Questions and contradictions[edit]

I have just finished copyediting this article, but a few things still stand out:

In '1945': "It received a DUC for attacking oil storage facilities at Oshima" and later in the same paragraph: "receiving another DUC for this action"
What is a DUC?
I think it means 'Distinguished Unit Citation', but as it turns up without introduction or explanation, I would rather be sure before I or anyone else adds it.

That's what it is. It's now spelled out in the infobox --Lineagegeek (talk) 15:55, 29 August 2013 (UTC)

'Postwar', para 1: "Demobilization was in full swing and the group turned in its aircraft and was inactivated on 1 October 1946"
'Postwar', para 2: "Demobilization meant that the group turned in its aircraft and was inactivated on 31 March 1946"
The statements seem to contradict each other.

Yes check.svg Done They sure do. All references to the group turning in its planes have been removed. (it didn't, the planes were transferred to another group).--Lineagegeek (talk) 15:55, 29 August 2013 (UTC)

I may be missing something, so somebody with the expertise (or the sources), might well want to fix this situation.

Location of modifications[edit]

The article indicates that modifications to the B-29s in 1944 were performed elsewhere. However [1] would seem to indicate civilian workers were hired to perform the modifications at Great Bend. Which is it?--Lineagegeek (talk) 16:55, 28 August 2013 (UTC)
