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.

 "GLORY BOUND" 43-38523 EP-F crashed, 4 January 1945, at Thorpe Abbotts after a 3 1/2 hour training flight. Note: the aircraft is still burning and the ground crew is already to tow it away. Just four days earlier on 31 December 1944, the aircraft had suffered flak damage and returned safely. The 100th BG lost 12 aircraft on that mission. Photo courtesy of Jack O'Leary
