B-17; 44-8744; lost at 7.4.45; Pilot Lt. Burich; 385BG / 550BS

Hello,

I search for photos of the crew and the B-17
of 2nd. Lt. George E. Burich. 385th BG / 550th BS
His B-17 was rammed by an unknown German Bf109 in my home area in Germany at the 7th of April 1945.
I know the MACR 13721.

Many thanks

Rüdiger / Germany
