Aircraft Listing

We are attempting to create a comprehensive list of the planes, pilots and crew of the 475th FG. There will be additions and corrections made as we get new or updated info coming in. It must be remembered that crews flew aircraft as they were assigned to them. "Personal" airplanes were assigned on a "rank and seniority" basis as well as by aircraft availability. A pilot flew "his" plane if it was available that day. Also as pilots were rotated home, the replacement pilots were assigned to the vacated planes.
