    This is to update the information for B-17 # 41-24342, nicknamed Stinky, Jr. My dad, Glenn J. Rhodes, Jr. was the Pilot, not the Bombardier. Additionally, there were three known survivors; my dad, Myron Johnson, Waist Gunner, and a third individual who I am still trying to identify. The summary should read „7 killed in action.“
    Thank you.
