1st Lt. Robert F. Russell 12th Fighter Squadron (d.11th Nov 1944 )I'm looking for the family of pilot, 1st Lt. Robert Russell of 13th Air Force, 18th FG, 12th Fighter Squadron who was killed in action on 11th November, 1944. as I have in my Great Uncle's logbook a photo of his plane. They took off from Wama Airfield on Morotai on a fighter sweep over Tacloban on Leyte. Intercepted by Japanese Zeros over Cebu at 9:30am, Major Smith claimed two Zeros shot down off the tail of Russell's aircraft. Another pilot 1st Lt. Squire radioed Russell to "get out of the area" and he acknowledged. He was last seen over the northern tip of Negros.Luther Moore
