    Hello everyone ive just joined what looks to be a fantastic WW2 aviation forum here! So i would like to say hello to everyone and start off by asking if anyone knows any information at all on the P38 Lightning of 7th Photo Recce Group based at Mount Farm in England and piloted by Jack Tuggle Jameson that crashed on 31st December 1944 killing the pilot. I have a propeller blade from this crash recovered by a member of the Severnside Aviation Society back in the 1980's. I just bought it yesterday evening as it has been in this chaps shed for last 20 years! I bought it for £100! Anyway, cheers everyone and best regards.

    Welcome to the forum, and good catch getting the prop blade! I don't think I have any info on the aircraft or pilot involved, but probably have some colour pics of the P38s at Mount Farm, if you're interested.

    Welcome Tim. I did a quick search in this site...8th Air Force Fighter Group - Littlefriends.co.uk and couldn't find A jack Jameson KIA or any aircraft lost that day with the 7th. It's a great site and you might have better luck doing a more extensive search there. Good luck.

    I think i may have the date wrong which is why things dont tally??? The owner of the prop was sure it was 31st Dec 44 but he might be wrong so will have to do some proper research and check with the archives in the USA. Cheers loads though. Tim.

    A bit later than intended, but here are the pics of P-38s at Mount Farm, scanned from Roger Freeman's 'Mighty Eighth in Colour'.
