Welcome to the 345th Bomb Group's Website.


The 345th Bomb Group was first activated at Columbia Army Air Base, SC, in November 1942. The "Air Apaches" were the first full Air Force combat Group sent the Pacific in World War II and flew the B-25 Mitchell. Shortly after arriving in theater their B-25's were converted to "strafer's", making them a low level ground and shipping attack plane.


The Unit was awarded four United States Distinguished Unit Citations and is one of the most decorated units of WWII.
