8th Air Force Bomb Groups
For a brief history of each Bomb Group, see the Eighth Air Force Historical Society, WWII 8th AAF Bomber Groups page at: http://www.8thafhs.org/bombgrps.htm

The following list of Bomb Group and Fighter Group websites has been divided among those which, as of November 2022, are (1) still functioning, (2) simply refer visitors to the 8th AF website but apparently are not otherwise functioning, or (3) appear to be defunct, some of them having been taken over by commercial interests.

    I’m missing information on the 7PRG (Sq. 13,14, 22 and 27) as they al;so have been a part of the 8th. They have been opertaing the Mount Farm (UK) from end 1943 until 1945.
    They flew P-38 -F5’s (unarmed and only equiped with camera’s) or Spitfres.
    Would like to see this added to this website aswell.
    It is very difficult to find any of the many thousands of pictures they have made over their period of operation. Any one who knows where they are stored?
