Check out our entire line… Regular Edition of 1250. Overall size: 30″ x 24″. S/N by the Artist – Roy Grinnell and. P-51 Mustang and Me-262. In June 1944 the first examples of Hitler’s revolutionary jet fighter, the Messerschmitt 262, began to appear over the skies of Germany. Almost 100 miles-per-hour faster than the fastest Allied prop-driven fighters; the twin-engine German jet was a formidable adversary. However, with a combination of skill and luck, Allied pilots managed to down several dozen of the Luftwaffe’s new fighter. The 357th Fighter Group alone was credited with destroying 18 + Me-262s, the highest number recorded by any group in the Eighth Air Force. Flying his P-51D on a fighter sweep over Germany on 6 November 1944, Captain Charles E. “Chuck” Yeager, of the 357th’s 363rd Fighter Squadron, scored the group’s first jet victory. As he described the event in his combat report, I spotted a 262 approaching the field from the south at 500 feet. He was going very slow around 200 m. I split S-ed on it and was going around 500 M. Flak started coming up very thick and accurate. I fired a short burst from around 400 yards and got hits on the wings. Had to break off at 300 yards because the flak was getting too close… Looking back I saw the jet E/A crash-land about 400 yards short of the field in a wooded field. A wing flew off outside the right jet unit. The plane did not burn. It is printed on Acid Neutral paper and will arrive in perfect shape. MULTIPLE ORDERS WILL BE CHARGED THE HIGHEST QUOTED RATE.
