I've started extracting information on the Continental airfields from my copy of the IX Engineer Command history. I've also started adding the fighter groups from the book "Ninth Air Force Story". The table is pretty wide so I'll have to play with formatting after I get all the data in but until then ... here is the draft page

My Father, Nathan M. Ellington served with the 391st BG/572nd (B-26 Marauders). They flew out of Matching Green, England and then relocated to A73 at Roye Ami (Sept. 1944). He said that the landing strips were in good shape when they arrived, although the hangars and other buildings were pretty shot-up from Allied actions against the Luftwaffe bomber and fighter units stationed there... kudos to the Engineer units for a lot of work in a short amount of time... Dad passed in 2007, but he may have left some photos of A73
