I am searching for a touch with the Family or Friends of the KIA Airman :

ALLAN T. BENNETT , Radio Operator , 14084465 , Killed In Action after the bombing of Innsbruck Target , Austria.
He was 19 years old, from Tampa , Florida , at his 1st mission , descending by chute from the burning B-17F Fortress serial # 42-5409 hit by a German fighter.
A German soldier from the ground hit him with his gun.
Near Palmanova , Friuli Region , Northern Italy. Sunday 19 December 1943 .
Pilot was the 2nd Lt. Robert D. Peterson , 2nd Bomb Group , 429th Bomb Squadron. All 9 Crewmembers saved their lives and after POW.
His grave is in the American Military WWII Cemetery of Florence , Firenze , Italia .

I await every interesting info and meeting with Relatives of Allan , an unlucky Soldier that I found during my study around that Day of war.
I have many info and pictures about the last flight of this Plane , the crash place and the Crew.
My purpose is can save the Memory of Allan Bennet.
ROY K. SNYDER was the tail gunner who helped him before the death.

Giorgio Pietrobon . 68 . Treviso . Italia .
