This is an example of an edited report that I received from the Air Force a number of years ago compared to the same report that I printed out from microfilm.

Edited Report from the Air Force Unedited Report from AAIR
Not bad, just a negative rather than a positive.  
Whoa!
Almost everything is edited. These two pages were all I received out of the entire report.
Quite a bit more informative!

These two pages are what would be considered the Cover Page and Synopsis Page.

 

The pages below were left out by the Air Force from my request a number of years ago. Information such as witness statements and coordinates were left out, all of which helps tell the story and are important in locating the site.

Witness Statement Control Tower Statement Engineering Officer Statement Crash Certificate
Operations Order Aircraft Clearance Report Cover Letter Telegram

While the photos are not all that great they at least show that the B-24 hit near the top of a ridge and spread debris over the top and back down the other side.
