You can connect to the Berloga dogfight server and select the P-47D. It will only allow you to look at custom skins inside the hangar, but it's better than nothing.

You can see her yourself in QMB ! Just select her as an opponent or wingman.

Here ya go Gents,

I'm sorry I haven't posted anything for a bit. I was finishing up a huge skin pack for Gambit and his new Bodenplatte Campaign which I'm sure is going to be awesome. I cant wait. Anyway I thought you would enjoy this skin, it's the 386th Commander's plane and I'm releasing this to you all cause a had to turn away so many pilots asking for the Hellhawks skins. I present to you for your enjoyment. I particularly like his kill-board with the milk jugs..very cool touch.

 

The 386th "Beautiful" flown by Captain William Ritchie in France 1944.

Here ya go Gents,

 

Another from the 365th HellHawks gang. This one was flown by Capt. Val Beaudrault who was from the 386th FS and was credited with the 1st ME-262 kill.

The "Miss Pussy IV". I know, I know but this plane is worth it...Enjoy!

No.22, 73rd FS, 318th FG

made a clean and weathered version

Empire Express was actually a P47N based on Ie Shima. Those long range flights to Japan were known as "Empire Missions." I would very much like to see those last months of the war in the Pacific done as a combat flight simulator.....but I know it's not going to happen.

Actually, the first 262 kill goes to a couple of pilots from the 78th Fighter Group. Major Joseph Myers and his wingman, Lt. Manford Croy Jr. The jet pilot was Oberfeldwebel "Ronny" Lauer of KG 51. He reported that he was strafed as he ran from his crash landed 262. 

Beaudrault, in Miss Pussy, did engage a 262, and while manuevering at low altitude to evade him, the jet crashed into the ground and exploded. Interestingly enough, this was Lauer again. Also interesting is the fact that 8th Air Force high command did not give Beaudrault credit for the kill because he never fired at the German fighter. And yet they awarded him the Distinguished Flying Cross for the action!

Thanks for the info but I'm going by what was written here ....In the last paragraph he did eventually get the kill, but the 78th FG did get 1st ME-262. He was first for the Ninth AF. Oddly enough it was the same Axis pilot too..Oberfeldwebel  Lauer

Well...good addition to the story. Good for his wife for working so hard to make sure he got credit for the kill.

Hi all, 

 

I want to do a free skin request for a P-47D Thunderbolt that was shot down during the war in my home town to remember and honour this brave pilot.

I dont have any photo's of this plane or the crash site. The pilot was killed in action on 11 November 1943 in P-47D 42-8668 356FG/360FS.

The name of the pilot was Dolor A Martin. See this link for more information:  http://www.americanairmuseum.com/person/42213

Thanks Wolfe 🙂

 

The only photo I found was this one:  http://www.americanairmuseum.com/sites/default/files/media/media-36379.jpeg

Note:  It looks like there is something written below the name STEWPOT.

 

I will search for more pictures of this aircraft.

Best wishes to your sister and never give up the fight against cancer.

 

PS: Both my parents recovered from cancer a few years ago.

 

Best regards Grippen7.

Hey Gents

I spent the day looking at my created skins and decided to go over them with a fine tooth comb...I came across the 325th FG BIG STUD and noticed a couple of mistakes on my part so I took the time to create this final version of the beauty. I corrected the OD Glare to include the part behind the canopy and fixed the missing cowling paint. I also added the black wing lines to show it as in real life, finally I corrected the tail squares angles.. I hope you enjoy her she is now ready for combat...Salute!

Salute All,

 

I have finished my honorable work for Lt. Dolor A. Martin. I am touched even still after doing my best to find any information on

this heroic pilot from the 360th squadron. The name on the starboard side of the cowling is his son, an nick name I'm guessing.

 

Dolor Martin was a pilot of a Republic P47D Thunderbolt of the 356th Fighter Group of the American Eight Air Force, based in Martlesham Heath, England.  

On November 11th, his unit was tasked to provide support to a withdrawing formation of B-17 bombers that had attacked a marshalling yard near Münster, in Germany. In the

vincinity of Ede, Dolor Martin was engaged in an aerial battle with German fighters and was shot down.   'Stewpot' crashed due to aerial combat with 3 Luftwaffe fighters.  He died for our freedom.

 

I stayed with a clean P-47D with little weather and wear. I felt important to honor the pilot this way.

Thanks Grippen7 for making this suggestion, I hope you honor him with this humble attempt to share in this.

Thanks WWGreyWolfe for your nice repaint.  🙂

 

Photos of this aircraft are perhaps very rare.

So far I have only found a photo of the nose section.

I have a book at home about aircraft crashes during the whole second world war in this area.

See this link to this dutch book about the air war above the dutch town of Ede and it surroundings.

https://www.bduboeken.nl/2014-11-24-08-12-45/oorlog/item/226-luchtoorlog-boven-ede

You can buy the book for around ten Euro's.

Best regards Grippen7


Above Ede a lot took place during the Second World War. 
Aircraft of allied air forces, which flew in large formations towards Germany to carry out bombing, 
were attacked from the ground by German anti-aircraft guns and in the air by the aircraft of the Luftwaffe. 
Around fifty planes crashed in the Gelderse Vallei from both the Allies and the Luftwaffe. 
This book describes sixteen of the allied crashes; their journey, type of aircraft, their purpose, 
the crash itself and its consequences for the often very young crew, 
which also highlights the role of the Edese civilians and the resistance.
On 17 September 1944, however, Ede itself became the target of these allied bombers. 
Three violent bombings took place with far-reaching consequences for the population. 
These bombardments, carried out by Americans and British, were part of the Market Garden operation. 
69 civilians were killed and many injured. Ede was a small community at that time and the consequences 
for the population were enormous.

As a schoolboy, Evert van de Weerd went through the Second World War in Ede. 
The events have left a deep impression. He often wrote several books together with Peter Veldheer and / or Gerjan 
Crebolder about the liberation of the Veluwe, including Ede in Wapenrok.

Author (s): Evert van de Weerd
Number of pages: 204
ISBN: 978-90-8788-099-6

Dear  WWGreyWolfe,

 

With the "Battle of Bodenplatte" extension, we can also fly above the actual crash location in the IL2 simulator.

 

Best regards, Grippen7
