Date Lost: 7-Mar-45
Serial Number: 42-51343
Aircraft Model B-24J-
Aircraft Letter: K
Aircraft Name: SHAZAM

Location: Norfolk County England
Cause: On March 7, 1945, Lt. Williams crew was scheduled on a mission to bomb oil and communication facilities as well as railway marshaling yards at Soest, Germany. The weather at take-off was very bad. Clouds and icing conditions prohibited anyone from accurately observing the take-off. However, three witnesses state they saw the aircraft as it descended through the clouds. It appeared to level off, a wing separated from the aircraft, and fire broke out. The fuselage impacted the ground near Old Cotessey, England, in Norfolk, and exploded. There were no survivors.

Angert entered the military service on October 14, 1944. (One account states January 15, 1943) with 2 years of college.
He was trained as a Navigator and assigned to the 564th Bomb Squadron of the 389th Bomb Group operating out of Hethel Air Station 114 in England.
