Hi RSwank and all,

is this plane 42-10453?

Info on 57th FG web is with prefix 42:

In the MACR, there is 41 ? probably typo
http://www.57thfightergroup.org/macr/1409.html

If the serial number is 42-10453, it is this machine? Still in desert camo?

Re: Unknown aircraft Dubrovnik 28.11.1943.

There apparently is an error in the MACR. The MACR as typed shows 41-10453 but there is correction comment in the version in fold3.com giving the number as 42-10453. When you put your cursor over the serial number in the MACR, the correction window pops up.

The eye-witness statement by Lt Novy (MACR page 7) refers to Turner's plane as #32, which appears to be the number of the plane in the picture.

The MACR in the National Archives does not show the "correction".

https://catalog.archives.gov/id/90905529

For those with fold3, here is the MACR page that "pops up" the correction.

Sorry for the confusion.

Antun, do you live near the supposed crash-site? If yes, I would talk to local fishermen and see if anyone knows of a wreck in that area. Danny
