Here is some (somewhat confusing) information from the FortLog for plane 44-8329, "Fort Sack". Delivered Hunter 12/8/44; Grenier 3/9/44; Assigned 407BS/92BG [PY-C] Podington 13/9/44; took part in a Disney Bomb Test mission with Capt Oscar D. Whitten on 2/3/45; fire broke out in #3, crew bailed and landed near Hardinghen, Fr, except John Large who was killed due to ‘chute malfunction; one record gives ship exploded with three large fireballs seen, while another source gives Salvaged 9AF Germany 14/6/46. FORT SACK. John William Large grave: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=47231425 (I may have "a line" on Oscar Dwain Whitten, I'll know in a few days.) Hardinghen France is quite close to St Inglevert, France. On 2 March, 1945 a young women was killed in St Inglevert, France when a B-17 exploded over her village. I am trying to help a French researcher identify the plane that exploded. Does anyone have information on 44-8329 and what happened on 2 March 1945? Where did the plane actually come down and at what time of day? There is no MACR or accident report that I can find for this incident. A little background on the Disney Bomb, designed by Edward Terrell. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Disney_bomb The Disney Bomb was a rocket bomb designed to penetrate massive concrete bunkers. The Air Force tested the bomb against the (then liberated) Watten V2 complex in France. Perhaps this March 2nd flight was to be another such test. Here is a short clip on the Disney Bomb also called the Disney Swish.
