A B-17 takes a direct hit over Budapest.  Five men were able to bail out before the plane hit the ground.  You can bet that the pilot and co-pilot were not among them.

B-24 Liberator....My Uncle Chester Guzik was the flight engineer on one during WW2...his plane was shot down over Holland on a return bombing run from Germany...they dropped bombs over a flack factor that made the AA ball bearings...three crew members made it out of the plane before it crashed...Uncle Chester sadly was not one of them...he perished along with four others in the crash. He is buried over in Holland.

While flying over Italy, this B-17 had most of her tail shot away.  Still, the pilot managed to get her home.  When she was hit, the tail-gunner was blown out into her slipstream.  Miraculously, he was uninjured and managed to get his chute open and land safely.  Once on the ground, the greatest threat was not German or Italian soldiers, who usually took them prisoner, but scared or angry peasants who had been told that Brits and Yanks were savage murderous rapists who should be killed on…
