748th Bomb Squadron, Callsign Unknown, B-17G, Failed to Return - Flak - Gelsenkirchen, 02/16/1945
A view of Lt Brazier's plane showing the starboard wing in flames. This was on a mission to Gelsenkirchen, Germany on Feb 16, 1945. I describe this episode in my story about "FLAK". Six members of the crew died in the ensuing crash....four were POW's
