text and info from http://www.warbirdsresourcegroup.org...7fortress.html


"B-17F-90-BO "Down and Go!"
B-17F-90-BO "Down and Go!" was surely cursed plane. Problems with plane piloted by Lieutenant Ned Palmer begun soon after take off. Both inner engines failed and pilot was forced to disable them. Crew wanted to drop some bombs on Germany and flew forward. Shortly before target engine number four overheated and pilot had to disable it too. Navigator set course on Sweden but plane has landed on Wehrmacht exercise field in Avedore Holme, Denmark. Plane was encircled by German soldiers but crew was able to destroy secret Norden gunsight. Plane was transported to city Kastrup, Denmark where was repaired by Heinkel plants' engineers. After repairs and traditional period of trials in Rechlin plane was transfered to KG 200 in Spring 1944 and coded A3+EE (however later had code A3+BB)."

Re: eBAy: Captured American planes

I can't see the photos in the first post, so I hope these photos of "Down And Go!" in US livery currently on ebay are not the same ones.

This occurred when 12 P-38s of the 48th Squadron, themselves on a TacR mission, encountered ten Bf 109s, one of which 1/Lt Virgil Smith claimed shot down; two more were claimed as probables and another as damaged. However, one US fighter flown by 2/Lt Cole failed to return. Fw Anton Hafner of 4./JG 51 claiming a P-38 south-east of Tunis at 1447.
