Loss of 13th BS B-26B 44-34263 in Korea

Can anyone confirm the correct details for the loss of 13th BS B-26B 44-34263 in Korea please?
"Fury from the North" says it was destroyed by own forces when they evacuated Taejon on 20Jul50.
Baugher says it crashed 28Jul50 near Chonju after engine fire caused by small arms fire.

Ed,
Thanks, but the author of that article is the same guy that wrote "Fury from the North", so ideally I'm still looking for confirmation from another source.

Are you sure the tail number is correct? I did a search on the US air losses in Korea, no US aircraft with tail number 44-34263 was lost in Korea, and there was no US B-26 losses on 20Jul50 (actually there was not a single US loss on Jul201950), however 13th BS did lost a B-26B loss on 28Jul50, the cause was "Hit by gnd fire, flying on one engine, crashed into mountain ridge near Chong Ju" , three crew members were killed

Thanks for the reply.
Serial 44-34263 seems to be the one quoted by every source I can find.
I even found an earlier post on this forum mentioning it:
http://forum.12oclockhigh.net/showpo...35&postcount=5
This one goes for the "destroyed by own forces" answer...

Perhaps also take a look here. 44-34263 lost on 28 Jul 1950..

In the Korean War Airloss Database, the tail number for this B-26 is 44-34234, NOT 44-34263, I cannot find the tail number 44-34263 in that database
