Lt Frank Lonsdorf named his B-25 Combat Bomber after his sweetheart back home "Janice M Krantz", born 1924, Carbondale, PA. Lt Frank called her his "Duchess"..... He had completed 62 Combat Missions and returned to the States. In 1945, Lt Lonsdorf died in a tragic and unforeseen car/bus accident. His 3 passengers also died, 2 service friends and a young lady. In the bus, many were severely hurt including the driver who had a back injury. It was an unbelievable loss for the Community of Scranton PA.
