    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.
