England Date:1945, June Duration:2 min 36 sec Sound:NO SOUND
U.S. P-47 Thunderbolt in flight. It displays a brown and orange paint job. It banks left and descends. American P-51 aircraft in flight. P-51s fly through and skim over tops of clouds. A flight of four P-51s in close formation, viewed from another aircraft close enough for the pilots to be visible in cockpits. The flight leader's P-51D has an ace of spades playing card painted below his cockpit and two dice -- a five and a four --painted on the nose of his plane under writing that reads "Down for double." He also has symbols for 16 victories painted below the rear of his cockpit. (Reportedly, this is the aircraft of Major Gordon Graham, of the 355th Fighter Group, who retired as a Major General, after a career in the U.S. Air Force.)
