C-47 Ain't Misbehavin bellylanding near Bastogne

During the supply drop over Bastogne on 24/12/1944 a C-47A made a bellylanding near the village off Savy ( on the road from Bastogne to Hemroulle. The name off the aircraft was Ain’t Missbehavin . I only have two names off the crew Lt Skolnick Martin and a man named Frederickson. Does someone can help me with names and fate of the others ?

One, of the same name, crashed on the 27th Dec. Different crew though.

Crew:
Capt. Ernie Turner, pilot;
Lt. Keistutis J. (Casey) Narbutas, co-pilot;
S/Sgt. Richard G. Whitehurst, radio operator
S/Sgt. John E. Douglas, crew chief.
"They had some bumps and bruises, and Sgt. Douglas was shot in the leg, but all survived".

Accoding to the USAAF MACR database, only one c-47 was lost on your date. 43-16114, lost in New Guinea
