on the Bomb Squadron Number will take you to Crew Lists for that unit.
Lists are alphabetical by Aircraft Commander
MOS Numbers Table Below
This table covers most of those
used on B-29s during 1944 and 1945
These partial crew lists for each of the Bomb Squadrons have been created using:
Missing Air Crew Reports ( MACR )
Narrative History ( Reels B0662 and B0663 )
page for each Bomb Squadron is searchable using the FIND feature
Searching is limited to one Bomb Squadron at a time.
While most crews remained within the same Squadron, some of the Aircraft Commanders did not.
They were transferred to another Squadron, to 497th Group Headquarters, or to 73rd Wing Headquarters
Mission Reports with each crew member listed are extremely difficult to find.
Were it not for Jim, Carl, Mark, and Roy, these pages could not have been created.
Details on Losses and Group Burials can be found in the menu at the top of this page
