WWII Fighter Pilot, Lt Arnol Sellars, MTO P-47 27 FG

Germany

27th Fighter Group, 527th Fighter Squadron, P-47 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

7 April, 1930 CENSUS; OKLAHOMA

Arnol I Sellers, Sr. (35) and Alice F Sellars (33) were living in Tulsa, Okla. (Kirkpatrick Heights) in 1930 on East Jasper Street. They had a son of 5 years of age, Arnol I Sellars, Jr.

7 April, 2013; Arnol is helping Research with the Historians of WWII in the MTO who are attempting to find and place every man, regardless of what he flew in or helped with. THIS is Arnol's STORY :)

To Barbi Ennis Connolly - 319th and 321st BG Historian and Historical Researcher in the 57th Bomb Wing (B-25 Medium Bombers) Barbi's dad/Edward C Ennis (1914-2005), 321st BG, B-25 RADAR/ Radio/ Aerial Gunner out of North Africa and Italy, 1943-44) Also sub for sevral Combat Missions as a Bombardier Toggler!

Barbi - Nice to hear a message from a Bomber historian. I was a P-47 pilot in the 522nd FBS in Italy, starting in Oct 44 I hear a lot about fighter history, but almost never sbout medium bombers. Most of my work was dive bombing and strafing ground targets, but twice we were assigned to escort B-25s. It was wierd, in a way - - - we were to escort them to about 75 miles before their target, then pull out ahead and bomb and strafe the flak so they wouldn't have so much junk coming up when they got there. Problem was we had such an external armament load,plus external fuel, that we could barely keep up with them en route, much less pull very far ahead on the target. They were pretty,though, all formed up like that. Post war, I was in a National Guard P-51 outfit, and we had our summer camp in 1947 at Enid Oklahoma, which was still a B-25 training base. That was the first time I had been very close while B-25's were milling about in the pattern, and the first time I ever heard how strange they sounded, clattering around. Apparently they got the job done very well, however. Regards, Arnol Sellars (God Bless our brave men - Barbi)

Lt Sellars, Shot-down P-47 2 Apr.'45/Germany

Heilbronn, Germany

MACR # 13649 for LOSS on 2 April,1945. Lt Arnol I Sellars was the Pilot of a P-47 D (30RA) of the 27th Fighter GROUP, the 527th Fighter Squadron out of Ochey, France.

P-47 #44-33066 was on the way to Heilbronn, Germany (Mission; Armed Recce) 10/10 visibility, shot down in the area of approx. 10 miles out from the Target/Heilbronn, Germany.

Fighter Pilot Lt Robert L Donavan reported that "Pilot was last seen going through overcast at R-9067. Approx 10 miles out of Heilbroon, the flight encountered light, intense and accurate FLAK.

Yellow flight Lt Sellars, flying Yellow #2 position said he was hit and had to bail-out..... he affirmed the direction and in Lt Donavan's opinion, he was just-barely inside friendly territory. Lt Donavan did not see the chute but stated that Lt Sellars was about 7 miles West/North West of Heilbronn, Germany.

12th Air Force, Padua, Italy - Ponterden, Italy Base on 11 Feb. 1945. The GROUP would move up to Ochey, France next. (Where Arnol Sellers was based out of when he was shot-down 2 April, 1945.
