Mr. Jason Unwin, Secretary of the Pueblo Weisbrod and International B-24 Memorial Museums in Pueblo, Colorado, is researching the loss of B-24 Liberator bombers during WWII. He is seeking any information regarding aircraft lost in training accidents as well as those due to combat. This information will be used to obtain accident reports from the Air Force Historical Research Agency and Missing Aircrew Reports from the National Archives.
Mrs. Joye M. Kading of the Veterans Memorial Museum at the former Casper Army Air Force Base (Casper, Wyoming), is looking for artifacts of the members of the 380th Bomb Group Association for her museum. Many of us went through Casper for Combat Crew Phase Training.
