There are amazingly accurate records of the 8th USAAF available on-line..logs of every mission flown, and the results, including losses.
It would take a research assistant probably 15 minutes to find out what ultimately happened to every plane in the first 6 pictures in the story, and would have made a good article memorable.

This isn’t a challenge to the accuracy of your statement about 8th Air Force records. Would you give me links? I would appreciate it. I have been looking for such records for a long time. I had a late cousin who was a top-turret gunner/flight engineer. I would like to track his missions.
I guess I’m not the online researcher some are.
