Looking for nose art and survivor information on 42-51283.
I am researching the father of a friend of mine at his request.
I have the MACR number and such but what I am interested in is:
1. Anyone know the Nose Art and name for “283”?
2. Also, anyone else family members of the crew?
I am asking on behalf of the son of the BT gunner.
Thanks in advance….
