mission list and twelve B-17 Flying Fortresses flown between
March 27th thru August 26th, 1944 out of Horham Airfield, England.


In the Winter of 1936 a beauty of a photograph was taken of my father Ernest Anders Erickson at fifteen in his full Charles Lindbergh aviator threads - leather jacket, pants, shirt and very cool high laced boots. He was looking pretty snappy in the middle of the Depression in Dakota.

My father is standing with his cousin Robert (Bob) Nelson and his grandfather, Anders Nelson on the family farm in Painted Woods, North Dakota.

Below the image of "An Aviator's Dream - The Man From Painted Woods" (title page) you will find the color version of the photograph.
