#00190 A now world famous set of photographs, these are iconic images of the 361st FG, led by Lt.Col. Thomas J. J. Christian. The Group Commanding Officer is front in P-51D 44-13410 E2-C "Lou IV". Lt.Col. Christian was killed in action on 12 August 1944, shortly after this photo was taken. Known as "The Bottisham Four", this shot from the well known series of colour photos of the flight from the 375th Fighter Squadron is one of the the main sources of evidence used for the argument of blue topsides to the a/c. From all of the articles and arguments the 361st Crew Chiefs always laughed when asked, say "We never had any blue painted a/c in the 361st". You can make your own mind up if these superb photo's. Other a/c pictured are 44-13926 E2-S of Lt. Abe P. Rosenberger but said to be flown on this occasion by Lt. Urban L Drew; 44-13568 E2-A "Sky Bouncer" of Capt. Bruce W.

#00199 The 19thBG in 1952 was not only one of the most colorful medium bomber groups ever to serve, but was the only unit to serve that was under the umbrella of SAC (Strategic Air Command). That the 19th was NOT in SAC made it special....a 'Ragamuffin' outfit on the far end and outside of the SAC supply chain, with apparent low priority for access to anything, particularly uniforms and flight gear such as flight Jackets, flying fatigues ( those cool suits with all the zippered pockets), and aircraft maintenance equipment and spare parts. This aircraft adorns the unit insignia as its nose-art, with Groups moto 'In Alis Vinicimus' or "On Wings We Conquer".
#00200 4 red nosed jets in formation. FJ-4 Furies of VMA-323 "Death Rattlers."
