MIA Database Redesign - Request For Information

Post by Daniel Leahy » Sat Apr 15, 2006 6:04 pm

Hi All,

Justin and I have been working on a redesign/update for the MIA section of the website:
http://www.pacificwrecks.com/mia/index.html

I would be interested in hearing what people would like to see in such a section, so please post any ideas relating to this.

Also, I would love to hear from anyone whose relatives are still listed as missing in the Pacific (even if a page is already listed on the site). Air or ground war MIA cases would be greatly appreciated, so please forward any information and/or photos.

Hi Daniel,
Excellent. Our email contact and web address details require updating for VHCIZ A65-83.
I have quite a bit of new info and corrections as well if you would like that.
Cheers
Macca

MIA section looks good, like always :)

How about adding subs that went missing? I have been researching both U.S. and Dutch subs that went missing and its really interesting research.

Also, I should be getting a photo scanned of WOJG Dawson Hutchison (MACR 6580)
I'm still researching 41-2464, last flight and two other MACR that sparked my intrest. MACR 3495 & 1544.
I have also been thinking about looking into 42-92062 (MACR 9016) last flight after I am down with the above..

At the moment I'm concentrating on aircraft and land forces, though would be very interested to hear about missing submarines in the Pacific. Feel free to drop us a line if you get a chance.

The MIA Database - Project PRIAM - has now been uploaded, though is still in early stages.
