I agree Dave, a tragic waste of young lives. These men were just a few of the 20,000 or so young Americans who gave their lives for OUR freedom in the air war over Europe during the Second World War.


Here is a link to a website with details about the crash as well as a similar incident which occurred in Battle, East Sussex on the same day:
