RE: B-24 Tail Markings
Just a note:
The photo is of 42-40402 "The Sandman" lost on 19 Dec. 1943. A Documentary film by an Italian film co. has just been released. It is narrated in Italian Language and tells the story of the loss, location and efforts to identify the aircraft and crew. statements of Italians on the ground who saw the shoot down. some are still living. It is titled "The Lost Bomber of the Dolomites" I have a copy along with the English translation, as I worked with the Rastelli Film Company and Anna Claudia Racco, the producer, helping with the history of the aircraft, identifying the crew and locating relatives of the deceased crew members.
The Documentary is scheduled to be released VIA the History Channel some time in the future.
