Repost or not, fuckin A, lieutenant!

Notice on the side the pilot and the crew chief have the same last name. I wonder if they were brothers. Pretty cool dynamic if that was the case. One brother fixes up the plane while the other uses it to kill nazis.

Killing Nazis seems like the best use of a fighter plane. I hope the lieutenant got plenty of opportunities to down those fascist fuckers.

I used to work at American Forces Network and there was this old Colonel who came in about once a year who was one of the last of the Tuskegee Airmen or maybe even the last one by that time.

It was always a big deal when he came in and he got the VIP treatment from everyone in the building.

American heroes in every regard. A shame they're almost all gone now.

haha... honestly, it's kinda OP's fault for assuming a 21st-century audience will automatically know the practice of scoring kills using their enemy's insignia. Side note: Charles Hall could launch a thousand boats with this picture.
