514th FS 406th FG Photos


Recommended Posts

Here are two photos from the 406th fighter group. Top photo includes a Capt. Jones, Lt Saux, and Lt. McClean. I do not know who which one was nicknamed "Woody".

 

Bottom pic shows nose art for Bloom's Tomb which is noted in Beck's book "Fighter Pilot. Ground crew includes Sgt Pendleton, S/Sgt. Orr, and Cpl. Haumann.

Hi! I am producing an educational interactive timeline of the Strategic Bombing Campaign for the American Battle Monuments Commission. We wish to incorporate the photographs at the top of the thread of Capt. Jones, Lt Saux, and Lt. McClean and Sgt Pendleton, S/Sgt. Orr, and Cpl. Haumann in the interactive as visual accompaniment to the history of the 406th Fighter Group. Please email me at sarah@doggreenproductions.com so we can discuss licensing and credit. Thanks!
