    Hi Jean Paul,
      I checked the 305th Bomb Group Anthology regarding Ralph Olbert. According to the Anthology one B-17 went down on 05/13/43 on a mission to Meaulte France. The serial # was 42-29647. Ralph Olbert is not listed as being part of the crew. Another source says that the plane crashed in France and there were no survivors of the Harold Pierce crew. You may want to check the name or the date of the mission, I only see one mission to Meaulte and it was 05/13/43. I hope this helps.

    Looking for anyone who knew or flew with my uncle 2nd Lt. Joseph B Onorato. 305th BG 365th squadron , he was KIA Feb 26 1943 aboard B-17 41-24623.

    Hello all,
     
    I only see two missions for Ralph Olbert - the one on 5/13/43 to Meaulte with the Pierce crew and one on May 1st to St Nazaire with the same crew.
     
    Both in the same B-17, 42-29647 which had no nickname.
