I'm a 43 year old Brit. who lives close to Bovingdon airfield Hertfordshire, England. I would love to hear from any WW2 flyers who flew from Bov. and /or have memories of the local area. Thanks for all you did

My grandfather Edgar Harrell was the belly gunner on "Hey Daddy" in the 401st bomb squadron. The B-17 was lost April 8, 1945. If anyone has any information on the plane or her crew, please e-mail me. Thanks!!!

I visited your site to download some pictures of B-17's to use as backgrounds for my computer. I think they're a beautiful plane and I've admired them since youth. It's sad to think of all the fine men who flew in them and didn't come home. I once had the privilege to work for a Canadian gentleman who flew in Lancasters over Europe in WW 2. I have a lot of respect for all of you who went and fought. You are all heroes in my eyes.

Interesting Comments - over the holidays, we were looking at old pictures and I was particularly struck by my uncle, Thomas Clinton Butler, who was in either the 322nd or the 323rd. He was KIA'd in the January 11, 1944 raid over Oschersleben. As I understand, he was able to parachute out, but was shot and killed while coming down. Clinton was a very handsome young man and was nicknamed "Rhett" due to his resemblance to Rhett Butler of "Gone With The Wind".I'd be interested in hearing from anyone that might have any more information about my uncle. Happy New Year..
