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.

2nd Lt Stanley Thomas Lawrence Major. 
On June 25, 1944 2nd Lt Kenneth Houghton was pilot of this crew. Lt.Houghton had arrived at the 100 BG on 9/3/44 as CP on the Andrew Gorski crew and became pilot of Lt Major's crew on 14 June 44 after Lt Major was assigned to Squadron Operations. The rest of the above crew (except for Sgt.John Nelson) had all reached the 100th Gp on 7/4/44 as members of the Stanley T.Major crew. Sgt. Nelson was assigned to the 390th Bomb Gp and no doubt was a last minute replacement for this one mission. On 25 June 44 this crew was flying  A/C #42 97859 "Any Gum Chum" . 

Warren G. Moore passed away on 5/1/1991. He was a TG with the 418th Sqdn.. He was with 2nd Lt Kenneth Houghton crew assigned to A/C "Any Gum Chum". Shot down 6/25/1944 and was a POW. Please add him to your Taps. I'm his son Warren G. Moore Jr.

418th Sqdn. This crew,as above,Joined the 100th Group on 9/3/44.

Letter from Ray Miller (April 1984)  We had not been a part of the group very long until Andy Gorski was 
moved into squadron ops. Burt Fox had been a bombardier lnstructor and had gone through phase training 
twice. He was a natural for lead crew and insisted that I be his navigator as we were a "team". Gorski did 
not go to Pathfinders but did get some Command pilot time (he got a flak wound in the leg while doing so). 
Burt & I teamed up with Austin Dunlap and completed our tour as , PFF crew. Kenneth Houghton got a crew of 
his own (that of Lt Stanley Major) and was shot down but walked out. It was in June 1944 and he has a good story 
about Gen.Patton and his staff. I do not know the fate of the enlisted men of our original crew.

Hello Sir,
  My name is Jean Pierre, I live in the city of Chartres in France.
  I write a book about the crash and aerial combat in my area during the Second World War.
The 25 juin1944 the B17 42-97859, flown by Lt Kenneth Houghton crashed near the village of La Ferte Vidame (Les Ressuintes).
  This village is located 30 kilometers from Chartres, and the story of this crew will be in my book.
  I found your site, a photograph of the crew.
Will it be possible to obtain authorization to use this photo?
I enclose the address of our website:
http://forcedlanding.pagesperso-orange.fr/index.htm
  Thank you for your help.
  Cordially
  Jean Pierre
