Here you will find the 11 crew members
aboard the Kee Bird in February, 1947 on it's last flight. Each crew member is listed alphabetically with their rank and position
on the Kee Bird.
Some of the "Kee Bird" crew members, just a couple of
years prior to this incident, were risking their lives flying B-29 bombing missions in
the Pacific and European arenas during World War II. Many of their Comrades lost their lives
during those times.
The average age of the "Kee Bird" crew was mid-20's, and these Men were already seasoned B-29 veterans.
