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.

350th Sqdn..Crew, as above, joined the 100th on 26 May 44

His A-2 Jacket is painted "Innocent Bystander"  A/C ????

Lt Austin Dunlap was transferred to Lead Crew (pathfinders) at 95th BG (Horham) after the June 24, 1944 mission.  He was replaced on the crew by Lt Tiahrt.   Lt Cummings was transferred home after ditching in channel with another crew.
Lt Cummings was replaced with Lt Braithwaite (July 7, 1944) who came from the Lt Tiahrt Crew.  Lt Braithwaite and Lt. Tiahrt flew with this crew from July 7, 1944 until August 14, 1944.  After that, Lt Goodwin became Pilot.  No information on who became new Bomb. (as related to mpf by Butch Goodwin and Max Barasch) 

To Whom It May Concern,
I am the daughter of Lt. Maxim Barasch of the 100th Bomb Group. I came across your site and know that if my father could know that I'm trying to submit a photo to the site...he would smile...For most of his life, he spoke about his buddies. You could always see in his face what these guys meant to him.
If you could somehow make this possible, I would deeply appreciate it.
Fondly,
Robin Barasch Permut  SRP@permlaw.com

Lt. Goodwin flew 21 missions as a co-pilot and 13 as first pilot. His mission log is filled with rough misions, noteable the three trips to Meresburg, one of which was recalled, and the 26 Nov 44 Hamm misison. There are several other trips to the Rhur area ("Happy Valley"). These targets were well protected by Flak batteries and were often contested by the Luftwaffe.
