Regarding your email to B-26 Guestbook on March 24 concerning B-26 "Ruthless"; I was the tail gunner when your grandfather was the bombardier. I have pictures and information that you will be interested in. If you would like to contact me directly please do so at:
|Unknown Martin B-26A, February 3, 1942, Trinity Centre, California. Flying in poor weather at a time unknown B-26A crashed into Trinity Alps northwest of Trinity Centre, California, killing all 6 crew. No other information available about this incident at this time. Please contact us with the names of the crew members.|
|Touching base, I'm all fine and dandy! And this 98-year-old still moving
around, driving, walking. The only problem: Right now, damnit, I couldn't
climb into a B26 via usual cockpit slide door opening in the floor--as we used
to do. Long gone are those days.
Very nostalgic for me to go thru the excellent collection of B26 guys listed on the site. Doubt very many too active...or even still with us.
An Air Force salute to B26.com for the tremendous job you've been doing all these years. Very rare to see a site with all those names, stories, affiliations etc, along with so many personal messages.
Remember from the early 1940s: "Keep'em flying!"
