B-24 BOMBER PILOT
IN THE 5TH AIR FORCE
IN SWPA DURING WW2
|visits since 2 January 2003|
Judy Bousquet is trying to find out information on her father Howard Hovland who was a B-24 bomber pilot in the 5th Air Force from 1944 to 1946. Judy has a 5th Air Force colour patch that belonged to her father.
Judy would like to know what Bomb Group and Squadron he belonged to. Judy thinks he was at a place called Ieshienk(sp) in the Philippines, Tatchitiewa(sp) in Japan and Seoul, Korea.
Can anyone help
me identify which Bomb Squadron
and Bomb Group that Howard Hovland was in?
422pl, 1850b, crew #182.
Back row:- Bill Heedman - co pilot, Howard Hovland - pilot, Ernie Schneldenback - Navigator, Bruce Edgington - Bombadier.

Can anyone help me with more information ?
