A Republic P-47D Thunderbolt aircraft, with bubble canopy, in flight over clouds as seen from another plane flying extremely close. At one point, the two airplanes move a little too close as slipstream of lead plane (unseen) forces the P-47 to adjust. The P-47 has tail number: "226716" and "K" and "E4" are painted on its fuselage which indicates it was one of the P-47D-27s of the 362nd Fighter group, 377th Fighter Squadron (or later, of 86th Fighter Group, 525th Squadron). Slate at start notes the P-47 footage was shot by Air Force Lieutenant Colonel William Clothier, a famous cinematographer.
