The Republic Aviation P-47 “Thunderbolt” entered service in May 1942 with the introduction of
the P-47B. It had a “Razorback”, a high dorsal spine behind the side-ways opening canopy that
reduced visibility. As improvements were made a “D” variant was produced with 12,602 being
manufactured. The British developed a sliding bubble canopy for their Typhoon and this was
adopted by the USAAF starting with the P-47D-5. With its ability to survive enemy fire along with
impressive armament and bomb load the P-47 excelled at ground attack roles.


Flying with the 61st FS, 56th FG, 8th AF, out of Halesworth Lt. Col. Francis Gabrseki’s was
assigned his second P-47D HV*A s/n 42-75510 in December 1943 and scored 10 of his 28
victories. On June 27, 1944 Grabreski scored his 27th victory followed by his 28th and final WWII
victory on July 5, 1944. On July 20, 1944 Grabreski flew one last mission and crashed spending
the remainder of the war as a POW. On August 15, 1944 42-75510 piloted by Lt. William Buttner
was lost.
