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.

 Dear Mike,

    I appreciate your efforts.  Here is some more information from me.
    I was a spare gunner transferred from the 388th bomb group to the
    100th bomb group in late 1944.  I flew my first mission with the 100th
    bomb group in early January 1945 over Cologne, Germany.  I came to
    the 100th bomb group with four other volunteers from the 388th.  Among
    these four was Tech/Sgt Piepgras who was lost over Hamburg (actually lost over Buchen)
    Germany.  I remember the following crews - Calder's crew, Kallsarand's crew,
    Baldwin's crew ( they were lost over the channel on April 3,  1945).  I was a 
    friend of tech/sgt Turner who was killed over Brunswick, Germany (believe this to be
    Cecil Baker from Thrasher Crew).  He was a tailgunner.  The last colonel of the group I remember was Sutterlin.
    I flew the following missions to cities - Cologne, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Munich,
    Polenz (which was located in the far western German or Poland area) plus
    other missions.  Our last operations officer was a captain or Major Wooten.
    I remember when Robert Rosenthal was CO of the 418th and he had a broken
    arm when he flew a shuttle mission to the far western front.
    I will send photos that I have and information via mail.  What 
    is a good address to send these to?  

    Again, Mike, I can't thank you enough for all your assistance.  This means a lot
    to me.

    Sincerely,
    Joe

Dear Friends,
My name is Joe Perry and I was a tech/sgt. I don't recall my squadron but recall that my Lt. Colonel was Robert Rosenthal and remember Captain Evans. Would love to hear from anyone out there. I do recall, quite vividly, that I flew 26 missions as a gunner….Joe Perry
