Do you have a particular Bobmb Group or Squadron number you are researching or total losses for the whole 8th AF for that day??THis may help the aviation researchers

 

For example the 100th Bomb Group was involved in a mission to Schwienfurt bettert known as Black Thursday.THis mission alone saw 60 aircraft lost(yes one mission,one day)Roughly 639 men(numbers vary depending on source) lost on one mission.The worst day on record for the 8th.

 

Here is a link and Im sure there are others.One source may also be the 8th Air Force Historical Association.Most states have chapters.I use to belong to the local wing.
