Jarek,

It appears that the 3.3.44 mission was to the Berlin area.

On 11.4.44 however there was a mission to Stettin/Szczecin and a candidate for a loss at/near Stargard/Szczecinsk may be B-17G 42-97243 of 92nd BG/325th BS with Lt Charles Easly (10 POW, MACR 3674).

But info welcome about a more precise location for that loss.

Regards,

Leendert

Hi !
some sources say that this one came down at Werben at 08.03.1944
but others say it landed at Vaerloese Denmark.
