Re: Chuck Older 23rd Fighter Group

At least in Europe, the Eighth and Ninth Air Forces did keep lists of pilots/aircraft on missions. I have seen many in unit records and at NARA II although admittedly, not every group/squadron record has been found. One of the outstanding examples is the 354th Fighter Group of the Ninth Air Force, where all three squadrons listed the pilot and assigned aircraft for each mission throughout the war. For an Eighth Air Force example, the 359th Fighter Squadron of the 356th Fighter Group had the pilot, aircraft and serial number listed. I have no idea on other theaters where the AAF operated.
