    This plane crashed on a hill near our village. It glided and didn’t fall apart. We still have some structural members of the wing at home.

      My mother’s father was the Radio Operator. Charles Herrlein. Do you mind telling me the name of your village? I am trying to make an estimate of where he bailed out. Do you have and pictures of the wreckage?
