Your father was the pilot on ship 24 (42-51694). My father, S/SGT James F. Carney, was the Zimmerman crew nose gunner. The ball gunner on the Zimmeran crew, S/SGT Arthur Ouellette, submitted his recollection of when ship 24 was hit with flak and made a crash landing at an RAF in Italy. Go to Torrretta Flyer #34 page 10. My father spoke of your grandfather many times over the years as he did the entire crew. You can see a picture of your grandfathers crew in Torretta Flyer #30 page 30.
