I so well remember seeing the P-47s from Bradley Field flying over my town during WWII. I was very involved in a memorial service which we conducted in 1995 at small memorial in the Farmington, CT Memorial Forest which honors the memory of 2dLt. Vincent Core. Lt. Core crashed at this site on April 11, 1945 and was killed. As a result, I had the good fortune to meet Lt. Core's sister, Claudia Civitella, who was in attendance at our invitation. We have become very close friends since then. I greatly admire all of you who flew that beautiful airplane in defense of our country.

I'm trying to locate someone who flew with (and possibly knew) Claude R. O'Brien (deceased) who was a First Lt. in the Army Airforce during WWII, with the 404 fighter bomber squadron station in England in 1944. Hope you can help. Thanks Stephen and Claudia Floethe (941) 433-3994

I am researching the P47 for our town soccer club as Scarsdale raised monies to purchase 100 Thunderbolts during WWII. I am hoping to find a good line drawing of a P47 to use as part of our Memorial Day Tournament.

I am an avid student of the air war in WWII, and a member of the National Warplane Museum in Elmira,NY. I truly believe that the Thunderbolt's combination of firepower, ruggedness, and sheer power made it unarguably THE best fighter and fighter/bomber of the War! We were fortunate enough to have a P-47 at our museum's Wings of Eagles Airshow this year, and there is just an awesome quality to the plane. It was parked on the tarmac next to three P-51's and a P-40, but the Jug just seemed to overwhelm the other fighters(in my mind, at least). Not only that, but there is absolutely no substitute for the mighty roar of that incredible Pratt & Whitney R-2800 engine. SWEET MUSIC!!

As I have previously noted on this site, I am a former P-47 and P-51 pilot, and was stationed on Iwo Jima prior to the end of World War II, where I flew with the 413th Fighter Squadron (P-47). I arrived on Iwo Jima on July 8, 1945, and left to return to the United States in mid-November 1945. If there are any other former pilots who were on Iwo Jima at that time, particularly from my squadron or any of the other squadrons in my group (414th Fighter Group, 7th Fighter Command, 20th Air Force), I would be delighted to hear from you. Sincerely, Frank Johnson

Seeking information on P-47 pilot Scotty Bannerman. He was /is from North or South Dakota. Scotty was a flying instructor in the RCAF at 9 SFTS Centralia.He transferred to the USAAF stating he wanted to fly something with an armful of throttles. Apparently he got one big throttle with the P-47.
