Recommended Posts

Serching for B-26 operations over italy i stumbled on this picture of B-26 that say its from Foggia

from what i could see B-26s units in Italy operated from Corsica, Sardinia and Tunisia in 43-44-45, i could not see any operated from Foggia complex airbases

what could be tail number #83 or #88, and serial numbermaybe 243237?

 

should be from 319th Bombardment Group, 440th Bombardment Squadron or 320th Bombardment Group, 441st Bombardment Squadron but numbers dont match, also i could not see any info that they were in Foggia bases

or maybe by checking B-26 serial numbers here http://www.joebaugher.com/usaf_serials/usafserials.html

#88 42-43276 B-26B-40-MA Marauder, but also not in Foggia and it says its 441st BS for that one, but from what i see they didnt have that high tail numbers

 

so im wodering is that picture maybe from Corsica or Sardinia airbase and not from Foggia

Thanks for the link for that book, it has good info and al at one place and all same info from web links.

No mention there also that any B-26 squadron was at Foggia at any point.

 

Reading now this https://www.39-45.org/videos/3945/CA073.pdf B-26 Marauder Units of the MTO, some nice pictures there also
