My father-in-law was the Babll; turret gunner on B-17 42-3486, which went down in the Zuider Zee 1/11/1944. He parachuted to safety, along with 2 other crew members. I understand thAt 42=3486 was recovered from IJsselmeer in 1967. Also, an on board camera still contain onwe photo of another B-17 in flight. I am intertested in learningnthe whereabouts of the remains of the aircraft, as ell as the location of crew, those who survived and those who did not. Can anyone be of help to me?

Goedendag, wij hebben met vissen een propellerblad gevonden van een Junker 88, zier er nog erg goed uit voor iets wat al 60 jaar op de bodem ligt. We hebben ook een siemens gyromagnetisch kompas gevonden, en een 7.93mm kannon, ook beide van de Junker 88. Mocht iemand intresse hebben, laat het even weten. Mvgr M.M. Westerneng

I am the son of JG Moriarty the Navigator on a Whitley V BD201-L shot down and crashed near Wervershoof by a german night fighter following the 1000 bomber raid on Bremen. The flight was from 10 OTU stationed in Abingdon.

I would be interested in any information any one has.

I visited my fathers grave in Bergen Op Zoom in June 2006.

Flt. Sgt Earl Stewart Rheaume, R111159 RCAF Iroquois Squadron, KIA.

On June 12th 1943 his Wellington HE 392 Bomber was returning to England from a bombing raid on Dusseldorf Germany. It was shot down just short of the English Channel by a German Nightfighter.

My father and his four comrades were all killed when their aircraft crashed into a farmers field in North Holland.

My fathers body was recovered almost immediately following the crash and buried by German soldiers and Dutch farmers. He was the tail gunner and was thrown away from the crash upon impact. His comrades were recovered some fifty years later by the ARG. All are buried within fifty yards of each other in the Bergen Op Zoom Canadian Military Cemetery.

My visit to Holland was filled with wonderful caring and sharing memories from several German and Dutch families who fed and housed me.

I will return to Holland and my Dad's grave to be sure.

I am looking for information about an aircraft discovered in the IJsselmeer. ED603 OL-L.
An engine and various parts were salvaged in 1997.
Does anyone have any other information about this wreckage. It was that of my uncle CFJ Sprack.
Does any one know if the aircraft has been salvaged or if there were any remains found on the aircraft.
Hoping for more info.
DaveD
