Hello, This Website is Dedicated to the Crew and Families of the Daisy Mae

My name is Wayne F. Perkins

This site is my research site on my forth coming book, The Last Flight of the Daisy Mae.

The Alamo in the Sky
The Daisy Mae

The story is about the fine crew of the Daisy Mae and focuses on their last bombing mission over Wake Island, on July, 24, 1973.

I hope  you enjoy what is coming.  I am looking for information, stories and pictures related to the 42nd Squadron, 11th Bomb Group, from the Spring and Summer of 1943.

Thank you,


Wayne F. Perkins
