Al Coburn told Mike Merryman that he was mentioned in a magazine called "Flying" back in about 1971. There is an article about Charles Lindbergh being in the 475th Fighter Group and attached to Al Coburn's 433rd Fighter Squadron. The article mentions Al Colburn by name as being Charles Lindbergh's Wingman on a mission.

 

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

I'd like to thank Mike Merryman for passing on the above photographs on this web page. Mike's father, Delmar Lee Merryman (new deceased), who was 87 years old in 2005, was a member of the 4th Depot Repair Squadron, 4th Air Depot from 1942 to 1945.

 

Can anyone help me with more information?
