Re: 451st BG/726BS - MACR 7211

Hello Gabor and ScottM,

Many thanks for your combined hard work .
The Schiffer book " The 451st Bomb Group in WW2 a pictorial history" has on page 137 that the a/c had 17 hours on the airframe when received at Fairmont Field, Nebraska and 650 hours when the original crew finished their combat tour.
Can it be discovered who the "original Taylor crew " were and when the "possibly" Beaucond crew took her over ? I.e. when the Taylor crew finished their tour.

As it stands "Old Taylor" looks a strong favourite.
But I do wonder about 42-78478 salvaged a couple of days later ?

Thanks again
