There is a B-17G at the 390th BG Museum at Pima Air Museum,Tucson,Arizona. There is also a website for the 390th BG at the Museum. < [url "http://www.390th.org"]http://www.390th.org[/url] >
There is a email address for the Researcher at the [url "mailto:Museum....email@example.com"]Museum....firstname.lastname@example.org[/url] That person may be of help.
As to surviving crewmembers..suggest you contact the 390th BG Association, and also perhaps use the whitepages website [url "http://www.whitepages.com"]www.whitepages.com[/url] to attempt to contact any crewmembers still alive, if the 390th BG does not have an address for them. Some of them may not be aware that the 390th BG Association exists.
If you wnat a copy of the MACR...(M issing A ir C rew R eport) go to the top of this page and across the top will be several sections....click on Research and there is the address for obtaining a copy of the MACR.
You should also obtain a copy of the IDPF...Individual Deceased Perwonnel File which is in the same section.
There is another webiste...[url "http://www.americanwardead.com"]http://www.americanwardead.com[/url] This is the American Battle Monuments Commission ..Fabian Paul name is on the Tablets of the Missing at Ardennes American Cemetery at Neupre,Belgium.
