This is a transcription by Gary L. Ferrell of the Passenger Lists of the 72 planes that the 34th Bomb Group returned to the US in June 1945 at the end of WWII. Most of this information comes from Microfilm reel B0115 that I obtained from Maxwell AFB. The names of the planes come from various sources including but not limited to books by Walter Forman and Roger Freeman. The dates for the return of each aircraft are from Roger Freeman’s, B-17 Flying Fortress Story. The Military Occupation numbers are assumed to be Army Air Force numbers unless noted otherwise, such as ORD for Ordinance, or MC for Medical Corp, etc. When a plane did not see combat service in the 34th Bomb Group, its combat group is noted if known.
