A neighbor requested that I assist her in learning more about her father's war record. She (amazingly) had his entire military record, which included all his Individual Flight Records (AAF Form #5), which detailed his flights from 12/44 - 9/45 with the 319th. She provided what appears to be a pre-deployment pic (attached) of the crew (other docs in the file have the following crew members named, most of whom are on the photo):
2nd Lt Loren B. Stanley O677157 Pilot
2nd Lt Lyncy D Smith O515127 Copilot
Flt Officer William A Dubrowski T129654 Navigator (my neighbor's father)
2nd Lt George R. Berebitskiy O7883166
Cpl Samuel D Maltby 16085453
Cpl George S. Fridmore 14135616
Cpl Arthur E. Newell Jr 14065074
Cpl Lyle A Peterson 39341501
Cpl James A. Hickey 43025572
Cpl Kenneth E Engle 37538334
If anyone could help me ID the S/N of the A/C and additional pics, I'd greatly appreciate it. I am the genealogist for Project Recover, and assist the organization in identifying next of kin of recovered MIAs.
Inquire about crew members, aircraft, or any other subject here.

Crews were not assigned individual planes but were assigned planes for a mission. Have her check his flight records for 3 (sometimes 4) digits for each mission which would be the last three of the tail number.
