This site is dedicated to the brave men who served with the 486th Bomb Squadron, 340th Bomb Group, 12th Air Force during WWII.

This site is a work in progress and will be updated periodically.  Please feel free to share your stories, photos, and items from the squadron so we can continue to grow the site.  We have many more items to add to the museum but are constantly looking for more, so feel free to take photos of your items and we can add them to the museum as well.  Lastly if you recognize anyone from the photos please help us identify them as none were labeled in the album they were taken from.

The site is best viewed on a computer or tablet.  We are still working on the mobile version which isn't displaying correctly at this time.

    50th anniversary of the

57th Bomb Wing Association

The 57th Bomb Wing Association held their 50th reunion this weekend at the Mid-Atlantic Air Museum's WWII weekend.  I attended on Saturday and had a great time.                             I'm grateful to be a part of this great organization.
