Ground Crews: Harvey May

Keep ’em Flying

Mechanic S.Sgt Harvey May, Jr.

While the aircrews were getting all the glory, back at Rattlesden ground crews worked around the clock to keep the aircraft of the 447th in the air. Steve Borcherding (grandson of 708th Squadron mechanic S/Sgt Harvey May, Jr.) provided these photos to help us remember them.


May’s crew also included crew chief Norman V. Shoup, L. Dittman, G. Reinke, J. Coppinger, A. Baylor, H. Smith and D. Bohn.
