My Uncle John B. Farrar, Jr was lost at sea when this B-17 went down on a secret mission along with 10 other crew members somewhere between Oahu and Midway. I am trying to find out details.

Hi there,

Thank-you for your post about your uncle, 1/Lt John B Farrar, Jr. I have updated the Project PRIAM page for your uncle, which is available here:
http://www.pacificghosts.com.au/priam/v ... sp?id=2007
Please feel free to send through any other information you might have and I will make sure this gets added to his profile ASAP.

I have also created a rather generic page for the aircraft he was lost aboard:
http://www.pacificghosts.com.au/priam/v ... Unk-USB17a
This will allow me to update the database with details as they come to light.

As always, feel free to e-mail me directly at daniel@pacificwrecks.com

Kind regards,
