    We lost a lot of men and B-17’s during the war against Germany until the P-51 Mustang was able to escort the bombers into Germany and back to England. When the P-51 came onboard the US ruled the skies over Germany. If the F-8 Grumman Bearcat had been available, we would have knocked all of Germany’s fighters out of the air much quicker.

    My dad flew as a waist gunner and “toggeler” in the Fifteenth AAF out of Italy from 1944 – 1945. He flew on 35 missions….One of these days I will take a flight on one of these incredible B17s


    My father in law was 6’2″ tall and he was a tail gunner on a B-17. He was shot down on his 24th mission while bombing Nuremberg Germany. He was placed in a series of concentration camps toward the end of the war and liberated by George Patton and his troops
