Hello,
I'm looking for a US claim list for 29. may 1944.

8 AF

4th FG (P-51)
20th FG (P-38)
55th FG (P-38)
78th FG (P-47)
353rd FG (P-47)
355th FG (P-51)
361st FG (P-51)
479th FG (P-38)

9th AF

367th FG (P-38)
474th FG (P-38)





I could find out, taht 361st FG claims 12 E/A destroyed, does s.o. have any further information? (who, location, time, report...)

Thank you Marco for you reply.

There are some combat reports in www (Murdy, Webb, Hopkins),

Is it possible to get the other ones from the 361 FG? Where?
