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.

This is to inform you of an error in the TAPS section of your website.  I've just discovered that my uncle, Donald W. Case, a former member of the crew of Warren Marmorine in the 349th Sqdn. Of the 100th Bomb Group, is listed as deceased on 5/16/72.  In fact, Donald W. Case is alive and very alert.  He celebrated his 90th birthday on December 29, 2006.

Please correct the information on your website as soon as possible.

For confirmation you can contact my uncle here:

 MISSION: RUHLAND                                   MACR #8819,Micro-fiche 3237
 
  1st Lt Orville C.Everitt       P        KIA

A statement made 2/8/45 by Sgt.Kenney is as follows:  "We were flying a mission
to Ruhland,Germany in Sept.1944.At about 12:10 English time we were hit by F.W.
190s.Due to oxygen system which was shot out and also serious lung wounds,I was
unconsclous and don't remember how I got out.  I have no knowledge of what happ-
ened at all except hearsay.  I heard in Germany from a fellow flyer that the ship
blew up.Then when I got to France I saw the Navigator Lt.Soden. He said he saw a
ship explode after he bailed out, but he couldn't tell if it was ours."

Lt.Manniello received injuries to the skull and had no memory of any events occur-
ring betwean 5 and 16 Sept.  However, he said as follows in August 1945:   "The
Toggalier,Minton, Edward, Sgt.,occupied the other bed in my room (in Ger. Hosp,)
and gave me the following information.
      1.The pilot, Everitt,Orville C.  was killed in the plane but everyone else
        bailed out.
      2. We were strafed while floating earthward.
      3. We were attacked by civilians at railroad station in Kemotan, Sudeten-
         land,Germany.
      4. Minton had no knowledge of fate of other members of our crew.  (Minton
         was later officially reported by the German Govt. to have died as a
         result of a fractured spine."
