P-39? Stanley J. Singer sjsinger Charlie

I was correct in saying that it was a P-39. the first group of black pilots arriving in Italy formed a new squadron equipped with the P-39. Its performance was bad and it was soon removed from our inventory but it did its job for one grateful B-25 crew.

I admit it was a lucky shot, but he did come in from above and got in a lucky shot, lucky or not I am grateful.
