Description: This wonderful color shot is of Lt. Cameron M 'Cam' Hart's P47D - Designation 'UN-B' - serial 42-26299, 56th FG - 63FS taxiing out at Boxted. England. The aircraft was a 'hand me down' from a Lt. Becker who transferred. It was not unusual for variations of the squadron insignia to be used for nose art, as can be seen on Hart's Thunderbolt. Though the plane was not specifically named, it had a great piece of noseart with a Panthers head with Nazi fighters in its jaws! This colorful Thunderbolt was lost Nov 1944. ** Cameron Hart's 63rd Fighter Squadron P-47D warms up in the foreground as the 56th Fighter Group lines up for takeoff from Boxted, England, in late 1944. It was not unusual for variations of the squadron insignia to be used for nose art, as can be seen on Hart's Thunderbolt. (JE)
