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.

Casualty Report from 1945-04-07

MACR: 13716 AIRCRAFT: 44-8334
TARGET: Buchen, Germany TYPE: B-17G
BASE: Thorpe Abbotts, Norfolk, England NAME: Aircraft name N/A
SQUADRON: 349th BS - 100th BG (H) AIRCRAFT CODE: XR-M
CRASH:

Damaged by fighters prior to the target. The bombs were salvoed and the aircraft attempted to return along. The crew were forced to abandon the damaged 334 near Helen, Germany. Crash site is unknown. The surviving crewmembers reported considerable small arms fire on the ground and it is believed those killed were shot by Germany civilians. British and American ground troops were already in the area plus the fact German military personnel as a matter of policy did not harm airmen not attempting to escape, the airmen were almost certainly killed by civilians. This type of conduct by German civilians became all to prevalent near the end of hostilities.
