380th Bomb Group Association

 NEWSLETTER #11 -- June  2002



As noted in the Introductory Letter to this issue of THE FLYING CIRCUS, we are well along with the initial manuscript for our Mission History for the 380th. We have decided to do the following in compiling it.

  1. Make a Summary Listing of the details for each mission with one line of data for each Squadron involved, along a 17-inch page.
  2. Present a map sketch of the mission track for each mission.
  3. Reference the text discussion of each mission covered in Glenn Horton's BEST IN THE SOUTHWEST.
  4. Provide maps and photos of the targets wherever possible.

We will bring the manuscript to Salt Lake City for your review as we did the aircraft in Dayton.

Barb is continuing to prepare the aircraft listings for showing on our website as her heavy work schedule permits. She hopes to have all the "D" models on the web by the end of June.

If you have any photos of the aircraft or the mission sites that you'd like to share, we would be happy to receive copies, either electronically (computer scans sent by email ) or by regular mail. You can send your submissions to:
