Thursday morning, October 14, 1943 383 8th Air Force heavy bombers—B-17’s and B-24’s—lifted off from nineteen bases in southeastern England: destination, the ball-bearing factories in Schweinfurt, in central Germany. Sixteen 305th Bomb Group, 364th Bomb Squadron B-17’s lift off the runway in Chelveston, England.
My wife Kathy’s uncle, Staff Sergeant Russell Joseph Kiggins was a tail gunner on one of the B-17’s. Schweinfurt was his sixth mission.

Schweinfurt was very heavily defended. 60 B-17’s—600 men—failed to return to England. The mission became known as Black Thursday. Thirteen of the 364th’s B-17’s never even reached Schweinfurt, lost to machine guns, cannons, and rockets fired by swarms of single- and twin-engined German fighters.

HRFA Access Survey

Announcing The Hudson River Fishermen’s Association Hudson River Access Survey

It is clear to all fishermen that you can’t catch fish if you can’t get to the water. Over the years volumes have been written about the Public Trust Doctrine and endless fights with property owners, industries and communities to not only get to the water’s edge but also to park and to be able to spend some time fishing. Now there is something you can do about it.
