    My father-in-law was Ed Stoelting. He was captured on the last mission of this B-17. The plane was not hit by flak but severely damaged by one of its bombs exploding close underneath the aircraft. Ed was actually blown out of the plane before it exploded. I would like any information on which POW camp Ed went to.
