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.

Notes 1-4 courtesy of Joe Urice (4 Apr 2006)
(1) "The PARD aircraft just happened to be conveniently available when they decided to take the picture"
(2) "Eilers - This man was probably a radar operator who flew with the crew on approximately two missions at the end of their missions" (see mission list below)
(3) In an undated letter from Harry Cruver to Joe Urice: "This [unknown] is probably 1st Lt. [M.] Eilers.
(4)"Also see Cruver's blackboard picture of a 351st crew availability list that shows Eilers as BTG. That is the same way Wofford's radar man was shown on the list that day."
(5) Eilers identified as A. J. Eilers by Michael Faley 4 Apr 2006.
