Crew Chief S/Sgt Don Allen sits on the wing of Lt. Clarence L. Boretsky's 4th Fighter Group P-51D Meg. Metal drop tanks have been placed on the ground, ready for installation. As Allen recalled, "There were a few sandbag reventments for parking the 'kites' at Debden but most sat out in the open, some on concrete pads, others on the interlocked metal sheeting. Metal drop tanks were usually ready to go, complete with two little glass elbows on each to provide the 'breakaway' when released from the bomb racks." The plane was later given to 2/Lt. Marvin Arthur, who changed the name to 'Davy Lee'. **
