"Planes and People of the 457th Bomb Group"
Most of these photos are from Bernie Bains photo collection - plus many that have been added since his demise.
On the morning of March 10th, 2000, the 457th Bomb Group Association lost one of it's earliest and best-loved members. Bernie Bains died on this date in a hospital in Cambridge, England.
He will be missed by all who knew him. This photo collection is displayed here for your enjoyment.

    There are more than 2000 photos in this collection.  In order to make some sense out of this list I have elected to present these photos in catagories that match what the picture represents.

To select one of the catagories, just click on it.

If anyone viewing these photos has anything to add in the way of corrections to flyers identity or plane names or descriptions, please feel free to email me with the correction and I'll promptly update the file. I want to make this archive complete and accurate and I need your help to do that. If anyone has photos of the 457th that are not presently displayed here, please send or email them to me and I'll post them as quickly as I can.
