In 1945, Captain Andrew F Wilson, the 404th Fighter Group Press Relations officer and former Intelligence Officer with the Group's 507 Squadron, collated all the record and histories to produce "Leap Off" an official history of the 404th Fighter Group.
Recently Bill Lee, a former pilot of the 507th Squadron, produced an electronic version of Leap Off which included all the text and many, but not all the photographs.
Sadly Bill passed away a few year ago, but with the agreement of Andy Wilson and the 404th Fighter Group Families Association I have been given permission to offer the electronic version of Leap Off as a downloadable file. It is in PDF format so you will need Adobe Reader to view it and it is 8.26 mbs in size.
