1. The AAF forum will close permanently on December 1, 2017. I no longer have the time to manage a project like this, obviously, or give it the attention that it deserves. I still think fondly of the early days in 1998 when this all got started. A small, but eager group of tech savvy 1st and 2nd generation descendants made great friends with the last of the WWII veterans thru the newfangled internet. They're all gone now. It's time for me to turn the page. Thanks for being along for part of the ride. I'm sorry it got so bumpy in the end.

    Several of these can be found on our website: www.307bg.net
    Also I would enter "307" and each of the 4 squadron numbers(370,371,372,424) into http://www.b24bestweb.com/ as there are several listings of aircraft. Enter each number separately for five distinct searches.

    There are 2 tabs at the bottom of the excel spreadsheet. AC serials are in numeric order and you can also scan for nose art names. I'm at work and cannot assist further until after 6pm EST. I'll check in with you then

    Thanks, Jim. I found a couple & have updated my original list above.
    Note: There are two versions of THUMPER to straighten out: "V2" (42-40073) & V5 (still unknown). REF: http://www.b24bestweb.com/Pics-T-THR-THUM.htm

    Thanks for the sub-forum. Is there a 307th BG reunion scheduled in the future?

    Jim, I just emailed you about my cousin SSGT Farnam
