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.

I have befriended frederick "buzz" burkhardt. He was a tailgunner in the 100th bomber group assigned to the 349th.he was in oliver hildebrand`s crew.he was made homeless by katrina and has been in a nursing home since that time.all of his possessions were looted including his medals and wings.i am trying to see which of these items I could have reproduced.i am looking for a100th bomber group patch,a 349th patch,his tailgunner wings,a picture of buzz from his service days and any medals he earned. I would gladly pay any costs associated with this. We are trying to put this together for veteran`s day.you can contact me by email or at 504 220 2039.
