Hello, i'm micky from italy, i'm an historical researcher about air war over my country.
Two weeks ago, looking for a brazilian P-47 crash site, i have found an old witness who told me about an unknow german plane crashed near San Bernardino (north of Reggio Emilia) in spring 1944.
Sadly, he doesn't remember the exact date, but remember large formations of american and german planes. One of these, hit, came down in the ground, and left only few wreck in surface around a big hole. The pilot seems to be baled out safely. Few months after, the witness was collecting the ammo around the crater, when one of these exploded, cutting his left fingers and his left eye. According to his description, the round seems to be a 13mm explosive shell. The combat happens in the morning, around march-april 1944, the american formaation was heading north, anyone can identify this loss or have any idea?
many thanks in advance
