Great collection. Do you still have the Sweet Seventeen jacket? I loved that jacket!bombs away said:Hi guys,
Thank you for the kind words.
i know some guys here who have amazing collections, much more than mine, but keep them secret...
A few items have left the collection and others have come in.
I'm more collecting USAAF groupings and identified items (uniforms, documents, photo albums...), that are spectacular than A-2s but my interest is more in the airmen stories than in anonymous equipment.
I take the opportunity to ask for a little help :
I'm working on an article about the 449th Bomb Group. I'm looking for scans of wartime pictures (nose art, crews, b-24s,...) I could use to illustrate the article. I'm looking for personal and original pics as I'm trying to keep off copyrights.
Fold3 pics are free but very poor about this particular unit.
Identified items would be very helpful too.

Hello Jeff,TankBuster said:Hey Tim,
I will do some digging and see if I have anything photo related to the 449th BG. I think I have a group of items to a guy that served with them.
We've been online at the same time.TankBuster said:Hey Tim,
Great to hear from you. I am looking forward to your article and the upcoming book you mentioned.
I will have some time this weekend to check and see if I have anything of interest. I will email you anything I find!
