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.

349TH SQDN.. CREW JOINED THE 100TH ON 26 MAY 1944. TRAPNELL LATER HAD HIS OWN CREW. 10 SEP 44 THIS CREW WITH ROSENTHAL AS COMMAND PILOT CRASHED LANDED IN FRANCE..jb
AFTER 9 MISSIONS THIS CREW ASSIGNED TO LEAD CREW TRAINING.  2ND LT JOSEPH TRAPNELL WAS ASSIGNED HIS OWN CREW AND WE LOST TWO GUNNERS (SGT HANSER AND SGT JONES) TO MAKE ROOM FOR A FORMATION OFFICER AND A RADAR OPERATOR (MICKEY).  SGT PALMER AND SGT HARTOS BECAME WAIST GUNNERS ON THE LEAD CREW.   

"AS A PATHFINDER (PFF) CREW, WE WERE STATIONED AT HORHAM (HOME OF THE 95TH BG AND 13TH COMBAT WING HQ).  HORHAM WAS THE ONLY BASE EQUIPPED TO SERVICE THE RADAR EQUIPMENT IN THE 13TH CBW.  ON A MISSION DAY, WE WOULD HAVE TO GET UP EARLY, FLY OVER TO THORPE ABBOTTS, FLY THE MISSION, GO THROUGH DEBRIEFING AND THEN FLY BACK TO HORHAM. THIS MADE FOR A LONG DAY AND WE WERE NOW SEPERATED FROM OUR BUDDIES IN THE 349TH, THIS DID NOT MAKE US HAPPY."  (LOUIS QUIJADA FROM HIS BOOK "RED WHITE AND BLUE PARACHUTES")
