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.

RWG: Col William L. Kennedy - O-17936

POS: RWG STATUS: POW STATE: State N/A
Colonel Kennedy was in charge of gunnery training in the States and was in the ETO on an inspection tour; he elected to go on the Regensburg mission to observe "his gunners," as he always referred to aerial gunners in the Eighth. He was, off course, under no obligation to fly combat missions and had to use his rank with the 100th Operations Officer to be allowed to fly. Colonel Kennedy was one of a very few state-side officers to gain the respect of the 100th's combat personnel.
