Sequence of Picutres Left to Right:

The first photo shows Joe Vukovich (according to the underground) bailing from Fifinella on August 13, 1944. Engineer and Top Turret Gunner Charles Sturgeon, who bailed out of Fifinella, feels that if the person in the photo is using a seat chute without the leg straps then it is him (Charles) in the photo (read his story for more details). The second photo shows Fifinella in a dive just before crashing.  The third photo shows Fifinella after crashing into the ground around noon that day.
