Looking for info on my dad. William Zapka. I have a picture of him sitting in Little Mac... 484th BG. Zapzero1@aol.com is my email address also if you'd like. My dad passed 8yrs ago. Any folks remember my pop or what crew he was in.
W. Zapka is listed as engineer on the Thomas Bolt crew in Torretta Flyer #34 page 35 for a mission March 1, 1944. The plane (41-29519) is #24 and no "nickname" or noseart is associated with this plane. It was listed as transferred from the 484th. There is a picture of Bolt's crew in Torretta Flyer #22 page 6. Most of the crew is the same with a different co-pilot and Charles Renfro as engineer not Zapke. Hope this gives you some leads for your search. Bob Dixon Jr.
