Certainly many of Frisky’s P-47 Pilots could be said to have been “working on the railroad” during the Second World War. Evidence of this can be found in gun camera film clips now available for view, or even purchase if one wishes, at the Critical Past website.
The clip below is that of 406th Fighter Squadron (code named Yearling) P-47 pilot Lieutenant D. Neale, and was taken on 21 February 1945. Other related 371st Fighter Group gun camera film clips for the 406th, as well as the 405th and 404th, are available for view on this website. Although without any accompanying sound, these gun camera film clips do give some insight and perspective on the hazardous low-level strafing attacks carried out by Frisky’s pilots in the European Theater of Operations.
