The 307th Bombardment Group (HV) Association, Inc., The Long Rangers


307th Bomb Group B-24
This web site has been setup to honor all the men of the 307th Bombardment Group (and 307th Bomb Wing from Korea) for their valiant service to their country during World War II from April 1942 to January 1946. The 307th Bomb Group (H) completed 625 Missions in the Pacific Theater, participated in 11 Campaigns and received 2 Distinguished Unit Citations.

307th Bomb Group B-24

The 307th Bomb Group was part of the 13th Air Force and consisted of the 370th, 371st, 372nd, and 424th Squadrons. By 1944 the group became known as the "The Long Rangers" due to their multiple, record-setting distances flown for their combat missions which included Wake, Truk, Yap, Palau, Balikpapan, Borneo (the Ploesti raid of the Pacific war—the unescorted mission against vital oil refineries at Balikpapan, Borneo) and the Phillipines.

Many of the missions were over 17 hour unescorted round-trips over open water with no landmarks. This site has been created to preserve and document the history of the 307th Bomb Group.
