Resources


In General

At present, the resources include color photos, diaries and sumaries of flights logs.

Color Photos

Color photos were a rare find in WWII.  Fortunately, 1/Lt Percy U. Tucker (A/C, "Lady Annabelle", 40th Squadron) brought a color camera with him to Tinian and took several color pictures.  His daughter Terry Tucker Rhodes has been kind enough to copy and share them with us.

The Index also contains links to other color pictures of people, places and planes.
