I search Information to the B-24 with Ser.No. 42-100085
B-24J lost Feb 20, 1944 on mission to Brunswick, Germany. Two pages from MACR 2434 attached. Exploded in mid-air. Appears that most of the crew survived.
Matthias & Hal, I have about this aircraft ;
B-24J # 42-100285, 44th BG / 66th BS. Pilot was 2/Lt. David R.Talbot
Assigned targets were obscured by cloud and LR Targets were attacked. On return aircraft ran out of gas and at 16.12hrs
attempted a crashlanding at Woodlands Farm,Holbrook,Suffolk, but hit a tree and an electricity pylon causing extensive damage
to the aircraft. The Engineer and RWG suffered major injuries and the B & TG suffered minor. 10 RTD.
O sorry mistake,
B-24J # 42-100085, 389th BG/ 564th BS with pilot 2/Lt. Warren R.Blakeman
Target Brunswick,Germany. A large hole appeared in the left wing after fighter attacks. Seven crew
baled out before aircraft exploded at 13.32hrs and crashed near Lamspringe.Neuhof. 3 KIA, 7 POW
When you want the whole crew and burials let me know.
