This month, a little later than planned, due both to the amount of activity on the website and in the Museum, we are publishing the fifth of these Newsletters, which chronicle the progress of the American 367th Fighter Group, through training and combat in WWII. Hopefully, you will have read the previous four Newsletters, which describe the Group’s training in California on the P-39, and the initial difficulties and operations in England, flying the P-38 Lightning, and so will be familiar with Olivier’s format and style.
This issue covers the momentous period around D-Day in June 1944, with a detailed log of the missions flown during early June 1944, all flown from Stoney Cross. In addition, there are several previously unpublished photographs and some photos of US pre-war training aircraft.
