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 1944-12-31 11:47

MACR: 11363 AIRCRAFT: 43-38124
TARGET: Hamburg, Germany TYPE: B-17G
BASE: Thorpe Abbotts, Norfolk, England NAME: Aircraft name N/A
SQUADRON: 351st BS - 100th BG (H) AIRCRAFT CODE: EP-S
CRASH:

Crashed Hamburg-Finkenwaerder in the Free Port Dradenau. Collided with 42-31066, piloted by Floyd E. Henderson, after being hit by flak and both aircraft were destroyed. According to German reports T/Sgt McGinley was buried in the communal cemetery of Hamburg-Finkenwaerder. The casualties were interred in adjoining graves at the families request. A German report, attached to the MACR, states that Carpenter was the pilot of a P-51 that crashed at 1200 hours into the Muehlenwaerder Gartenkolonie, Hamburg Harbor. Only fragments were found and they were buried at location found. This report appears to have no connect to the MACR 11363 and this is almost certainly not S/Sgt Lee F. Carpenter of this crew.
