MACR Missing Air Crew Reports and Summaries

I am in the process of digitizing and summarizing the MACRs I have available. To each MACR PDF file I am adding a summary for a cover page, an excerpt from Lambert Austin’s 344th Silver Streaks book, and pictures I may have come across. Note information received from the Germans is sometimes included and often quite thorough. Some of the MACRs were difficult to read. That is one reason why I summarized them. The summary may cause more hits to come up via search engine making the information more assessable. I will be adding more files as I complete them so please return often. If you have any comments or information/pictures to contribute do not hesitate to write me  Damonbok@hotmail.com
