It was early in the morning when you drove down to Lake Alvin just outside Sioux Falls. The sun was about to rise and the fresh summer air calmed you. It felt like this was the thousandth night you woke up from a nightmare. So you decided to come here like you always did when everything got too much to handle.

This place was you escape. There were hundrets of memories attached to it.

The first time you kissed someone was at this lake with Dean when you were ten.

The first time you made love with someone was at this lake with Dean when you were sixteen.

The first time he told you he loved you was at this very lake, under the stars on a warm summer night many many years ago.

But now he was no longer with you.

It was unbearable to sleep without Dean next to you. You were exhausted and sleep deprived but there was little you could do about it. Every night when you closed your eyes, his face would haunt you in your dreams. He would beg you to save him from the torture he was enduring and every night you would wake up, covered sweat with tears running down your face.

You got out of one of Bobby’s cars and walked towards the small pier. You took your shoes off on your way there, the old wood under your foot soles feeling rough and dry. Sitting down on the edge of the pier, you let your feet dangle over the water.

According to T/Sgt. Lindley G. Miller, right waist gunner in the lead B-24, “She was hit by a FW-190 in the attack ….the main tanks burst into flame, after which the ship went into a spin to the left. After dropping approximately five thousand feet, the ship exploded”. There were no parachutes seen leaving the plane as it went down near Turnitz, Austrianat 11.16am.
No search for survivors could be made as the plane went down over enemy territory.

Stautsenberger had flown with the crew of the 'Extra Joker’ as their cameraman, but on that fateful day they asked him to fly on another plane to take photo’s of the'Joker’ in flight . Thanks to this coincidence Leo lived and made a series of shots of the loss of the aircraft. He said about this picture: “I felt guilty, helplessly snapping a picture while the men were burning inside. It happened so fast they didn’t have much of a chance , I had photographed a picture of death, with the crew burning inside. It happened so quickly that they had little chance of surviving.”
