Hello .
I am an Austrian historian. I did comprehensive research on B24 and B17 crashes in my home area in Austria.
On July 7th.1944 a B24 (B24 H LIBERATOR 205 RAF 178 th.SQ
BZ 930 MK3 42- 64007)crashed . I have located the crash site and talked to eye witnesses. I even could get some pictures of the wreckage.

The names of the crew members are :

KIA:
PILOT Sgt. Bernhard J.Chillingworth,21 ID 1803484 Sgt. Douglas G. Hughes,20 ID 1607189
Sgt. Joseph D. Elvin, ID 1441445 ENGINEER Sgt. Frederick W. Fuce, ID 1710298
SURVIVORS (POW): Sgt. Fisher
Sgt. Hall
Lt. I .King, ID SAAF 542911V

If anybody can provide pictures dealing with this crew or possibly can make contact to interested relatives let me know.
I am working on a documentation and would like to share my information with them.
