The pictures above are from a crash in Italy taken by the pilot, Walker.
They were headed home when Germans hit them and the pilot, Walker, had to keep flying the plane lower and lower until he had to land as the aircraft would no longer fly.
He landed in Italy but there was no threat of ground attack from enemy forces as they had been pushed back from air attacks.
They remained safe until the Air Force came and got them.
