Lost 9 Mar 45, GER - MACR 12959 - Pilot William F. Hunter (564th BS)

Info Contributor - Chris Gregg
MACR #12959 (10 KIA/2 POW) is pretty sparse at 4 pages, but there is an eyewitness account that describes a scene very similar to the photo. Over the target area, the aircraft was seen to make two sudden turns, nose down, wings blew off, and ship broke into flaming pieces.
