And the last (missing) picture tells the story.  He came in from the other direction, hit the scarred tree and spun around, tearing the empennage off.  Wonder where in Jacksonville that happened?  Could be a mall or subdivision there now.  It's also entirely possible that Bob W. (Warbirder) saw that when it happened.  He grew up in Jacksonville and witnessed a few WWII crashes.  Dennis
