    Urvin J. Laperriere was my uncle, looking for anyone who would have any info on their last mission or pictures of the crew and plane.

      Hello Ricky,

      finally, I found a crew photo and uploaded it the this B-17.
      It show Lt. King crew.
      Maybe your uncle is also on the photo.
      Can you identify him?
