      Hello Eric,
      I'm planning on another P-61A in the near future and I would like to build the Wabash Cannonball IV. I have found several photos of this plane to include a walk around taken, I believe, near the end of the war. Do you have any photos I may be able to use for this project? Also, is there someone I can go to to get permission to post photos of this plane while I'm building it on this website?. It would be purely for educational purposes, no monetary gain, as I build this plane.

      regards,
      Bill

      Erich,

      I am looking for information on the Gruppenkommandeure of IV/JG3, Hptm. Hubert York-Weydenhammer. He replaced Major Moritz in Dec 5th 1944 and headed the IV/JG3 until he went MIA over Belgium on Dec 25th 1944. In a post on the Sturmbocks, you posted an account of him leading his gruppe on Dec 24th 1944 in an attack on the B17s of the 487th.

      Do you have any information on Hptm. York-Weydenhammer? I am trying to find photos of him and his plane. I have found lots of online photos of FW190 A8/R2 Sturmbocks of the IV/JG3 that have unknown pilots. I am hoping to identify him in one of these photos. Do you have any information or pictures of his plane's designation?

      Thank you for any help you can provide!

      I am seeking information from the 425th NFS. Specifically regarding my uncle 1st Lt Carl H Byars, a P61 pilot, who was killed Dec 27 1944. He was awarded the DFC sometime prior to his death and I would like to know the specifics of that. Any other information regarding his missions would also be great to know.

      Hi Erich; you sent me a private message on ww2f and I thank you for the response. Hope your father is OK. I cannot seem to respond on that website and so am trying you through this website. My uncle (Fred Sanderson 78 squaderon) was killed 27th/28th August 1943 over Nuerberg. Appreciate any more info. Well aware of his crew; but would like to know how he was killed and if it was a night fighter or Flak. Any details from German (or English) combat report really appreciated. My father (his younger brother) has always wondered what happened. Appreciate your help. Regards.

      "I'll be participating in my own Fathers memorial this upcoming weekend."

      My deepest sympathy and condolences mate. If there's anything I can do just ask. You are in my thoughts Erich.
