MAJOR CHARLES KOTEC ARCHIVEThis archive is the result of an effort by Major Charles Kotec while in the Army during WWII and stationed in the China-Burma-India theater of war. He was the Commanding Officer for the 9th Photo Recon Squadron at the time these photographs were taken. There are 27 sub-categories within this article due both to the number of photographs and the way that they were archived when I received them. I left them the way I found them and used the same labels Major Kotec used to identify them.

On January 19th 1942 the 9th Photographic Squadron was established under the First Air Force as a photo-reconnaissance squadron at Mitchell Field, New York. Operated over the Northeast United States flying reconnaissance missions over the Atlantic coast and Newfoundland shipping lanes, primarily operating early-model F-4 (P-51B) Mustangs. Later assigned to Headquarters Tenth Air Force in the China-Burma-India theater of operations on the 30th of October in 1943 the unit began flying reconnaissance over Burma, Thailand and China primarily using the P-51D aircraft and later the P-38. During this time on November 13 1943 the unit was re-designated: 9th Photographic Reconnaissance Squadron.
