Data derived from many sources. Corrections/Additions welcomed via Helpdesk

* NOTE ON DATES: IMPORTANT: For consistency, the Date is given as the date the mission TOOK OFF since the precise time of a loss is not always certain. Take Off date is unambigous and fixed in the official records, but obviously in those cases where the incident occurred before midnight UK time, then the Take Off Date will be the same as the Incident Date. Of course, most Bomber Command missions flew through midnight, therefore a Luftwaffe claim against a plane - or a locally generated crash report - may record the incident as occurring on the day following our Take Off Date. Bear this in mind when cross-referencing to our Luftwaffe Victories by Name/Date Database and other Luftwaffe sources. In some cases other sources may quote the date following our date, using locally generated reports as their source. To add to the potential for confusion, remember to take into account a Luftwaffe recorded date will be in local time, 1 hour ahead of UK time. When we discover a validated Incident Date we change our record if necessary

He became an ace in one day with 6 air victories. He named each of his aircraft 'Little One' in his wife's honour. Raised on a farm near Paicines, California. He joined the U.S. Army Air Corps in 1943 and served in the air force for twenty-three years. Bryan and his fellow 352d pilots were so effective as bomber escorts that their German counterparts begin to call them "those blue-nosed bastards of Bodney." Flying out of Bodney, England, and later out of Chievres and Asch, Belgium, Bryan and other pilots of the 352d officially were credited with the destruction of 806.5 enemy aircraft. In addition to Bryan, the 352d produced twenty-eight other aces and won the Army Air Force's highest unit citation twice. The 352d was the top-scoring fighter squadron in the European theater. The skill of the 352d's pilots and the performance of their Mustangs is difficult to exaggerate, as illustrated by Bryan's personal record. In addition to the five downed aircraft in one day on November 2, 1944, Bryan is credited with three downed enemy aircraft in one day on a previous mission (September 27, 1944). He later downed one of Adolf Hitler's new jet fighters, which Germany introduced toward the end of the war. Bryan also led the ultimately successful mission to find a fellow fighter pilot, Fremont Miller, who was forced to ditch in the very cold waters of the North Sea on April 15, 1944. Miller survived on a dinghy for three days, during which time Bryan attempted two rescue missions in foggy, dangerous conditions. Finally, leading a group of sixteen Mustangs after another mission on April 18, Bryan decided to search one more time for the lost pilot—a successful search that led to Miller's rescue and saved his life.
