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.

 CARGO FOR MARGO 338459 on Dec. 24, 1944. Pilot is Lt. John Morin, with John A. Clark flying as replacement CP. (100th Photo Archives) 

PFF Terrible Termite (4) Dec 24, 1944 . The back of this picture said it was 24 December 1944, when the weather cleared during the battle of the bulge. Orders were for a maximum effort, and my dad who was the group bombardier at the time said that the group staff formed a crew and flew lead. Back of the picture says it was taken by a LT Adair who was on their wing. The target was Bibblis airfield and fuel storage.
