Good find, Alex.

On Jan. 31st two 460bg planes were lost, and MACR was not made.
One was from 762bs, and it was radar ship.
Other plane was 41-28805.

Plane 44-49712 has following data listed:
Block L-10-FO
Project 90947-R
Finish NM
Date assigned 11/29/1944
Disp CR

Is it possible to see from this data if this was radar ship?

A quick check of the Group history I have for the 460th shows that the Jan 20, 1945 mission lost one aircraft missing, and that a second ran out of gas and crashed ten miles from base. No crew casualties, but no other information. No pilot, no serial, no squadron number. When I get to the strategic volumes for MAW I will copy the records available at NARA II and hope to find more details. I will probably not get to the 1945 records during 2018.
Frank,
one more question, since I see you are doing nice research.
I am planning on doing research on allied bombing of Yugoslavia.
I have done most of the research on Escape and Evasion of 15AAF, and I am aware that some data are in 15AAF archive, and other in bomb group archives. Situation is similar for mission reports.
For test, I have ordered several rolls with mission reports from 15 AAF, and I have got mission reports from one bomb group. In bomb group archive there is lot of data, but not much of it is useful (ie formation of bombers, load lists etc).

Therefore I plan to obtain reels with 15 AAF reports only. There is also less of them, and it would be easier to obtain.
What do you think about this plan, and do you have some advice?
