This is a great site (http://www.446bg.com) full of photos and stories about the 446th BG (B-24s). The website was set up by the son of one of the nose gunners from a B-24 as a memorial to his father and his buddies.

This is actually quite funny.

446th Bomb Group Commanding Officer Troy Crawford is seen on the right with General Timberlake on the left. Crawford was flying as an observer in an RAF Mosquito when his plane was mistaken for a German ME 262 jet fighter and shot down by his own crews

As this happened very near the end of the war Crawford was liberated from his POW camp only ten days later. You can just imagine the stink when he got back to base!
