Abstract Burningham (b. 1918) grew up in Bountiful, Utah. He discusses his family, schooling, the Depression, and his LDS mission to New Zealand from 1937 to 1939. He worked at the Lockheed aircraft factory in California assembling P-38s prior to enlisting in the Army Air Corps in January 1943. He completed primary training in Santa Ana, California, flying Stearmans, then basic training in Lemoore, California, flying BT-13s, before going to Douglas, Arizona, for advanced training. After being trained in B-17s at Roswell, New Mexico, he joined his crew in Sioux City, Iowa. They flew to England to join the 457th, 8th Air Force bomb group stationed in Glatton. He relates his combat flying experiences. After flying thirty missions, he returned to the US in January 1945, where he was assigned as a B-17 instructor. He was discharged after the war ended and stayed in the Reserves until offered a regular commission in the Air Force in 1947, where he spent a total of thirty-two years before retiring.
