Anderson crew

 

In September, Bowen took over most of what had been the Anderson crew and Anderson then continued with a largely new crew. Did Bowen and Anderson switch crews? Either the Bowen or Anderson crew had the name Silver Fox associated with them. Neither crew flew more than two or three B-24 missions, so Silver Fox was most likely a B-17.
