Since 10 years I am looking for the crash place that never was found from the Military Mortuary Services when the war ended and which seems still today forgotten.
I copied all the names as written by Aleksandar Kolo , the Historian of the Air Museum in Belgrade , Serbia , who is Author of the documented Book “ Sky Odyssey “ with the whole story of the 4 Liberators assigned to Yugo Crews - 3 lost in combat - , called in the 15th Air Force USAAF : Yugoslav Detachment .
Thanks to Kolo and all the new contributors in news and contacts.
