    What info are you looking for? They were part of the 7th AF, flying B-24s from a variety of locations during the war.

    A little history of the 11th Bomb Wing can be found here:

    http://www.7bwb-36assn.org/11hist.html

    They started with B-17s and transitioned to B-24s while at Hickam Field in Hawaii around April of 1943. Prior to that, they were "farmed out" to the 13th AF and were flying B-17s mostly from New Hebrides. The history on the web page is pretty comprehensive. They also flew B-36s after the war.

    Let me know if you need more info.
