Missing SAAF B-24 Liberator 12 October 1944

Hi,

I am trying to find out what happened to South African Air Force Liberator KH158 that went missing on the night of 12 October 1944. They were based at Foggia and were on a supply dropping mission to the Italian Partisans just inland from Genoa. They would have flown west from Foggia and then north-west over the Mediterranean and Ligurian seas to Genoa, on that night the wind changed 180 degrees and it is thought they were further west, possibly over Corsica. Are there any records of crashes on Corsica or can anyone help with this search.

Many thanks,

Martin Urry

Martin, have you been in contact with Anne Storm with regard to this aircraft? I understand that she has been researching the loss for several years now as her father was onboard. Try e-mailing storm04ATglobalnet.co.uk (remove the AT and replace with @)
