Dear All at the Fightin' 91st ---

2LT Jesse Carnes here. I just wanted to say, I REALLY appreciate you guys at the 91st BGMA and at this nice web site.
Flaps up!! =)

PS : Today at work, I am going to show a co-worker what the USAAF officers wore during WWII, when it came to class-A's ... pinks-and-greens, that is to say. What a fabulous uniform! I am just glad that I found a company who makes these uniforms.
At any rate, Keep 'em Flyin' at the 91st!! --- 2LT Jesse Carnes

I am looking for information on a B17 pilot Art Metzger who I think was stationed at Bassingbourn probably in 1943. He was in the RAF for a while before the USAAF came to the UK. He was a friend of my dad who flew Lancaster bombers from Fiskerton then. I am not sure if it was the 91st he was in, but any help information would be useful. My dad has some good stories to tell about this friendship.

Hi Vernon Woods!
Finally back in touch. In good shape back in New Jersey. Saw your comments on the internet, hope you are well. I would like to hear from you. And I'll write you back. My mailing address is
3 Montgomery Ave., Montville, NJ 07045. My comment is the name of the plane was the Duke of Paduca. The plane we were shot down in was the Black Swan. This is in reference to Mendelsohn's Crew. I'm the cute skinny one on the far left, back row. Totally amazed by your web site. GREAT!!!

This visit was because my brother-in-law "Oscar Richard of Baton Rouge" - he was a navagator an was shot down. He spent 18 months in a prison camp. I believe he called Lauth One or something close to that name.

Looking for the name of the pilot who flew General "Ike" with co-pilot Lewis B. Ellis. From the 401st SQ of the 9th Bomb Group (Heavy). Pilot's nickname was "Bumpy", co-pilots nicname "Mr. Serene".

It's possible the pilot could be a very distant relative. His cousin may have been my Grandmother. I am active duty Air Force (enlisted)stationed in Germany. Any information is greatly appreciated.
