P47 Series

A ‘portrait’ study of the mighty ‘Jug’ in it’s natural environment - a big sky. This particular example (a P47-D) flew from Duxford in 1944 with the 84th Fighter Squadron, 78th Fighter Group. These units were deeply involved in escort and ground attack roles racking up some 465 missions with 326 air combat ‘kills’ - however at a cost of 200 combat losses and 100 pilots killed in action. The airframe name would indicate some lack of faith in the higher echelons at the 8th AF - snafu refers to ‘situation normal all fouled up’ - well maybe not ‘fouled’. The dark side of military humour is always there just below the surface.

All together over 15,000 examples of the P47 were produced - a massive input to the Allied air effort.
