    With all respect to the crew members that did not survive,I was hoping to get a copy of this photo. My printer will not do justice to the photo. Please let me know if you can help me. Thank You, Michael Redmon

    According to that page the only survivor was the bombardier, Lt. Edward F. Walsh, Jr.

    Also, according to that page the photo was taken by Leland Conrad, a radio operator on another plane.
