Re: Most One Sided Luftwaffe Victory over the 8th Air Force

Two very small corrections:
Again according to "Making for Sweden..." the B-17G MACR 4463 "Spirit of Wanett" crashed into the sea north-west of Valse at Falster. Five of the crew baled out and four were taken prisoners, the co-pilot, 2/Lt Kerr escaped to Sweden. Four crew members were found dead, one is still MIA.
Also, the B-24H MACR 4488, "Gipsy Queen", crashed after the whole crew bailed out from the burning a/c, six escaped, three were taken prisoner and one KIA.

Greetings
Hans
