Many thanks Elliot
the two links only show a part of the postwar history of this aircraft - what I am looking for is the time between 1941 and 1945. Squadrons/Tactical Reconnaissance Group/etc.?
Thank you Alice
I "challenged" this potential source some years ago but Piper does not know (the archives do not cover the early 1940's).
Is there an Air Force archive which holds records concerning WW2 somewhere in the USA?
Many thanks for your efforts - Greetings from Switzerland!
I might be wrong, but after doing some additional searching I am convinced that the Serial # 43-29823 is incorrect. Other numbers have shown up on Googlebooks.com but that one never does.
Dear Mr. Ferrari,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
The National Air and Space Museum of the Smithsonian Institution has custody of a microfilm copy of the Air Force and Army Air Force aircraft history record cards. The cards list a plane's serial number, place of manufacture, and manufacturer's contract number, and may include information for each month that the plane was in service, the place of assignment, cumulative flying hours, and any repairs or accidents. They cover information from the date the plane was put into service to the date it was destroyed or withdrawn from service. For access to the microfilm, please contact the National Air and Space Museum Archives, 14390 Air & Space Museum Parkway, Chantilly, VA 20151 or email NASMRefDesk@si.edu.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
