Currently treasurer of 466th Bomb Group Association and web master at My father-in-law, William G. Horney Jr. served with the 466th Bomb Group, 786th Squadron as navigator on the Dougherty Crew 612 (#633 in some books). Their primary aircraft was B-24H-15-CF #41-29366 "Dirty Gertie". His crew flew 30 missions between June 14- August 30, 1944. Bill Horney flew two make-up mission in October, 1944 for two missions he missed with strep-throat. I have worked professionally in video production since 1980 and have videotaped interviews with many 8th Air Force Veterans and posted many of them on YouTube and given DVD Copies to the 8th Air Force Historical Society Museum. In 2012 we brought 3 466th Bomb Group Veterans and 9 descendants back to Attlebridge Airfield for Memorial Day. I shot veteran interviews as well as local residents in the Weston-Longville area, who remembers the "American Boys" during WWII. I produced a documentary on the trip titled: "Return to Attlebridge" which is available on DVD in both the UK and in the US.
