Re: "Canadian" B-17G shot down near Koblenz --I.D ?
I think it unlikely that this is a Canadian aircraft.

More likely it is an RAF plane.B-17G aircraft were known as FORTRESS III in RAF use.
There are 26 recorded losses of Fortress IIIs in Bomber Command.It would be nice if they could propose a relative date of the loss since they're talking to locals.
That it came down near Koblenz is irrelevant since it does not reference where it was GOING, or COMING BACK FROM.
