1 flyver fra B17 42-30394 blev begravet i Kirkeby på Rømø og 1 i Esbjerg, 1 i Belgien og 1 i USA. 6 flyvere overlevede. De blev alle krigsfanger.

MACR p196 B17 42-30401: "4 amerikanske bombefly styrtede i Nordsøen mellem den tyske kyst og Helgoland den morgen." (Måske omkring her).
De 3 af dem må være B17 42-30401 * B17 42-3316 * B17 42-30394.
