COMMENTS:
I recently located an original acrylic paintng named "Coming In' based on photos by William Whiteside. According to the providence attached Mr. Whiteside flew 37 missions as Tail gunner. The picture is of two PBJ's # 5 and # 11 circling Emirau Island November 1944. The airstrips and bivouac areas are visible. It continues to describe about how both planes #5 crashed in a storm and #11 failed to return from a mission in Mindano. Is there any further providance or interest in this? Claims to be 1 of 50 or 450. Hard to tell. Thanks WT

Hello,

I am interested in the loss of a PBJ-1D of VMB-611 at Turtle Bay. Your site describes it, and says it was the aircraft Buno 35152 on 26 October 1944). The VMB-611 War Diary for October 1944 shows this loss on 24 October 1944 and says the Buno was 35197, 35152 being wrecked two days earlier.

Can you confirm which source is correct ? I will also be interested by a full crew list.

Thanks in advance

My step father was John F Adinolfi, TSgt and I think this was his Marine squadron. He had a Japanese flag from the war but you know, he would never speak about his work in WWII. I asked and he just would not talk about it. He later took his mother's name which is Martini and is buried in Arlington National Cemetery with my Mother alongside. He was award a Purple Heart but I know nothing about his service years.
