(1) "The PARD aircraft just happened to be conveniently available when they decided to take the picture"
(2) "Eilers - This man was probably a radar operator who flew with the crew on approximately two missions at the end of their missions" (see mission list below)
(3) In an undated letter from Harry Cruver to Joe Urice: "This [unknown] is probably 1st Lt. [M.] Eilers.
(4)"Also see Cruver's blackboard picture of a 351st crew availability list that shows Eilers as BTG. That is the same way Wofford's radar man was shown on the list that day."
(5) Eilers identified as A. J. Eilers by Michael Faley 4 Apr 2006.
