Crash site of B-24 11593 Black Maria II, capt. John H. Payne, 11 january 1943

After a lot of informations, news and photos, today the Salerno 1943 Air Finders finally explored thanks to help of Giovanni Marino the crash site of B-24 11593 Black Maria II of John H. Payne, shot down 11 january 1943 after bombing Naples.

Other crew members:

Merle J. Andrews - Springfield, Illinois
Cecil G. Buttram -Crossville, Tennessee
Harold C. Vanness - Sicily-Rome American Cemetery, Italy

Julius P. Lewis, navigator
The two survivors were Robert R. Krager and Theodore D. Drazkowski.
Krager was from Nebraska and became POW in a camp in Austria, while Drazkowski was held in a POW camp in Italy. He was from Michigan.
