Hi! First off, thanks for a really terrific web sight! I have really enjoyed my visit.
Next, I would really like any information that I could get on a plane from the 401st called Command Performance 2. The bombardier was Chuck Strode. I had the pleasure of chatting with Mr. Strode over 20 years ago in Brighton, Colorado, but as I have moved several times, I have lost track of him. Of particular intrest to me are the serial number (the last 3 numbers of which added up to 13) and the letter designator and large letters that were painted on the side of the plane, near the waist guns. I would like to build a model of this plane, and want it to be as accurate as possible. Any pictures that could be emailed to me or otherwise copied, would be terrific! Thanks in advance for any help.

My father (Thomas F. Flemming) was a pilot with the 323rd. He has passed on to me color pictures of the planes; "Nine-0-Nine", "High-ho-Silver" and "Margie". Email me if you are interested in them, I can send them via email". There is even a color picture with him and some of his freinds in front of the officers mess.

I was a member of the 91SMW, your sons if you will. Did you ever consider a post WW2 history of the 91st. We Cold War kids racked up a pretty distinguished addendum to what you did. We retired the Riverside Trophy for best in the 15th AF, won the Omaha, LeMay, Blanchard, and a whole bunch more. In the late 70's the 91st was named best wing in the USAF, the fighter guys were really pissed. We have more AF Distinguished Unit awards than I can remember. We knew we had a proud history and tried to add to it.

I would want to thank Bill Howard, nephew of C.Pinning who was the pilot of Chief Sly lll. After months of his efforts, Bill finally located me who is the brother of S/Sgt Joe Bielecki who was KIA on October 9, 1943. His plane was shot down over Anklam, Germany. Bill gave me the information in regards to your website. I was thrilled to locate my brother's picture with the crew on your website. My brother's body was never found. But after fifty-seven (57) years your website finally brought a closure to my brother's death.

I would like to join the 91st Bomb Group as an associate member.

Great Web Site!
This is of particular interest to me since my father, Thomas Flemming Sr. flew 35 missions with the 323rd as a pilot/co-pilot.
Keep up the good work!

I am looking for information on my late uncle, LT. Modesto "Babe" Olivo. I believe that he served with the 322nd Bomber Squadron in an aircraft called "My Baby Two" and was shot down on Nov 2, 1944. Any replies would be gratefully accepted.
