JG Juggernauts???

Recommended Posts

It's no secret for my love towards my rotary and radial powerplants. From Dreidecker, Camel, FW190, and now my all time favorite p47 razorback! So I was looking at the calendar for the squadron to make sure i didn't interfere with anything... and was wondering if anyone would be interested in flying some BIG AMERICAN MUSCLE on Sundays after 9pm Est?

 

P.S. i painted my p47's after the 56th FS (later split into the 61st,62nd, and 63rd) which trained in my hometown airfield and patrolled New York/ New England airspace until shipped on the boat over the pond.

My girl Dolores does not disappoint

As long as she passes the fidelity test.

 

On a side note if it wasn't for the pictures I wouldn't have realized the razorback was released.

Was a little bored today. So I decided to do a little research into Klai’s grandfather’s squadron.  This one is “Jenny Rebel”. My grandfather was in the pacific theatre. So until we get some pby5a’s or a SBD Dauntless, I’ll have to hold off on my grandfather’s paint schemes.

Here's another one from the 389th Fighter Squadron:

Republic P-47D-20-RE Thunderbolt 42-76378 of the 389th Fighter Squadron, 366th Fighter Group, 9th Air Force.

According to the book I have on the 366th Fighter Group (Angels Zero: P-47 Close Air Support in Europe, by Robert V. Brulle) - 

Quote

Lt. Karl Hallberg, 389th squadron, survived the explosion of a 500-pound bomb that dropped off his aircraft on landing at Y-29, 31 December 1944.  He sustained head wounds and a concussion that hospitalized him for a while.  He was bestowed the title "Luckiest Pilot in the 366th."

Pardon my French, but heilige Scheisse! If I were the surviving pilot I would've sent a crate of fine Scotch to Republic Aviation...
