The documents and information on this page was supplied as a cooperative effort between Dan B. Odenweller (Missing Air Crew Project & 307 Bomb Group Researcher), and 307th historian, Jim McCabe. Any questions, suggestions or corrections may be directed to: Jim McCabe – Historian@307BG.net

The 307th Bombardment Group (Heavy), composed of four squadrons (370th, 371st, 372nd, and 424th), flew B24’s during their tour of duty in the Southwest Pacific with the 13th Army Air Force.

The table, intended to be an accounting of all the aircraft assigned to the 307th BG(H), was initially prepared from reports of lost aircraft, and later incorporated information from other files and records. At this time, it appears that the Group received its’ initial allotment of aircraft from the B24 “41-xxxxx” series. Subsequent aircraft came from the B24 “42-xxxxx” series and even later from the B24 “44-xxxxx” series.

Finding your way over hundreds of miles of open ocean was one of the most difficult problems of the Pacific which is noted for giving navigators more headaches per sector than any other area on the globe during WWII.
