These numbers will be adjusted slightly after the data is cleaned up a bit more.  A few aircraft shouldn't be in this index as they were never actually assigned to 381st although they were scheduled to be.  Other aircraft were assigned right before the 381st began its movement stateside.  Some were assigned, only be transferred within a day or so to other groups.
