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.

1 F/O Charles A. BROOKS CP/P CPT


 Charles A. Brooks is the captain in this photo. This is a pick up crew as listed on the bottom of the Brooks crew page. Brooks is the captain at this point and Albert Mikkelsen (even though a pilot with his own crew) was probably on a check out mission with Brooks when this photo was taken. Pilots usually flew at least one mission with an experienced crew before leading his crew into battle. Detailed Information (100th Photo Archives)
