Research Heinkel He-177 - 8 June 1944

Hello,

In order to complete my next book, I’m looking informations about an Heinkel He-177 straffed and shot down on 8 June 1944.

This plane was shot down at 17h10 near Angoulême, near the town of Claix (south west of France) and was straffed by Lieutenant William J McGinty with the help of Lieutenant Cleveland J Brien Jr (355th Fighter Group).

About what I found, there was 4 soldiers injured and 1 soldier killed.

Can you help me to find informations about the unit of this plane and the name of the crew members ?

Thanks in advance

Hello,

That’s so incredible !!! I searched these informations for so many years, thanks a lot.

When there is a «*+*» at the end of the soldier’s name, is because they are dead ?
Is it possible to find where they are buried ?
Do you know if it’s «*easy*» to find a photo from this plane ?

I know where this plane was shot down, I have to go to detect there.

Thanks again for your help.

In answer to two of your questions:

+ = dead
