Its seems this picture is part of a series on display (near the A20 exhibit at the USAF Museum Dayton, OH.). The airplane and crew were lost in the attack, the series shows the crash. Awesome Courage.

The sequence was included in the jacket cover of Columbia Records Victory at Sea Vol 3. I must have been 7 or 8 when I first saw it. "People DIE in war..."
