Newest Display - P-47 Jockey
« on: September 29, 2016, 08:42:43 AM »
Thought the gang would  like to see the latest display that I have put together.  I used an old rifle case for a display platform.  This is all from a grouping from  a P-47 pilot who flew with the 9 AF, 358th FG, 366th FS.  ("The Orange Tails").  In addition he was also a Silver Star recipient. He made the Air Force his career, rising to the rank of Major General.  And yes that is a post war photo of him and Chuck Yeager.  This grouping was acquired directly from the family and they have asked that his name not be publicized for a certain period.  I would like to respect and honor that request at this time, so unfortunately this group will be "nameless" for a while.  But thought some might enjoy the photos anyhow.

Guys, thanks for the kind words.  It's one of the most complete groups that I have and I'm very fortunate to be the current caretaker.
