Paul Tibbets was a guest at the Lunken Air Show in Cincinnati in 2004. I was Director of Safety and Security. His well-being was my responsibility while he spoke with attendees and signed books, etc. I really enjoyed my time with Paul while I stayed with him during his entire visit. He signed my Air Show poster, which will be kept by my family, permanently. Ron Ferrier, U.S. Air Force Veteran

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
