Re: B-17 loss to night fighter

I am almost certain that the day is the 22nd of March. The B-17 pilot's name is Kneemeyer. One thing I considered is that the encounter could have been listed as a possible. Also the fact that it was at night, the B-17 could have been mistaken for another type of heavy bomber. I thought that the fact that the encounter happened over an English airfield may have narrowed down the possibilities.
