    Couldn't understand the significance of this airplane and why all these people would pose by it. Then I found the newspaper clipping in the next photo

    Re: Had every intention to detect (MORE PICS)

    Money really isn't involved here although I'm sure some would pay to get some of this stuff. I'm more into preserving what there is. My hands are the wrong place but I will find a caretaker. At present, my most inportant task is to find a home for his burial flag. It belongs somewhere where it can receive it's full honor and, right now, that's where it is until I find a more fitting place. I have 4 or 5 more clear-as-a-bell, 8 x 10 photos of other aircrews by their planes. Those pics have the tail numbers on them. I'm assuming they are B24D's and I'm trying to locate crew members or family.

    Thanks again for the replies. dg39, I have someone scanning some aircraft post cards and saving them to disc. When I get them, I'll email you.

    Re: Had every intention to detect (MORE PICS)

    Wow!! This is all very interesting. I live in the Dayton, Ohio area and we have the National Museum of the United States Air Force here. I would think they would be very interested in a lot of the things about airplanes and the Pearl Harbour stuff. They have exhibits for every era of flight beginning with the Wright Brothers, WWI, WWII, etc. They have personal exhibits of People who flew, too. Just a thought.

    Look forward to more pics.

    Re: Had every intention to detect (MORE PICS)

    Cheryl, did you notice Cecelia Earhart was from Toledo, Ohio? So was this flyer and he is in the photo with Cecelia and her plane. Most of the other pics are basically the same subject matter. I'm trying to find someone in town that can make prints from the negatives I have. There are also a bunch of slides, most of them in color, that I have to go through. Some look meaningless but that's what I thought about Cecelia's plane in flight. It just looked like a plane pic until I saw the picture of her standing next to it in the newspaper clipping. Then it turned out to be the same plane in the group photo.

    Bottom line here is the $80 storage fee was up the day I went here. The guy that was paying the storage bill wasn't going to pay it anymore and was going to take it all to the dump as he had to get back to Arizona and didn't have time to mess with it........sheeeeesh!!!!
