Tim Cooke <email@example.com> -----Message from: "Terino, John Civ USAF AETC ACSC/DEW" <John.Terino@MAXWELL.AF.MIL>----- The best place to start any research regarding the B-29 is Kenneth Werrell's book "Blankets of Fire: U. S. Bombers over Japan during World War II." http://www.amazon.com/BLANKETS-Smithsonian-History-Aviation-Spaceflight/dp/1560988711/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1265033873&sr=1-1-spell Werrell is such a meticulous researcher that you can see ample citations for the incident on page 288. The citations include the accident investigation report, which he obtained from Boeing according to footnote 49. JOHN G.

Bauer, "Boeing: The First Century," Taba Publishing, 2000, and "Boeing in Peace and War," Taba Publishing, 1991. I knew Gene when I lived in Enumclaw, WA. As of about 10 years ago he was still listed in the telephone book. Gene was considered by those inside and outside Boeing as the "keeper of all knowledge." He is a very personable guy, and I'm sure would welcome any direct inquiries.
