    My father-in-law, Wilford (Wilf) N. Bergener was a pilot with the 367th Squadron (Heavy) of the 306th BG. He flew more than 25 missions between Feb and Aug 1945 out of Thurleigh Field and brought all of his crew and a/c home. He piloted a B-17F-50-VE Fortress #42-6153, „Good Pickin“. I have a photo of him and his crew posed in front of their Fortress. I am happy to supply a copy along with details of his crew and a/c.
