Re:Parts from a USA WWII aircraft. Some idea?
A second look at some of the parts could also be from a B-17...but, there will have to be better identification of the parrs...such as a part number. to positively identify which aircraft.
What is the date of the crash ? ....if you know that.
The list I referred to,... is listed by aircraft serial number...and not by date of missing in action...if I had the date of the crash, it would still take some searching to determine the aircraft number.
A Missing A ir Crew R eport...or MACR is made out by accompanying aircrews, and does not always show the actual crash site...only that the last observation of the aircraft,... was that it was in trouble, and, going down, with the actual crash unobserved by the reporting aircrews..sometimes many miles from the first observed troubles.
