No. 2 engine was shot up by German fighters, left wing and the inboard fuel tank were on fire. Seven of the crew managed to bail out before the B-17 crashed.

Exclamation Re: B. 17 serial 42-5849(384 BG)

You have many informations of this crash in " La Bretagne dans la bataille de l'Atlantique" Roger Huguen Editions Coop Breizh.(PAGES 530 à 535)
It's a very good book with many informations about the raids and crashes of RAF and USAAF over Britanny ( Nantes, St Nazaire, Rennes, Brest...).
FRiendly

By my self I'm looking for all Luftwaffe crashes in Nantes area... If some friends can help me... Thanks for all
Alain
