    Hello ,

    On january 1943 these B-17 had a midair collision during a raid to Lille France.The crewmembers off 24498 who were killed are buried in Epinal France , the one from 24471 is buried at Margraten Holland.
    Is there someone who has an idea where the ships came down.

    Regards
    Alain
