I am the author of “ALAE SUPRA CANALEM: Wings Over the Canal – The Sixth Air Force and Antilles Air Command” (Turner, 1995) and am presently working on a definitive book on the Douglas B-18 series, including the wartime B-18B and B-18C anti-submarine conversions.
I am seeking contact with anyone who crewed on B-18s at any time, whether in bombardier school, twin-engine conversion, or operationally.

Dear Fellow A/Cs:
Here’s to all of you stalwart, courageous, brave, daring, intrepid, indomitable, and handsome Aviation Cadets:
After surfing through the website, I was amazed to find I’m about the oldest living Aviation Cadet (with about two exceptions). So to the listing above I should also add *young.* Here are my stats:
Class 44-B Stuttgart, Arkansas. Began Miami Beach, FL; Fenn College for CTD Cleveland, OH; Nashville, TN for Classification; Maxwell Field, AL for Pre-flight; Lafayette, LA for Primary; Malden, MO for Basic; Stuttgart, AR for Twin-engine Advanced; Westover Field, MA for Transition; Chatham Field, GA for B-24 Training. Flew out of Manduria, Italy, 15th AF, 450th BG, 723 SQ (The Cottontails). Survived 3 crash landings and 23 missions. Back to the States: Smoky Hill AAB, KN. Discharged November 1945.
Please prove me wrong, you old timers.

As the President of a National Military association (the Air Force Navigators Observers Association http://www.afnoa.org ) I recommend all that can, go to Aviation Cadet World. Plan on spending a full day, or two easy days because there are famous aircraft to get into. It is the only place in the world where one can get into a F-105 F/G Wild Weasel. And for us Navigators, the only place where one can get in to a T-29 Nav-station! This place is out standing.
