    Yes, I was there, and a wonderful time was had by all.

    Although the association only holds full reunions every two years, to comemorate the 70th anniversary of the 401st's activation in 1943 there will be a "mini-reunion" next year, to be held in Dayton.

    Very nice photograph there Paul, enough to make up two full crews, with an extra ( Observer) going along for the ride.

    Bomber, We'd love to have you visit here in Dayton, but it's the National Museum of the Air Force that's nearby. The 8th's museum is in Savannah, Georgia - about 700 miles south of here!

    Will do Tom,

    It's pencilled in for the first weekend in August at the moment, and will be combined with the guys building Champaign Lady in 401st colours at Urbana.

    Dayton and Savannah are about equidistant from Washington and will prob cost you about $300 (I don't what that is in GBP) roundtrip airfare. If you drive, count on 10 hours or so each way. The National Museum certainly has a lot more a/c and all periods of aviation while Savannah focuses solely on the Mighty Eighth - awesome in its own right. If you came in summer, I'd go to Savannah as the nearby beaches are spectacular and the old town's setting is unique (in America anyways) and charming.
