Acknowledgement

I want to thank Charles H. Nogle of Illinois, owner of Nogle and Black Aviation, who is a cousin of Floyd's widow (my grandmother). He conducted research on several continents, contacted numerous military organizations and dedicated years of hard work to collect information about Floyd's military service and tragic death. He did this in tribute to Floyd and many other brave pilots and servicemen who fought Nazi forces in Europe.
