      Does anyone have a a clear picture of the Fort Worth Jail House ( B17 G) 44-8436H mentioned in the above posts that crashed and burned at Sidown Hill in May 1945? I was in the UK a couple of weeks ago and read about the crash and now I would like to model this aircraft. I have found only one picture of 44-8436H and it was a painting and the nose art was not readable . If anyone has such a picture please contact me at jw1952725@yahoo.com
