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.

This quotes are straight out of the paper and subject to editing. A point ofinterest is that Pete Cook and Bob Morton asked Cowboy for permission to trysome bullet proof glass on the side windows. Cowboy turned them down sinceall of the glass area could not be protected and he felt the weight additionwould be prohibitive. His instructions were not followed and Morton and Cookinstalled the protective glass anyway - on the next mission enemy fire didstrike the side window by Cowboy and failed to injury him. Little more wassaid about the glass according to Cowboy. Pete never joined the associationbut always loved the 100th and maintained a close relationship with Cowboyand Morton....
