P-47 Thunderbolts colour footage...


Recommended Posts

Great wartime colour footage Jack.


They were brave guys indeed who flew those heavy 'Jugs' into aerial combat, all too many of them not living to tell the tale. I was fortunate enough to attend the 355th Fighter Group reunions in 1993 and 1995 and had the privilage of meeting many of the GROUPS pilots and Aces, who flew operational combat sorties from their Cambridgeshire airfield flying the P-47 Thunderbolt and P-51 Mustang.


Its not until now that I look back, I realise just how privilaged I was to be part of these unique events and meet these very special men - many of whom have now passed on.


Footage like this makes you realise just what flying combat was all about and in full colour too!
