'Willy' (42-30106)

Hello, I am Gabor Horvath, an amateur Aviation historian (in Canada). My fellows in Hungary have found the remails of 'Willy' (42-30106) in the forest between Marianosztra and Kospallag, in Northern Hungary. Willy went down on June 27, 1944 during a raid on Budapest. The entire crew became POW. (We also have a photo of the other downed 301. BG B-17F on this day, its tail section with a big white 'C' (353. BS) among the houses of Budapest. This one crashed in the intersection of Nagykorosi and Albert streets.) Since I would like to make a color profile of 'Willy', please send me (in e-mail) the nose art of her. (It can be 'Sloppy Piss Willy' too). My fellows, who recovered the remains in the forest with the Boeing logo on it would be more than happy... Thanks in advance, Sincerely, Gabor
