B-17F 42-3190 from 94th bomb group crash landed in Normandy

Hello everybody,



I'm looking for informations concerning the B-17F 42-3190 who was shot down the 14th july 1943 and crashed landing at Berengeville-la-Campagne. The pilot, Kee Harrisson was helped by Bertrand Bouvier during his escape. I have few photographs to the crash but I know that an article was published, maybe in the book "the big square' to 94th bomb group but I can't obtain it. I research too more informations...



If anyone can help me in my research ?

Best regards
Thank you
Loïc
