During the project, a selection of fascinating historic images from the 9AFA Archives were digitized and made available online.  These include historic World War II-era photographs of Ninth Air Force personnel and bomb strikes in addition to a complete run (1991-2012) of the association’s newsletter, The Ninth Flyer.  The digital materials can be accessed at contentDM.  Funding for the project was generously provided by the 9AFA.
