Air Apaches – True Story of 345th Bomb Group & Its Low, Fast, & Dirty Missions in WWII – 75th Anniversary Special Presentation

December 21, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

The American 345th Bomb Group–the Air Apaches–was legendary in the war against Japan. The first fully trained and fully equipped group sent to the South Pacific, the 345th racked up a devastating score against the enemy. Armed to the teeth with machine guns and fragmentation bombs, and flying their B-25s at impossibly low altitudes –often below fifty feet–the pilots and air crews strafed and bombed enemy installations and shipping with a fury that helped cripple Japan. To tell their remarkable story, author Jay Stout worked closely with the group’s surviving veterans and dug deep into firsthand accounts. Book signing to follow program.   Presenter: Jay Stout
