General Tibbets makes us so very proud to be Americans. We are a military family and my husband and son protect our freedom. General Tibbets' story is a story of a hero. Thank you for your life and your service.

A relative of mine recently Informed me that Paul Tebbets and his crew made friends with my father in 1942, shortly after his arrival in England. My father was an RAF ‘Test Pilot' serving with the ‘Air Fighting Development Unit' at Duxford, Cambridgeshire. Paul Tebbets was based just 30 miles to the North West of Duxford. Many USAF crews visited the AFDU to be briefed on air combat. All captures Luftwaffe aircraft were based at Duxford, and my father regularly flew a Bf.109E, Bf.110, a Ju.88 and Heinkel111. AFDU pilots also flew in mock combat with USAF units to give the B-17 gunners experience of what they would face. Paul Tebbets crew, were apparently invited to my elder brothers ‘Christening'. He was born in Cambridge of the 24th October 1942. I have not yet found out when or ware the Christening took place. I need to find some clue's, however, to suggest that this meeting and resulting friendship took place.
Do you, or your family, have access to Paul Tebbets 'Log Book'. If so, would you be willing to photo-copy some of the pages. If this is possible I will give you suggestions of dates that I am interested in.
I am in my 14th year of writing the Biography of my father rather unique career in the RAF. Again, if you are interested' I could send you more details.


Yours Sincerely

I'm sorry to say I never had the chance to meet or speak with mr. Tibbets. My grandfather, Jerry Douglass Tibbetts, tells me that I'm related to him. I would very much like to find out if this is true, but even if I'm not, I still believe it was a sad day in this world when we lost him.

God Bless you Paul, I had gotten to know you quite well over the years, and still think of you to this day. You were not only a war hero, but I looked at you as a friend and you were always great to talk with.
I know the men of the USS Indianapolis thank you too for what you had done. They are good friends of mine too.
God Bless your family always,
Steve Savage
