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.

350th Sqdn.    From "THEY NEVER HAD IT SO GOOD'" by Jack W Sheridan

p.21   "Among the crews that had left  Sioux City to put in the extra time at the 
dispersed bases was one of the original crews that had come to ue at 
Wendover. It was Lt.Paul Capaccio's crew with Lt.Jacob Madsen,and 
Flight Officer Latimer Stewert.They had gone to Casper,Wyoming. On 
the same day we got to Kearney they received orders to fly with a 
skeleton crew to Kansas. Capaccio and Madsen had the controls with 
Stewert and two of their enlisted men with them,Staff Sergeants 
Thaddeus Donlavage and Frank Culver. No one ever quite knew what 
happened. Somehow,as the plane neared Bogue, Kansas,something 
nappened. The big Fort arced out of the flat skies to bury itself in the 
middle of a corn field. A11 five were killed outright."


Hello, 

I recently came across some old family photos and was posting them on my facebook page for my cousins when I learned about your website from my father. He said I could Google my uncle's name and learn how he died. I started looking around for more information and that's when I saw you were looking for photos and I thought I'd share this one, now that I had a digital copy. 

Paul M Capaccio was my great grandfather's (my father's grandfather) nephew. My maiden name is Capaccio :) 



Here's what was written on the back: 



Have a great day!
