Database Search

You are in the database section of the website.

Select a record category from RECORDS above. When you have selected a category, you will see search options for that category above the record list. 

Most fields require at least three characters. When you submit your query, the search engine will return all records that contain your search term.

Note that when searching for an aircraft serial number, you must enter the full serial number without the leading "4" and without a dash in the Aircraft SN search field. For example, you would enter 42-37772 as 237772.

The Personnel name field searches both last and first names, so if you enter the search term, "Russ", the search engine will return both Russell Abel and James Russell.

You narrow the search by entering more characters into the search field. For example, "Russ" returns many hits. "Russell" returns fewer hits. The same principle applies to all queries.

The POW and KIA categories are list only and are not searchable.

Aircraft: 339258

Another 100th BG Fort. 258 was a late arrival to Thorpe Abbotts and only flew four combat missions (15, 16, 17, and 20 April 1945). She did fly four food missions and four POW missions. Ended her days in the boneyard. 1/72nd Hasegawa basically out of the box. Tail number and ID letter are dry transfer, the "Square D" is masked and painted in all three positions, fuselage codes are from Kitsworld. Insignia came from an Eagle Strike sheet. Full late war markings with the green nose band and prop hubs, black diagonal stripes on the wings (upper right, lower left), and the black rudder. Karl Hauffe
