The crew names listed by Terveurn are correct to the best of my knowledge, although I have not run them through the enlistment records database. Many misspellings in 94th records.
Odd that both A/C are shown in MACR's as going down with Lt. Wieand on fold3.com. Also that there are no MACR's for Lts. Wetzel and Ecklund who were lost on the same mission. Also that the Wieand MACR was filled out in 1946. The 333rd and 410th Squadrons were attached to the 306th when arriving in April 1943. Some crew members filled in on 306th crews and a crew would fill in with the 306th at times. It was a matter of flying whichever A/C were available at the time and the 94th did fly 306th A/C here and there and vice versa. Although the 306th formation chart has some penciled in info which is somewhat illegible it appears 42-3127 may have been on loan to the 94th from the 306th in May 43 and they used a different A/C in its place. It is "thought" that Lt. Wieand flew #127, however no concrete evidence yet as many records from early 1943 are still missing. The 94th moved to Earle's Colne on 25 May and then to Bury St. Edmunds on 13 June and some boxes of records may have been lost in transit.
If we knew what actually happened to 42-29682 it would go a long way to clearing up the mystery. I will keep working on it. Regards, Marc
