Crew members of B-17 "Hi Ho Silver"

Hi,
I am searching the ranks and names of the crew members of the B-17 43-3787/JW-C "Hi Ho Silver" (92 BG 326 BS) which crash landed at Nivelles (B-75) in Belgium on Tuesday April 17th 1945. Any info will appreciated. Thanks.

    Hi Howard,
    Already done, but without success. They haven't the names of the crew members for that mission.
    Thanks for your help.

    Hi Montana,
     
    For what it's worth there's a digit missing from your serial number,
    should be 43-37847.  43-3787 was a B-25.  This is Joe Baughers listing:
     
    43-37847 (92nd BG, 326th BS, "Hi Ho Silver") force landed Apr 17, 1945
    following battle damage incurred during mission to Dresden.
    Salvaged Apr 20, 1945.  Presumably force-landed at
    Nivelles Airfield in Belgium, since there is a photo taken
    there Aug 1945 showing this plane broken into two parts

     
    Haven't been able to find crew information in any of my sources.  Sorry.
