Hi, all. I have questions....

Daddy was a pilot in 390th Bomb Group, 568th Squadron, out of Framlingham with 23 missions in B-17G from 02/14/1945 to 04/14/1945. I have the print out of the missions, the planes' tail numbers/serial numbers, dates and targets, and I have found the names of most of them. I am wanting to get pictures of the planes he flew and can' t find them, and don't really know where to look. :rolleyes:Any ideas?

Thanks,

Kathy

Hi Kathy, and welcome to the forum. :)
Off the top of my head, the two best likely sources would be the USAF Museum photograph database, and the Imperial War Museum photo database.
As a suggestion, you might also leave a Private Message with Clave, a regular contributor here. Clave does graphic art images of WW2 aircraft, and may have some ideas as to sources you could research images from.

I hope this info helps, and wish you every success in your research Kathy.

Regards, Uyraell.
