    Hi There

    What a wonderful way to find previously unavailable info.

    I am at present writing a monograph on the TBF/TBM Avenger for British publisher Warpaint Publications, and the story will not be complete without mentioning the STAG-1 exploits with the TDR drone in the Pacific. For this reason, i ask permission to use the photograph above, showing crew of Control Plane Who Made First Successful Standoff Guided Missile Attack on a Designated Defended Enemy Target, Spetember 27, 1944, as well as one of the pictures of the TDR itself. I will of course credit STAG-1 website in the captions. If you agree, can you send me a copy with better resolution (300 dpi) suitable for printing?

    Thanks and best regards
