Hello Alain,
Have you got it right ?
305th Bomb Group Squadron's were -
364th
365th
366th
422nd.
No 363rd.

Also with the a/c serial number, #414.
On the 30th November 1944 at least two B17's made landings away from home.

48141, 365th BS, regained 9th January 1945.
And
46605, regained 13th January 1945.

Alex

Thank you Ed, Yes the aircraft was lost after the incident that Alain was asking about, having been returned to the Group in January '45.
Not the same crew though.

Thanks Alex. Not the same crew was expected. I just thought I'd add the footnote.


Best,
