The 307th Bomb Group was part of the 13th Air Force and
consisted of the 370th, 371st, 372nd, and 424th Squadrons.
The group became known as the "The Long Rangers" due to their multiple,
record-setting distance flown for their combat missions which included:
Wake, Rabaul, Truk, Yap, Palau, Balikpapan, Borneo, (the Ploesti of the

Many of the missions were over 17 hour
unescorted round-trips over vast expanses of the Pacific Ocean. This site has been created to preserve and document the
history of the 307th Bomb Group.
