    My Uncle was a M/Sgt in Maintenance at Station AAF-590. Was this Duxford? If not where was this, does anyone know? I do know he worked on B-17, B-24, and P-47's and had 150 men under his supervision, I just wanted to know which airfield he was at and if anyone has info. it'll be you guys.......
    Thanks,
    Hollywood
