BIGpanzer has not posted here for several years (this thread is from back in 2006) but Larry Wright has contacted me so we are checking this.

Here's a database of crashed allied aircraft for eastern Lower Saxony: http://www.avres-neustadt.de/database/

Last weekend our local newspaper printed a photo of an american bomber which crashed in the village of Wendessen near Wolfenbuettel on May 8th 1944 shot down during a raid on Braunschweig.

According to the database mentioned above it was a B-24 (Serial No. 42-94806) downed by Flak and fighters. Three crew members got killed in the crash landing.
