    congratulation for your website. I thought it could be useful to mention that in some sources, a confusion seem to exist between information concerning two different B 17 named „Cadet nurse“. The one that made a belly landing near Beauraing in Belgium on February 20th, 1945 (pilot: Young and waist gunner Roy) bears serial number 44 6583. The crash did not take place in Florennes or near this airfield. This Flying Fortress is not the one with serial number 44 8179 „aka Yankee Wolf“. Sorry if my short comment is not correct.

      Thank you for the information. Sometimes, it is really confusing by so many B-17s and sources.

      So you mean, the right B-17 is 44-6583, which made a belly landing near Beauraing in Belgium.

      And this B-17 44-8179 did not crash landed there. Correct? And the name is not „Yankee Wolf“? Only Caded Nurse?
