I put this to documentary together from silent, unedited archival film. Really exciting P-47 Thunderbolt action from the skies over Germany, Spring, 1945..
Col. Ray J Stecker leads the men of the 386th, 387th, and 388th Fighter Squadrons into action. Watch extensive color footage of the 365th Thunderbolts in their forward bases in France and Belgium and exciting air-to- air and air-to-ground attacks, including rare gun camera film of the shoot down of a Messerschmidt Me 262 jet fighter! As an added bonus, there's rare color footage of "Operation Varsity," the Allied airborne assault across the Rhine, which was escorted by the 365th. No escorted aircraft were lost.
