A 307th Bombardment Group (H) Navigator
working hard to find a small island during a B-24 raid. 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.
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

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.
