MACRs from 15aaf not on Fold3

Hello,

I need some MACRs of 15AAF planes that are not available on Fold3.

Here is the list:
- 42-52229?, MACR 3294 454bg, 736sq, March 19. 1944. (Earl Ostheimer and Carl Lanier)
- 42-30381, 97bg, 341sq, April 3. 1944. (William Johnston, Robert Daniels etc)
- unknown serial#, 465bg, 783sq, June 30. 1944. (Lubie Roberson and William Rogers)

For them, I have Escape statements, and I need remaining crew members, and what happened to them (ie PoW, KIA, MIA etc).
First page of MACR, with names, would probably be enough for that.

Thank you, Leendert.
But this has brought more questions...

- of 3 KIA members, only one is buried in Yugoslavia
- Lovis Weixelman is listed as RMC, did he also evaded?

Re: MACRs from 15aaf not on Fold3

There is a long but interesting interview with Louis H Weixelman here:

http://memory.loc.gov/diglib/vhp/sto...2001001.34556/

The story is a little confusing as he jumps back and forth in time while telling it.

I got it.
Crew landed on border between Hungary and Yugoslavia, part of it in Hungary, part in Yugo.
