Hello to all
« il: 19 Nov 2015, 17:31:35 »
Greetings from Iowa, USA. My name in Dan Quinn and I am the nephew of Corporal George P. Quinn. George was the tail gunner on a B-24H called "The Bottoms Up" that disappeared over the Adriatic Sea on March 16, 1945. George was with the 15th AF, 450th BG and 721st SQ. They left Manduria on the morning of the 16th to bomb a marshaling yard in Austria and disappeared in clouds never to be seen again. I have been searching, with family members of other crew members for 15 years. There is a website for the BU at www.restlesswings.com with all the information we have. There is also info on other missing aircraft there as well. I appreciate the effort from this site and others in Italy who work hard to find these missing men and I look forward to being a member of this group.
Dan Quinn

Hi Dan, a question: is this book related to your story?

The book is actually about "another" Bottoms Up: B-24J 42-51926, shot down in Croatia 18th Nov. 1944.

The aircraft Dan is interested in is instead B-24H 42-64448; possibly crashed in the Adriatic 16th march 1945, somewhere between Vieste and Dubrovnick, with all crew gone MIA
