Sample text

Razorback number 18, in the background, has only the white empennage, the red stripes not yet having been painted. Standard loadout for the P-47 was a 500-lb. bomb under each wing. According to the squadrol/ histories, on occasion, a thousand pouNder was ca rried on each hard poil/t. Mike Browl/ of the 526th was a "plank owner" of the 86th, llaving been with the Croup sil/ce the il/ceptiol/. He previollsly owned the A-36 "Baby Carmen" and, after the A-36s went away, took charge of "Malicious Millie".

We crossed the coast of southern France and headed north at about 10,000 feet. Shortly I noticed three Me-l09s crossing beneath us. 1 told my wingman to jettison his bombs and follow me down. 'he three airo'aft were Jlying line abreast. 1 pulled in behind the aircraft farthest to the left and was about to pull the trigger wilen 1noticed an airscoop underneath his left wing. Rernembering that the Spitfire has a sirnilar air-scoop arrangement, I told my wingman to hold his fire while I did a closer visual inspection.

00 dollars worth of "hard beverages" for the enlisted men's club. On one of the last missions flown from Pisa, 8 February, in an aJl-out effort to provide close support to the 92nd Division engaged in a hard slugging match in the Serchio Valley, the Group flew 25 missions for a total of 109 individual aircraft sorties. On the same day, in a testament to the ruggedness of the Thunderbolt, a P-47 flown by the 1st Brazilian Squadron, still at Pisa, caught fire on takeoff. Both 500 lb. bombs exploded but the pilot walked away with only minor injuries.
