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.

I'm sorry if you keep recieving this email, but I'm not sure if 
it's working. I'm having problems with my server. Anyway I have 
located Cpl. Harold B Marck (BTG) who actually flew with my 
father. He is in North Arlington, NJ. He said he wouldn't mind 
talking to youif you would like to call him. He might be able to 
fill some holes for you. He said the name of their plane was 
"Bit, O, Heaven" and their call # was LN-V 505. I don't know near as 
much about these planes as you do so if you could please follow up 
with any info you might get it would be most appreciated. Thanks 
again and I'll re-send the pictures when I get my email working. 
P.S.I am still trying to locate some more crew members, I'll keep 
you posted. God Bless! J. Robert Marsh 

forgot to give you Harold B. Marcks' ph. #, I'm so sorry... It's 201-998-8706. Please let me know what you find out. Thanks again, Robert.
 
Thanks again.
