830

					{first combat mission 13Aug43}. Failed to return from a mission to bomb an electrical transformer 
					station and railway marshalling yards in Foggia, Italy 19Aug43 (5KIA:4MIA:1POW). Enemy fighters 
					swarmed about the bombers both to and from the target area. Over the city of Foggia the flak was 
					intense. At an altitude of 21,000ft, the bomber managed to reach the target area intact and completed 
					its bombing run. On the return home, enemy fighters attacked once more; this time they hit the bomber 
					hard. The aircraft was riddled by machine gun fire from several of the Bf 109s. One wing was nearly 
					blown off and the plane's No.2 and No.3 engines were on fire. One by one the guns in the rear of the 
					plane stopped firing. The five gunners were badly injured or dead. Crippled and falling out of the sky, 
					the bomber was surrounded by enemy fighters. The pilot gave the order to bail out. The five remaining 
					crew members bailed out at 19,000ft over the Tyrrhenian Sea, south of Salerno and ten miles west 
					of Licosa Point. The co-pilot called out to his crew members once he hit the water, but got no response. 
					He began to move in the direction of land. It took him thirty-two hours to swim twenty-one miles

					and a Royal Air Force rescue boat immediately put out to the scene of the crash, but no bodies were found. 
					It attempted to tow the aircraft to land but it sank. On August 10, a team of divers endeavour to salvage the 
					plane and recover the bodies. After three days' unsuccessful attempts to locate the Fortress, the men left Berwick. 
					The crash was the result of equipment failure, training procedure failures and weather. The bomber had 
					radio aids failure beyond the point of no return and the crew was unable to recognise/remedy/repair the fault. 
					All northern UK (except Prestwick as usual) was covered in low cloud and fog. The crew were being tracked 
					but would not answer radio calls for diversion after they overflew the west coast of Scotland. No aircraft could 
					be scrambled from closer bases to intercept because of the weather and Prestwick aircraft were tasked

					near Mill Creek, twenty miles northeast of Ardmore 12Feb44 (10KIS). The bomber crew was tasked to participate 
					in a low level bombing demonstration during the base ‘open house’ held that day. The mission for the day was 
					to fly to Matagorda Bay, just off the coast from Corpus Christi, Texas. They fired at tow targets for several hours, 
					then headed back to Ardmore. There were 13 B-17s flying in close formation. One B-17 with officer instructors 
					brought up the rear and advised the pilots as to what to do. They had been flying at 20,000ft this day and as 
					we neared home, we began to descend and turn at the same time. This is a difficult maneuver for a large plane 
					to accomplish, especially if in close formation under turbulent air conditions. The bomber was flying in a 
					very close formation with planes on both sides and in the front and rear. They had let down to approximately 
					15,000ft when the aircraft (42-30752) on the upper left slid into this aircraft. The two right engines

					led a training mission in the bomber from Chanute Field. The flight headed to the pilot's hometown

					bombing missions over targets in Sicily and Italy. The B-17 was an odd sight to the residents of Dubuque 
					since there were no B-17 bases near Dubuque. The residents were surprised to see the B-17 roar over their 
					town at low altitude that day. The B-17 made two low passes past Heller's Tavern off old Highway 20. 
					Soon after the low pass, the right wing of the bomber clipped a tree, and the pilot corrected, sending 
					the bomber into a stall. The plane crashed and burst into flames, killing all five men on board. 
					It was speculated that the pilot was flying low over the tavern to get the attention of a girl that 
					worked there at the time. Salvaged 10Feb44

					While on a practice bombing mission in South Dakota, there was a fire in the bomb bay door motor. 
					After trying to turn the doors back up with the manual handle, the crew lost each of the four engines 
					in turn from carburetor icing. By this time they were too low to jump and the crew went into their 
					practiced ‘toboggan’ mode in the radio room. Meanwhile the pilot and co-pilot attempted to crash 
					land the B-17. The pilot made such a perfect, smooth landing on a snow-covered wheat field that the 
					aircraft neither bounced nor even suffered a hangnail. The crew was then treated by the Colonel
					to ‘the best steaks in South Dakota’. The pilot’s crash landing had been so gentle, that after fixing the 
					propellers and lifting it, Colonel Hunter, the CO of the 398th Bomb Group, flew the B-17 out of the 
					wheat field on a metal-grid runway. 225th Base Unit (Combat Crew Training Station), Rapid City

					flak over the Frisian Islands en route to the target, one engine was damaged but the bomber 
					kept formation. Reaching the target, the aircraft was attacked by Ju 88s firing rockets, one of which 
					ruptured the right fuel tank. After dropping its bomb load on the target, the bomber was attacked by Bf 109s,

					{first combat mission 7Sep43}. Failed to return from a mission to the submarine construction yard at 
					Vegesack, Bremen, Germany 16Dec43 (6MIA:2POW:2EVD). The supercharger was running rough on the \
					No.3 engine. There was also a problem transferring gasoline to that engine. Consequently, about 30 miles 
					from the coast the plane slowly dropped out of the formation. It was assumed that the pilot was aborting 
					the mission, even though it was thought all four engines were running properly. The navigator set a course 
					to intercept the formation before reaching the target. Just before reaching the target, the fuel-starved 
					No.3 engine went dead and the propeller began windmilling. The pilot and co-pilot worked to feather 
					the propeller but to no avail. Meanwhile, the target was approaching and covered with clouds. Perhaps 
					due to the struggle and confusion of keeping up it appears that the bombardier dropped the bomb 
					load at the IP. To avoid a concentration of flak to the west of Bremen, the formation made a planned 
					turn to the left and headed directly south before again changing course due west toward England. 
					Now lagging dangerously behind and below the main formation, the pilot and his crew struggled on. 
					Twenty minutes after the target, the Luftwaffe arrived. This was the only B-17 out of formation and \
					flying somewhere between 23,000 and 26,000ft. Down below, the overcast reached up to about 7,000ft. 
					The pilot knew that if he could reach that overcast, they might just make it. The surviving crew stated 
					the attacking aircraft were Bf 109s and Ju 88s. The Ju 88s were likely night fighters of I/NJG2 that were 
					also tasked with attacking B-17s in daylight. Somewhere during that time, the control cables in the 
					left waist area were cut and an exploding 20mm shell wounded the radio operator. They were hit 
					again and the interphone was shot out. By this time they were at 1,000ft altitude. Four crewmen 
					bailed out. The bomber probably crashed in Ijsselmer, near Urk, Netherlands. {9 missions}, MACR 1556

					502nd Bomb Squadron, 346th Bomb Group, Dyersburg Field, TN 27Jul43. Crashed between 
					Palmersville and Latham, TN 5Sep43 (8KIS::1DOI:1RTD). The bomber was en route to a 
					rendezvous point for a mission in Gulfport, Mississippi. At 8,000ft the flight indicator 
					went out and the pilot had considerable difficulty in flying the airplane under instrument 
					conditions. It appeared as though, after getting into the clear, the pilot continued to 
					climb and went into the overcast again trying to reach 20,000ft, though the bombardier 
					states the airplane exceeded the maximum safe operation conditions which placed a great 
					strain on the airplane. It is believed because of the statements of the co-pilot and bombardier 
					concerning this attitude of flight and the loss of control surface that the airplane went out 
					of control and into a spin, thereby disintegrating and crashing. The co-pilot noticed excessive 
					cylinder head temperatures on engines No.1, 3 and 4, and opened the cowl flaps. Then there 
					was a explosion that jolted the plane and it went off into a spiral to the right. The plane 
					levelled off but immediately it went off to the left in a spin. Then after a few seconds of being tossed 
					around, the fuselage broke right at the top turret. Salvaged 30Sep43.

					Failed to return from a mission to bomb a railway marshalling yard at Rimini, Italy 27Nov43 (8KIA:2POW).
					A few minutes before nearing the target the formation encountered heavy overcast, parts of which were 
					broken and towering. An engine lost power and the plane was forced to leave its position in the flight and 
					jettison the bombs. This plane had difficulty in keeping up, but soon the group flew over a town heading 
					out to sea. The circle which the group was making out to sea was in order to get a good run on target. 
					The pilot cut the corner to catch up with the group. As the plane approached land, slightly ahead of the 
					more rapidly moving group coming in, the pilot made a short turn to the left and went into a nearby 
					overcast. About this time, still in the overcast, and as it broke out, the No.3 engine began to lose power, 
					slowing the speed even more. About this time, about twenty-five Bf 109 German fighter aircraft were 
					coming in to attack. The first burst of fighter fire raked the B-17, apparently from the tail to the nose. 
					The engineer/top turret gunner died instantly. Soon the No.2 engine and the entire left wing were on fire. 
					The crew were starting to bail out as the plane exploded. The two survivors, right waist gunner and co-pilot, 
					were knocked unconscious and ejected by the explosion. The plane crashed near Apecchio, SSW of Rimini, Italy

					395th Bomb Group, Ardmore Field, OK. Mid-air collision near Mill Creek 20 miles northeast of 
					Ardmore Field, OK 12Feb44. The bomber crew was tasked to participate in a low level bombing 
					demonstration during the base ‘open house’ held that day. The mission for the day was to fly to 
					Matagorda Bay, just off the coast from Corpus Christi, Texas. They fired at tow targets for 
					several hours, then headed back to Ardmore. There were 13 B-17s flying in close formation. 
					One B-17 with officer instructors brought up the rear and advised the pilots as to what to do. 
					They had been flying at 20,000ft this day and as we neared home, we began to descend and turn 
					at the same time. This is a difficult maneuver for a large plane to accomplish, especially if in 
					close formation under turbulent air conditions. The bomber was flying in a very close formation 
					with planes on both sides and in the front and rear. They had let down to approximately 15,000ft 
					when the aircraft slid into aircraft 42-30752. The two right engines cut the other plane into two 
					pieces just behind the radio room. The front of that aircraft went straight up for a brief moment 
					knocking off the Plexiglas nose of this plane which pushed that aircraft under it knocking off its 
					ball turret. The pilots of 42-30572 managed to regain control, although heavily damaged with 
					two right engines inoperable, they flew the 15-20 miles to Ardmore Field and landed safely.

					The bomber took off on a 1,000 mile night navigation training mission from Sioux City Army 
					Air Base 18/19Apr44 (10RTD). About ten to fifteen miles west of Marquette, MI, No.3 engine was 
					reported to have an oil leak to the propeller governor. Attempts to feather the propeller failed and
					the pilot headed across Lake Superior to Duluth, MN for a forced landing. Then the engine 
					caught fire but, without fire extinguishers, the fire could not be extinguished. A few minutes 
					later the inboard cylinders blew up and blew off the cowling. The engine was burning fiercely and the 
					unfeathered propeller was causing excess drag. Turning towards land, as pieces of the engine 
					continued to blow off, the order to bail out was given. Set on autopilot, all the crew bailed out safely. 
					The plane crashed on the snow-covered Porcupine mountains thirty miles southwest of Ontonagon, MI i
					n the early hours of 19Apr44. The first four crewmen to bail out landed almost on the beach of 
					Lake Superior at Union Bay, MI, and walked to Silver City. By that morning, a Civil Air Patrol spotter 
					had located the wrecked plane. By noon, all but one of the crew had been rescued. Tail gunner was 
					found two days later walking down a remote logging road. Salvaged 20Apr44..

					to enemy fighter attacks. Good fighter support was provided by P-47 Thunderbolts on the 
					penetration and by P-51 Mustangs over the target. P-47s were airborne to provide withdrawal 
					support but they obeyed the recall order to return to England and left the bombers to fend

					struck by empty 0.50 caliber shell casings. Seriously battle damaged during a mission to 
					the ball bearing factories at Schweinfurt, Germany 14Oct43 (1WIA:9RTD). En route to the 
					target area, the bomber formation was repeatedly attacked by a large number of Luftwaffe 
					fighters. After the target, the Group turned and headed westward for England. German fighters, 
					having landed and refueled, attacked again until, finally, the bombers reached the coastline 
					of western Europe and relative safety. 20mm cannon shells struck the No.1 and 4 propellers,
					right wing and aileron, right horizontal stabiliser, right fuselage. Flak struck the tail gunner’s 
					compartment, left side of nose and left inner wing over the No.2 main fuel tank. Seriously battle
					 damaged during a mission to the port area at Kiel, Germany 13Dec43. No.4 engine struck by flak. 
					About thirty minutes before the target the plane was struck by flak. The whole formation made a 360 
					degree turn somewhere near the I.P. As the turn straightened out the No.4 engine started to misfire, 
					a second later the propeller began to windmill, the engine cowling came off and the plane dropped 
					back as the formation flew on. The crew dropped the bombs somewhere near the target but not on it. 
					The plane was steadily losing altitude and came out of the undercast about twenty-five feet above a 
					Danish island. They were right over a German convoy. Simultaneously a Ju 88 attacked. The bomber 
					pilot did some fast evasive action through a mist just off the water and finally lost the Ju 88. By this time 
					an engine had caught on fire, so the pilot and co-pilot decided to turn around and land in Denmark. 
					As the plane came in sight of the Danish coast the engine fire went out, so the pilot turned for the 
					North Sea and England. The plane was down about 200 feet above the water. After ten minutes the Ju 88 
					came back in for another attack. The bomber was fast approaching a six-ship German convoy. 
					The fighter started to come in at the same level ahead of the bomber. Just as it broke to point its nose, 
					the bomber pilot turned into his direction. The Ju 88 continued to come. As it passed, the top turret and 
					the bombardier in the nose started firing and the fighter started trailing black smoke. It disappeared 
					into the mist, engine burning and smoking. All this tine the German ship convoy was firing machine 
					guns and flak at the bomber. Fortunately, none of the crew had been hit, and as far as they could 
					determine the bomber was undamaged. The pilot was having trouble holding the small altitude 
					he had and called for all spare ammunition and all extra equipment to be thrown out to lighten the 
					load. Finally the plane came in over the English coast and landed an hour later than the briefed ETA. 
					Failed to return from a mission to the Junkers aircraft factory at Halberstadt, Germany 11Jan44 (2POW:5EVD:3KIA). 
					The formation encountered some light flak en route and over the target. After leaving the target 
					the formation was attacked by a Bf 110 fighter and then by 30 to 35 Fw 190 fighters. The aircraft 
					was strafed by 20mm cannon fire which struck the nose, vertical fin and knocked off half of the 
					starboard wing. Eight of the crew successfully bailed out of the aircraft at approximately 18000 feet.

					the formation was swarmed by a large force of enemy aircraft for an estimated forty-five minutes 
					of vicious fighting. By the time their friendly fighter escorts arrived to drive off the Luftwaffe, the 
					damage had already been done. Severely battle damaged on a mission to the Deschimag submarine 
					construction yard at Vegesack, Bremen, Germany 20Dec43 (5POW:1WIA:4RTD). En route to the 
					target area, the 390th Bomb Group encountered a large force of enemy fighters, many armed 
					with rockets. The plane suffered severe flak and fighter damage with two engines out of commission 
					and having trouble with a third one. The plane had been badly shot up and the communications 
					were out. The pilot dove for the ground because there were two fighters on to them. The bombardier 
					had been wounded and the gunners thought they were going down (so did the fighters, so they left) 
					and bailed out near Wilhelmshaven. The plane was so low when it leveled out, it was coming 
					up for the trees. The crew was over the Netherlands and saw that people in the fields kept pointing 
					in a certain direction. It took them a minute to realize that the people were pointing towards England 
					and would have been shot if the Nazis had seen them do it. The pilot brought the aircraft and 
					remaining crew back to force land at a fighter base, Raydon (Station 157), Suffolk. When they landed, 
					the crew counted 780 holes in the aircraft from the flak and fighters. Failed to return from a mission 
					to the Messerschmitt factory in Augsburg, Germany 16Mar44 (8KIA:2POW). From Strasburg, Germany
					to Augsburg, the bombers were attacked by Luftwaffe fighters in a running battle. Flak over the target 
					was moderate and accurate; flak en route was meagre and inaccurate. As the Group was passing near 
					Nördlingen, almost forty miles north of Augsburg, the plane was struck by rockets fired by enemy fighters, 
					which started a fire aboard the aircraft. With its wings and fuselage engulfed in flames, it promptly fell 
					out of formation and exploded. The wreckage crashed on Lautern, six miles east of Schwäbisch Gmünd,

					while returning from a raid on Gelsenkirchen, Germany 22Jun44. It came under attack by a 
					Messerschmitt 110 piloted by Hauptmann Heinz Struning of NJG1. Although it survived the first 
					attacking pass, a second two minutes later proved disastrous, knocking out the inboard starboard 
					engine and rendering the aircraft's controls useless. Instructing the co-pilot to feather the engines 
					the pilot then ordered the rest of the crew to stand-by for an emergency jump, but the very next 
					moment the aircraft was diving out of control for the ground. Somehow by piloting skill or just 
					plain luck, the pilot and co-pilot managed to pull the aircraft's nose up for just long enough so 
					that the crew could bail out. While five managed to do so the pilot, co-pilot, navigator and an 
					air gunner did not. Some year’s later one of the survivors reportedly said that when he bailed 
					out "the pilot and co-pilot were struggling with the aircraft's controls hoping to make a forced landing". 
					It has never been clarified why, but the assumption is that one or more of the crew were badly 
					wounded in the attack and their only chance of survival was to attempt a crash landing. 
					Moments later with the aircraft in flames it crashed intohe the ground at De Aaldert, near

					The pilot prepared to ditch and sent out an SOS, but the fire went out in further descent. Soon after this, 
					lightning struck the plane and disabled the radio. Now, with the fire out, the pilot decided to bring the 
					aircraft back to base and landed safely. Failed to return from a mission to the Luftwaffe air depot at 
					Mérignac, Bordeaux, France 5Dec43 (8KIA:2POW:1EVD). When the target was found to be completely 
					obscured, the Group turned to its secondary target, the Luftwaffe airfield at Cognac. Finding this 
					target also obscured and facing a fuel shortage, the planes began jettisoning their bomb loads. 
					Meagre flak along the route intensified over target and about a dozen fighters attacked. 
					Damaged by flak, dropped out of formation north of the target with No.1 propeller feathered and 
					was shot down by Fw 190 fighters. The pilot ordered the crew to bail out but only three airmen
					managed to escape before the bomber crashed near Cognac, France. {11 missions}. MACR 5022 and 7325.  
					Both MACRs wrongly identify the plane as 43-30637.

					to the Deutsche Schiff- und Maschinenbau Aktiengesellschaft (Deschimag) shipyard at Bremen, 
					Germany 8Oct43 (1KIA:9POW). The formation was met with stiff resistance by German fighters 
					and flak crews on the ground the entire way, from the Dutch coast all the way into the German 
					heartland. In addition, a large force of German fighters launched vicious attacks against the planes. 
					Over the target, the formation encountered intense flak. Flak damaged engine No.2, crashed Haupstedt, 
					Germany. {2 missions}.

					Failed to return from a mission to the AGO-Flugzeugwerke Fw 190 manufacturing factory at 
					Oschersleben, Germany 11Jan44 (6KIA:4POW). While the aircraft were airborne, the weather 
					closed in over English bases and a recall signal was issued. B/Gen. Robert F. Travis, Air 
					Commander of the 1st Bomb Division, continued on to the target. This left the 1st Bomb Division 
					with greater exposure to enemy fighter attacks. Good fighter support was provided by 
					P-47 Thunderbolts on the penetration and by P-51 Mustangs over the target. P-47s were airborne 
					to provide withdrawal support but they obeyed the recall order to return to England and left the 
					bombers to fend for themselves on the return trip. It proved to be the most disastrous of the 303rd 
					Bomb Group combat missions flown to date. The 303rd lost eleven of the forty B-17s flying the mission.
					Luftwaffe attacks started over the IJsselmeer and intensified when the American fighters returned home. 
					Meagre and fairly accurate flak was experienced on the bomb run, with intermittent inaccurate flak 
					on the return trip. Shot down by enemy fighters, crashed Herzberg, Sudharz, near Oschersleben, 
					Germany. {9 missions}.   MACR 1927

					the SE slope of Crown Point, on a rock slope facing north on a knoll just east of the Flowers 
					Trail, 28 miles west of Laporte, CO 13Jun44 (4KIS). The crew took off from Rapid City Army Air 
					Base on a navigation training flight to Greeley, Colorado, Akron, Colorado and return to 
					Rapid City. They proceeded to Scottsbluff, Nebraska. Upon leaving Scotts Bluff the navigator 
					evidently became lost due to the pilot taking a wrong compass heading. The navigator 
					had told the pilot to take a course of 197 degrees. However, the point of the crash was 
					at a course of approximately 227 degrees from Scotts Bluff. They then proceeded at an altitude 
					of approximately 9,600 feet. It is evident that the pilot had not checked the course flown by the 
					navigator. His first realization came when he noticed he was over mountainous terrain and 
					he asked for his maps. At this time he was well in the high range country and had pulled up 
					to about 10,200 feet. The pilot started to check his course when they suddenly came upon 
					the ridge immediately east of Crown Point. This ridge exceeds 11,500 feet. A last minute 
					attempt to pull up failed. The airplane crashed and caught fire immediately. The wreck was 
					demolished by the Army with dynamite six weeks after the crash.

					329th Base Unit (Combat Crew Training Station), Alexandria Field, LA 1Mar45. Crashed nine 
					miles WSW of Winnfield, CA 3Mar45 (11KIS). The bomber departed Alexandria Field on an 
					instrument training mission to the Gum Springs Bombing Range near Winnfield. On board the 
					heavy bomber was a crew of eleven men; the normal crew for a B-17 was ten men but on this 
					mission a Technical Sergeant was on board giving the crew and radio operator up to date 
					training on the radio systems. The bomber took off late in the day and turned toward Winnfield.
					The skies began to darken as a weather front slowly came through the area. When the bomber 
					arrived over the target area, right at dusk, it flew right into the path of a cold front. The cold front 
					brought forth severe thunderstorms that greatly hampered the visibility of the pilot and crew, 
					with the base weather section advising of less than two miles of visibility and closing. As the 
					weather turned even more for the worse, the base weather section advised the control tower at 
					Alexandria Field to advise all planes flying at this time to land well in advance before the 
					conditions at the airfield worsened. But due to these severe weather conditions this B-17 
					experienced radio receiving and transmitting problems. Only scratchy bits and pieces of 
					information were received at the base. As the weather got worse the B-17 turned due west as 
					the crew tried to outrun and fly under the weather front. The B-17 dropped down in an attempt 
					to get under the weather front so it could make a turn east/southeast to get back to its home 
					base and flew low over two houses in the Gum Springs Community. The bomber struck a 
					sixty-five foot tall pine tree, shearing off the left wing, causing the plane to crash into the ground. 
					The location of the site was determined to be nine miles west/southwest of Winnfield at the 
					Gum Springs Community. The Base Operations Officer led a convoy of men and equipment 
					from Alexandria Field to the location in the National Forest. When arriving it was found that 
					there was not an actual road into the site area. Army Engineers began building a quick road 
					into the area; this road is in the National Forest and is named ‘Plane Road’. Salvaged 10Mar45.

					Rammed by North American AT-6 41-361 in a simulated attack against nine B-17 bombers and 
					crashed into the Gulf of Mexico off Naples at Little Marco Pass, FL 22Jan44 (10KIS). A newly rated 
					pilot stationed at Buckingham Field on the southwest coast of Florida was training to be a fighter pilot. 
					He took off from Naples Field (a sub-base of Buckingham) on his third flight of the day. His 
					North American AT-6 41-361 was one of the aircraft scrambled to intercept a simulated attack at 4,000ft 
					against nine B-17s of 715th FGTS, also based at Buckingham Field, approaching from the south over 
					the Gulf of Mexico. The flight of AT-6 ‘fighters’ successfully intercepted the B-17s and each made 
					several passes at the B-17s. Following his instructor’s lead the AT-6 student pilot positioned his 
					plane above and behind the seventh bomber to begin his attack out of the sun. The instructor dove 
					on the bomber from astern and broke to the left at about 250 yds. The student closed on the B-17 
					and failed to break away and his left wing struck the left wing of the bomber. The wing of the AT-6 
					sheared off, throwing the plane into a violent roll. Witnesses saw the B-17F, 42-31005, fall onto 
					its left wing and slowly spiral downward. Ten seconds later at 200ft above the Gulf, the plane 
					caught fire and exploded. Salvaged 23Jan44
				31006 (MSN 6120) United Air Lines, Modification Center #10, Cheyenne Municipal Airport, WY 3Sep43. 
					Pilot School (Specialized, Four Engine), Hobbs Field, NM. Crashed twenty miles southwest of 
					Salt Flat, TX 10May44 (5KIS). It went out of control while flying in formation, due to what is 
					believed to have been a materials/mechanical failure in the oxygen system. The bomber took 
					off from Hobbs Field on a routine formation training flight to El Paso, TX and then a return 
					back to base. The aircraft was flying in formation at an altitude of 25,000ft. They made their 
					destination of El Paso and turned for a heading to Salt Flat. The B-17 veered sharply to the right 
					towards another aircraft and disappeared through the overcast layer. No further contact was 
					made with any of the crew. It was thought that the aircraft had gotten into the propeller wash 
					and at some point would reappear. A local rancher spotted the bomber coming straight down. 
					The aircraft was said to have seemed to level off, and then head back straight down, probably 
					in a stall. The eyewitness was approximately eleven miles away when he saw the aircraft hit 
					the ground and catch fire. Salvaged 11May44.

					The ball turret gunner was wounded by flak. Failed to return from a mission to the industrial areas of Emden, 
					Germany 11Dec43 (6POW:4KIA). The Luftwaffe was waiting for the bombers; the moment the bombers 
					crossed over into mainland Europe, six twin-engine fighter dived out of the sun upon the formation, 
					concentrating all their fire on the lead plane. Once the leader had been downed, the fighters swept 
					through the lead Squadron. Before the deputy lead had a chance to reassemble the formation, a large 
					force of single-engine fighters joined the fray, attacking the other bombers. At the Dutch-German border, 
					somewhere near Nieuwe-Schans, the bomber was hit setting fire to No.2 fuel tank. Five or six airmen 
					were seen to abandon the aircraft, then something happened which still infuriates the people of the 
					village of Finsterwolde. As they watched the destruction of the bomber, the German flak battery 
					of the ‘Steiling Dollard-Sud’, in the Carel Coenraad polder, hurled shells into the helplessly 
					nding fliers who had bailed out. The bomber had been partially abandoned, burned and circled 
					in the sky. Then it crashed, its fuselage cartwheeling end over end. All around a house, fragments 
					came down but, by some miracle, the house was untouched although the children cried for fear. 
					One wing wedged itself upright in the ground. Crashed at Finsterwalde, Groningen, Netherlands.

					Attacked by enemy fighters, ditched 100 yds offshore at Calvi, Corsica. On the turn over the target area,
					two engines failed forcing the airplane to skid towards the outside of the formation. The first 
					attack came from dead astern at which time the tail guns on the bomber jammed. A second fighter, 
					spotting the lack of firing from the rear turret, came into point-blank range before firing, killing the 
					radio operator, a waist gunner and wounding the other waist gunner also causing light wounds 
					to the two other gunners. A third fighter made his pass, but the wounded gunner from his top turret 
					opened fire and the fighter was seen to explode, the turret guns becoming inoperative at the time. 
					A fourth fighter fell to the gunner from his ball turret and the combined work of the bombardier 
					and navigator claimed another fighter destroyed. Five minutes following the attack American 
					P-47 Thunderbolt fighters escorted the bomber. First aid was given the wounded, but with 
					only two engines functioning, the other gunners began stripping the ship of all excess weight. 
					As the pilot sighted the airfield at Calvi, Corsica, a third engine failed. Not having enough 
					power and losing altitude, the pilot elected to ditch. All but the pilot and co-pilot crowded
					into the radio room, taking the dead with them. The plane hit the water approximately 100 yards
					from shore, breaking up under the impact. The airmen climbed into life rafts dragging the 
					wounded but were unable to save the bodies of their dead comrades. 
					The B-17 wreck is north of Calvi, at the foot of a small green lighthouse. At one time, some 
					people had the idea to salvage the wreck to sell the aluminium. It was during such an operation 
					that the wreck was broken. Later, a diver discovered a wallet which had belonged to one of the 
					killed machine gunners. Divers cut blades off the propellers while the cockpit was destroyed by an 
					anchor. In 2012 US Navy divers, assigned to Mobile Diving and Salvage Unit 2, Company 4, 
					and the Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command, placed the American flag and the POW/MIA flag on the wreckage.
					The wreck is still down there.

					42-31060 hit the tail of 43-39149. The rear part of the fuselage - from the waist window back - was torn 
					from 43-39149. The aircraft was seen going down out of control in two pieces. 42-31060 dropped down 
					about 10,000ft below the formation and seemed to be under control. It followed the formation for about 
					45 minutes and was then lost from sight. The collision knocked out two engines on the right wing with 
					oil and gasoline all over the wing. With two engines lost, altitude could not be maintained. It was also 
					apparent that the B-17 could not buck a head wind and get back to England. The pilot asked for a heading 	
					to fly towards the nearest Russian lines. After about an hour flying in heavy cloud cover the B-17 started to 
					pick up ice on the wings and continued to lose altitude. The crew threw out guns and other heavy items 		
					and were able to reach the front lines where the Germans and Russians were fighting. When over the Russian
