Hello heroes! Thanks for finally getting on the web. My dad flew with the 371st FG, 404th Squadron and was KIA over Cherbourg on June 24, 1944. I was born two months later. Perhaps some of you remember me from the Seattle and Colorado Springs reunions. It was an honor to be with you. This past June I made my third visit to Normandy and the place where my dad gave his life. The citizens of Octeville, where he crashed, built a park on the site and named it ’Square Strahlendorf’ in honor of their liberator, the only Allied flier to go down within the town boundaries during the war. On Flag Day this year I was especially proud to represent my dad and the other comrades you lost at a memorial service at our Normandy Cemetery overlooking Bloody Omaha Beach. Best wishes to you all, and God bless you. Thanks for your contribution to our freedom. Harry, Jr.

I am a life member of the P-47 THUNDERBOLT PILOTS ASSOCIATION and am very new on the internet. How pleasing it is to find this website. Hope to visit often. I flew 90 missions over Europe in the ’JUG’ and was in the 371st Fighter Group, 404th Squadron. Would love to hear from some of my old comrade-in-arms. With my son’s prompting, I recently took a renewed interest in WWII events and have even published a book containing mission summaries I kept in 1944/45. Hang in there!!!

Hi all. My uncle, Major Edward P. Fitzgerald was the operations officer for the 412Ftr.Sq. 373 Ftr.Gp. he was lost Sept.20 1944 if anybody knew him or might have some pictures or info about him, I sure would like to hear from you. For anyone who is interested if you want to send someone copies of those rare and irreplaceable photos, try your local Kinko’s or Office Depot, and have a COLOR Zerox copy made of your Black and White photo, sometimes they seem to come out better than the original. Please check out my site dedicated to the men of the 373rd Ftr Gp. http:\members.ecom.net~brulow373htm Comments and suggestions welcomed brulow@hotmail.com

I am researching AAF Station 342 Atcham, near Shrewsbury, England for a possible book and would very much like to contact anyone who passed through the 495th Fighter Training Group on theater training for the P-47. Dave Smith (Air Traffic Controller, Liverpool Airport)

My father, Wilbur John Phillips, Jr. served as a pilot with the 10th FS, 50th FG, 9th AF from May 1944-Nov. 1944. Through traditional mail several years ago, contacted John Brown of Cincinnati, his flight leader,who provided wonderful pix and insight. Would be interested in touching base with anyone else who knew Lt. Phillips. Thanks for everything.

I am trying to locate anyone with info about my dad, 1st Lt. David T.Zimms, who flew P47’s and P51’s over Germany and Eng land during WWII. He named his planes Stinky and Stinky 2 He died when I was 15 in 1966 and I have missed out on asking all those questions about his time in the war. If you know about him or know where I can begin to search for more infor- mation please contact me. He was out of New York , spring- field Gardens. I have a picture of him near his plane Stinky, with his Crew Chief Sgt. Snyder. Mom says he had to bail out twice, once over land, once over Sea. Any one with info on where I can research please contact my E-mail. thanks and keep up the great site.

It is nice to see that your association has a website. I will checking in from time to time to see what’s new. May I suggest, everyone with an interest in the P-47 and WWII aviation in general, visit the ’Planes and Pilots of World War Two’ website at: http://home.att.net/~C.C.Jordan/index.html This is an online WWII aviation site with original articles on the aircraft and men who flew them. We are currently featuring an article by Dick Rossi, an original Flying Tiger ace. Other articles feature the Republic P-44 and due online by July 25, 1998 - The Republic P-47M. Stop by and visit.

I am 25 and i am lucky enough to have seen and heard a P47 flying at an airshow and it was a great moment. It is very good to see such an associaion of pilots who did so well in flying this great airplane. Congratulations to you all, I hope your efforts will serve for the future generations of pilots and non pilots to know better this part of history.

A great airplane flown by great fighter pilots. In tribute to you and your mount, we are trying to keep the history alive. We’re producing a television documentary tribute to the late Col. ’Hub’ Zemke and The Wolfpack. It’s titled ’Zemke’s Way,’ and will be seen on selected public television stations in the near future.

I was pleasantly surprised to come across this site. I hope it can be expanded to cover every unit that flew the P-47.

Any perpetuation of history is a noble undertaking. With the new technologies available today, such as this website,a rare opportunity to bridge a space of 50+ years in the historical record is afforded. The importance of this documentation may not be entirely appreciated now, but for the future, the lessons and experiences of the past may be of inestimable value. I look forward to seeing updates and new info from this site.

I concur with my friend Joe Noah below - Mr. Dyer (below), next time you view ’Fighter Squadron’, note many P-47s from the 362nd FG ’The Maulers’. We invite all to visit our ’USAAF Resource Page’, profiling mainly fighter pilots & a/c from WWII: http://www.tiac.net/users/srose/urg/index.html

Delighted to see your P-47 site. My cousin, the late Major George Preddy, top Mustang ace, also flew the Jug. He scored three aerial victories in the P-47, none in the P-40 while in Australia, and all the rest of his 27 aerial victories in the P-51. You have put together a great site. Congrats!!

Hi I am a member of the advocates group. Saw the WWW site in a mailing from the Advocates. Just love p-47, wish A&E,History, and Discovery Channels realize there was another fighter in WWII other than the Mustang. I hope to send a letter to The HIstory channel for their MOVIES IN TIME section C/O Sander Vanocker to run the movie Fighrt Squadron with Robert Stack , Edward O’Brien etc. I saw it when it first came out, and years ago i made a copy of TNT Channel. Nice to see a web site for the plane. I sold a drugstore in 1992 and another in 1995 along with my brother. I took some cash and had Anderson Model Co make me a model of Col Hub Zemke’s pP-47 with proper paint and labels--best $195.00 spent in a long time!! Regards
