I am working on an article about the 753rd BS and in particular the B-24s equipped to use the Azon bomb system. I wish to make contact with any surviving crew members from the following aircraft in order to gather first hand accounts of Azon missions:

CONSOLIDATED B-24JAZ-95 – USAAF – 458BG 753BS – 42-100342 J4-A SATANS MATE
CONSOLIDATED B-24JAZ-150 – USAAF – 458BG 753BS – 44-40201 J4-N SILVER CHIEF
CONSOLIDATED B-24JAZ-155 – USAAF – 458BG 753BS – 44-40264 J4-K KISS ME BABY
CONSOLIDATED B-24JAZ-155 – USAAF – 458BG 753BS – 44-40277 J4-P MISS USED
CONSOLIDATED B-24JAZ-155 – USAAF – 458BG 753BS – 44-40281 J4-Q A DOGS LIFE
CONSOLIDATED B-24JAZ-155 – USAAF – 458BG 753BS – 44-40285 J4-H TABLE STUFF
CONSOLIDATED B-24JAZ-155 – USAAF – 458BG 753BS – 44-40287 J4-J BATCHELORS BEDLAM
CONSOLIDATED B-24JAZ-155 – USAAF – 458BG 753BS – 44-40291 J4-O ROYAL FLUSH

Although I have some photos of these B-24 I would like to source more and to correspond with relatives of the crew members of these aircraft who may have memories of them. Aso seeking contact with historians and researchers who may have first hand accounts or photos they are willing to share. I look forward to hearing from anyone who can help.
