During the Winter of 1944-45, the skies over Germany were filled with aircraft on 'Ramrod' missions, a term used for long range bomber strikes with fighter escort. The P-51 Mustang, considered by many to have been the finest fighter of the war, was the preferred weapon of most American fighter pilots, and certainly a welcome sight to the bomber crews.
Pictured here is the famed triple Ace Bud Anderson in his Mustang "Old Crow", defending B-17s of the 100th Bomb Group during the final days of his WWII combat tour.
