    I am looking for any information I can find on my wife's grandfather's plane. He was a copilot on a B-24 "Joe Cox" I believe was the name of the plane. I have been to the Ken's Men website which focus' on the 43rd BG, and found a photo of him, but I am looking for info on the plane. Would really like to find a photo of it. Bought a 1/48 model for wife's cousin for Christmas, and would really like to be able to show him his grandfather's airplane.
    Thanks,
    Steve

    Hello. My grandfather is 2nd Lt. James F. Clark. He dies many years ago and unfortunately I do not have much info. I do however have many photos. What info do you have? My grandfather was a pilot and flew a plane with cameras in the bomb bays which I have photos of as well. The pyramids in Egypt and many other beautiful imiages.
