The problem I have with Glen Miller being killed by British bombs is, the RAF bombed at night which would have meant that all aircraft returning from a raid would have landed by the time Glen Miller would have taken off.
"The programme, to be broadcast on Channel 4 on New Year's Eve, has established that at 1.40pm on December 15 a fleet of 139 Lancaster bombers returning from an aborted mission to Germany dumped their bombs above the English channel - and right on to Miller's plane." 1:40pm is as far as I am aware way beyond the time British bombers would have landed.
I cannot see the USAAF bombers taking off in such bad weather conditions.
