Re: B-24G, B-24H

Just a correction on MACR 1506. The plane was 41-28723, a B-24H, 459th BG, 759th BS, lost on a flight to Waller Field (Trinidad) from Morrison Field (Florida).
(Fixed, thanks Stig).

The crew deaths are given as KNB on 14 January, 1944.

Fold3 has combined MACR 1505 and 1506 together. The National Archives has listed MACR 1505 as 1506. (All somewhat confusing.)

MACR 1505 was for a B-24D, 42-40910 lost in Alaska during some cold weather tests on 21 December, 1943.

Re: B-24G, B-24H

PB4Y-1 are B-24D models taken from USAAF production lines. The PB4Y-2 is not equivalent to any B-24 model; it was lengthened and had a single tail.

There are no MACRs for B-24G or H models in the CBI (10th and 14th Air Forces).

Enjoy!

Frank.

You mean the other way around. Morrison Field was in Florida and Waller Field in Trinidad....

Cheers

Re: B-24G, B-24H

In fact about half the Navy PB4Y-1s were ex-B-24Ds; the others were a mix of J,L and M models, but no G or H.
