I have been looking for B-17F 42-30677 for some time now and here you said that it had been discovered! The navigator, Lt. Jerome K. Hanson, was my mother's cousin. Please give me any information you have- when was it found? What kind of condition was the wreckage? Please let me know...thanks!

I would be interested in hearing from relatives of the last crew of ED858. My Uncle Roy Brown was the navigator.
