We will be joined by our older brothers, The 307th BG B-24 Long Rangers of World War II, B-29 combat veterans, from the 307th BW of the Korean War period, the 307th ARS who kept us refueled from their KC-97 tankers, and the folks from the newest version of the 307th at Barksdale who sport B-52s under the aegis of the Air Force Reserve Command.  Because of the divesity of the groups coming together, we are billing this as the 307th BW Combined Bomber/Tanker Reunion. 


Trouble Report:  From the inception of this website in 2003, we have published a running log of those who have made their last flight and have posted it under the Events Tab which appears at the top of this page.

Alas, the computer gremlins have bit us and we have not yet found the antidote. In plain language, we can't enter new info into the Events file.

But there's a work-around.  The same info is now in the Newsletter Tab as a viewable/downloadable PDF file.

If you have any Anti-Gremlin treatment, please share.
