I remember coming across this story about five years ago when I was reading about another damaged B17.
Googling, 'Ye Older Pub B17 photo' staggering to think that Stigler didn't 'down' Brown's aircraft! Very emotional interview on YouTube too.
I will most certainly have to read that book. There was talk of a film too. Let's hope it doesn't turn into the awful mess that 'Red Tails' did.
