The engine number might be recorded in an MACR.
It's not too clear in the photo: AC 41-57372? 41-57072?

From the 1942 delivery date you are probably looking at a B-17F rather than a G, so that should narrow your search quite a bit.

If this crash site is in Bois des Moinas near Avrechy then the airplane would be B-17F 42-3455 "Lucky Thirteen"
