Aerial Photo Officer Captain Francis J. Cachat
saved over 900 individual photographs during his service with the 416th Bomb Group.
These have been scanned by his son-in-law Ron Papajcik and provided to the 416th Archive.
Nearly 800 of these photographs were initially grouped by broad subject areas and posted to the
Internet by Carl Sgamboti. The 416th Archive collection presented here has been expanded with
additional photographs, but retains Carl's original grouping.
Captions have been added where possible and a few photographs have been included in more than one group.
