  • The victim of its image was the Mustang and the Corsair.. However the milk jug was the Flying tank. It was the largest single-seat Fighter produced during World War II and was completely American made unlike the Mustang with the Merlin engine.

  • Just less than half of them were built in Evansville Indiana, where I used to live. Apparently one of them is now on display at the Evansville wartime Museum. Evansville was also a major manufacturer of Landing ship tanks, or LST's. LST325 is docked there and can be toured. It's truly amazing how this entire country came together then, and it is a shame to see us so divided now.

  • My grandfather was a p47 ground chief in the 8th Air Corps. He told me that on the second day after DDay, he had landed at Omaha and was building the airfield within hours. He said they were receiving P47 within days, but he did say that was the most exhausting thing he ever did so time probably had no meaning to him. RIP PeeWee.

  • Anyone who thinks the P47 Thunderbolt wasn't one of the greatest planes ever built is completely ignorant about the subject. In fact, I would question their fitness to reproduce and operate a motor vehicle.

  • (Last Letter - Mourmelon Le Grand France) Oct. 3, 1944 France Dear Ma, I still have been getting mail right along, which is swell with me. There’s nothing like getting mail. Well, I guess I sort of resigned myself to staying here for the winter. For awhile it looked as if we could have it over with by Christmas but I guess not now. It seems to me that the fighting is getting more vigorous. I hope I’m wrong but that’s how it looks to me. Say Ma, how is Don coming along with his draft board? I sure hope he doesn’t have to go. I think it would be a little rough on him and his family. Anyway he wouldn’t like war. It’s not what it’s cracked up to be. I know too much shooting going on. I guess being where I am I should have a lot to write about but I just can’t think of anything, although I suppose when I come home I’ll have a lot to tell. A lot goes on up in that “wild blue yonder”. It’s getting late now ma, and I’m tired. I’m going to quit now and get some sleep Give my love to the family and tell Gene that I got some Jerries just for him Love Phil. Mourmele Le Grand France Oct, 1, 1944 France Dear Doris, I got a little time so I guess I’ll get off a quick letter. Well, regardless of what the papers might say, I’m prepared to spend a nice cold winter in France. The fighting has been hot and heavy lately, and I’m ready to throw in the towel. We are whipping them though. I got the Air Medal with one oak leaf cluster and I hope to get more. The only one I don’t want is the Purple Heart. Maybe I’ll get that also. Had plenty close calls. When I come home, if anyone yells “Flak” in my ear they’re a dead duck. I must have only peace and quiet. We had a USO show here last night. Five performers, 3 men and 2 girls. What I want to know is where the hell are all these big shows at? Probably back in the states for the benefit of the pencil pushers. Well kid, I’ve griped enough, so for now Au Revoir. Love Phil (Moved to Mourmelon le Grand, Near Reims on Sept. 22nd) Sept 24, 1944 France Dear Ma, Well, here we are at a different field again, which makes the 4th one since I’ve been in France. We are getting closer and closer. I think that this is the best field so far. We have nice barracks instead of tents! The Lufturaffe (sic) was here before us but we kicked them out and took over. Winter is starting to roll in now and the days are dreary. It always reminds me of home. Just about this time we would be starting to play football. I suppose back home now, everybody is getting ready for peace, but the hardest fighting is going on. The fight for Germany. I only hope that it will be over before real winter sets in. Say Ma, I’ve got some nice perfume from Paris, It’s one of best called -Evening in Paris- as soon as I get something to mail it in, I’m going to send it to you. Well, Ma, give my love to the family, Phil St. Lenard near LeMans Sept 18, 1944 France Dear Doris, Just a short letter to tell you that I’ve been receiving your letters and thanks. It really feels good to get mail over here. It’s a good morale builder. How are you coming along with the piano? I hope you are still taking lessons cause you have a lot of playing to do when I come home. Roger? I’d like you to keep on for at least 4 more months. That’s an order. I won’t be able to fight good, if I thought I couldn’t get to listen to your play and drink beer in the morning. Well Doris, I haven’t time to make the letter any longer so be good and I’ll try to get some more Jerries for you. Love Phil St. Lenard Sept 18, 1944 France Dear Ma, I’m still getting mail regularly which is good. If you want to send me anything send socks, underwear, ciggarettes, & toothpaste. These are some articles I need. But I don’t think it will last till Christmas. I just got through listening to “Axis Sally” on the radio. I don’t know if you have ever heard of her. She is a German girl who broadcasts to U.S. soldiers from Berlin. She talks in a low sweet voice and plays American records. Sweet & all. She tries to make us homesick. She says we are young boys who don’t know how to fight, but just like to play. Well, all I can say is somebody is beating the hell out of Germany. We all enjoy her. Well, ma, I’ll close for now. In my next letter, I’ll try to send some pictures. Love to all Phil St. Lenard France Sept 14 1944 France Dear Ma, I’ve been getting quite a few letters lately, so I guess the delay is over. Lately I’ve had a chance to visit a few towns. In my opinion, France is a wonderful country. England can’t hold a candle to France. These people can’t do enough for the Yanks. They practilly swarm all over you. Even so, I’d like for this war to be over and we can all come home. I suppose the news does sound good to the people back home but we are still fighting like hell over here and when I get back, I just want to sleep and eat. Let the bar room commandos tell of their experiences fighting the battle of “Joe’s Place”. Ma, don’t send me anything cause there’s nothing that I need. Thanks anyway. Give my love to all Phil Moved to St. Lenard near Le Mans Sept 4-21st Sept 6, 1944 France Dear Ma I’ve been getting mail right along now and I think that I’ve got all that were overdue. So you think Cliffy washed out? That’s too bad but it’s no reason for his father to say what he did to Mrs. Jackson. You know, I got the Air Medal and as soon as the medal is given me, I’ll send it to you, and you can show him. I’m not getting it from sitting around either. Say ma, speaking of coincidences, the other day we flew a mission to a certain town and just before we took off, I learned that it was to be a dive bombing mission to help a certain outfit. The ones we helped were my old infantry outfit. I wish I could have let them know. I guess by now you’ve hear that the Yanks are in Germany. I certainly hope the war doesn’t last too much longer. I don’t think it will. Well ma, say hello to the family. Love Phil Letter written Aug 24-26? Mailed 26th Cretleville Dear Ma, I received a couple of letters from you & Don. We’ve got the day off today so I’ll just write a short letter to say that everything is ok Of course I can imagine everybody getting optimistic about the war about now. They are even laying bets on when it will be over. For my part it can end anytime now. The Hell with medals. Well, I’ve seen a lot of Germans and they are fighting men. I guess I’ve even killed a few. Yesterday I flew protection for my old outfit, while they were attacking B---- I was wondering if Larry was down there. That’s quite a coincidence. I hope I can get to see them. Well ma, just have faith and don’t worry. Love to all Phil Moved Aug 15 1944 to Cretteville-near Carenton The day before his operations officer, Maj Shurls shot down Aug 20, 1944 France Dear Ma, Well another day is almost over and I thought I’d write you another letter before it gets dark. We have moved to another field. See, as the infantry captures airfields closer to Germany, we then move there so we don’t have as far to fly. There is a loud speaker set up in the field near my tent and some pretty good music is on. I don’t get to hear much music. I also have 3 eggs, but nothing to cook them in. All pilots get 3 eggs a week. I ought to be getting the Air Medal soon. Just a couple more missions. I’ve been over Paris a few times already. I was over Paris today and some British spitfires mistook us for Jerry, and we did the same. I almost shot one down. It sure was funny, but everything turned out o.k. Well, ma, I hope it won’t last much longer. The Yanks are doing a super human job, and if the people back home will only work, the job will be done. Maybe they should see some of the boys sprawled on the ground, deader than hell. The first time I saw a dead Yank, in a little town, just being captured, I darn near bawled. Then I saw a smashed up Jerry and felt better. Those Ba….ds are going to pay. Well, ma, I’m going to send 2 or 3 hundred dollars more to bank for me. It ought to be there in a month or six weeks. I’m going to have a time when I get back. Please don’t worry about me, and say hello to the family. Love Phil

    • On 4 October 1944 Thunderbolts of American 406 FG (513 FS), stationed at Mourmelon-le-Grand in France, had orders to attack the marshalling yards at Landau in the Palatinate. At about 17 hrs the formation encountered heavy flak fire and tried to regroup after that. During this action Fillipo Antonucci got lost with his plane “Scarsdale Hobo”, most probably due to flak fire. The aircraft crashed at about 17.40 hrs in Lisdorf-Holzmühle, 50 yards from the home of Alois Klein. Antonucci was hurled out of his plane during the explosion that took place on impact and landed directly in front of Klein’s house. His body was rather mutiliated and burned, the head was missing. Parts of the body were discovered near the wreckage. Two live bombs were discovered 20 yards from the crash site. Antonucci was buried on the Garrison Cemetery at Saarlouis. As English inscriptions had been found on parts of the wreckage and because of the many body parts it looked as it had been two fliers and the grave was erroneously marked with “Two English fliers”. After the war Antonucci could be identified without any doubt after an exhumation and was transferred into his home state of Connecticut in the USA where he now rests on the soldiers’ field in the town of Wilson.

  • Love the T-Bolts. Have a quarter scale 4 stroke hanging in the rafters with the Normandy invasion stripes. A excellent flyer, and had to belly land it once. No damage,,just skinned paint. P-51 Mustang was also a absolute pig until you got rid of all the extra weight. The Juggers could carry that extra weight and still put on a very good show.

  • The P-47 was a great aircraft, but comparing the P-47 and P-51 is a apple's and orange kind of thing. The P-47 was a good fighter, but the reason it was always on ground attack duty is it could not escort the bombers all the way. It doesn't matter how Amazing a aircraft is in a fight, if it doesn't have enough fuel to get to the fight. The P-51 did, It could go all the way and help stop the extreme loss in bombers and crew. So it got a lot of fame and love from the bomber crews.

  • Not interested, i've seen already a comparison done by Gregs Airplanes and Automobiles. He does do his research very meticulously. With all original power at altitude charts, compulsory manifold pressures and so on. If there is a discussion on a topic he says so. I do not regard you very high as an engineer, probably you're a good media man.

  • While the P47 was not the best fighter, it probably led the field in the increasingly important ground attack role where heavy firepower and survivability against ground fire were paramount. It was a precursor of the fighter bombers of today.

  • "During World War II, the city of Evansville manufactured vast amounts of armaments that were vital to the Allied victory. The Evansville Ordnance Plant made 96 percent of all .45-caliber ammunition used in the war, while the Republic Aviation Plant produced more than 6,500 P-47 Thunderbolts - almost half of all P-47s built during the war. At its peak, the local shipyard employed upward of eighteen thousand men and women who forged 167 of the iconic Landing Ship Tank vessels. In this captivating and fast-paced account, University of Evansville historian James Lachlan MacLeod reveals the enormous influence these wartime industries had on the social, economic and cultural life of the city."

  • When I was growing up and from the 7th grade on, I must have read EVERY BOOK on US Army Aviation! I also read just about EVERYTHING on US Navy Aviation AND EVERY Important and Significant battle there was! I turned 12 in June of 1969. By the time I was 13 or 14, it was decided, the aircraft that I would want to fly in WWII would have been, hand's down, the "CHUNKY", P-47 ! She could take a lickn' but keep on tickn'! My favorite! Now, I'm "JUST" a retired, A&P Mechanic That's a Licensed Aircraft Mechanic's Credential's, here in the USA. Take my word for it, without the P-47, the war in Europe would have been noticibly longer! I would easily believe 35% of you subscribers don't agree. I thought it would be even more than that! You 35% need to get READING!

  • Back in the day, they called that system a "turbosupercharger". But in more modern terms, that is a contradiction, it's either a turbocharger if the compressor is driven by an exhaust gas turbine, or a supercharger if the compressor is gear driven directly off the engine's crankshaft. This was a turbocharger. The water infection added almost 200hp. I also thought it was interesting that the older "razorbacck" fuselage version of this plane was 5 knots faster than the later bubble canopy versions, as they were more aerodynamic, but this was something the pilots were more than willing to trade off for the ability to see behind them.

  • Ok I play war thunder a military online action game and the P-47 has good armament yes but it has a slow rate or climb and dose have a good engine but it’s heavy for a plane and slows it down the P-51 has a greater max speed that it

  • What is the definition of a supercharger? To me it clearly looks like a turbocharger, exhaust is used to run an air compressor and feed more air to the engine. I think that a supercharger is a device directly connected to the engine with a belt or something else maybe that runs the compressor.

  • Most of the horsepower increase from water injection is from the higher allowable manifold pressure due to the the mixture acting as anti-detonant. The mixture is injected into the engine but then that is also supplemented with opening the throttle more to let in more air. Using water injection the P-47 upped its max allowable manifold pressure from 52" Hg (2000 horsepower) to 56"Hg (2300 horsepower). Later on when 150 octane fuel was introduced that manifold pressure could be upped even higher to 70" Hg (2700 horsepower) with water injection or 65" Hg (2600 horsepower) without.

  • Not to mention their role as close air support. The Escuadron 201 of the Mexican Air Force used the P47D to great effect in the Philippines, even in a dive bomber mission (which the plane was definitely NOT designed for). They destroyed a number of Japanese convoys and other ground targets, and if memory is correct naval targets in port.

  • It had the highest survival rate for its pilots so that is more than good enough for me to think/ believe it was/is hands down the best ww2 single-engine fighter for the allies, at the very least. It also had a kill rate second only to the corsair (I think I've heard 9 to 1 while corsair, I believe, was 11 to 1) but it was still faster than the corsair and had a better survival rate. I don't like the bubble canopy because from what i've heard/seen in documentaries, it was not made with 'bulletproof' glass. I could be wrong about that, if I am then i'll take the bubble canopy. I have heard conflicting info about which plane was produced in the highest numbers... i've heard that it was the p-47 but i've also heard it was the corsair so I don't know which.

  • I have one question. When they developed these engines why did they refer to them as supercharged? As I understand it superchargers are belt or gear driven and turbochargers are driven off of exhaust gases, if someone could explain to me why they used this certain terminology thatd be cool I'd like to learn as much as I can

  • As I was watching this and got to the part where you were defining a meter, it occurred to me that all of our measurements rely on things we call constant. Perhaps I am misunderstanding something within basic physics, but all of this makes the assumption that time is also a constant. It is not. We know gravity effects time. We know that at a quantum level, we can observe "the effect" prior to "the cause". We know from Heisenberg that as we more precisely measure the position of a particle, measurements of velocity (or angular moment) becomes increasingly imprecise. So, if time is not constant... then neither is the speed of light, because "speed" relies on time to measure. Would this not perhaps account for the missing mass and energy in the universe? Perhaps a reason to take another look at the spooky dark matter debate? I realize I am probably wrong, so what am I missing here?

  • Does 'range' include return to starting point?

  • The P-47 having a radial engine meaning that ground fire could hit it and it would run with bullet holes in it, Where as the Spit and Mustang would go down. I spoke many years ago to a WW2 pilot that went from a Mustang to a Thunderbolt he said that the Tbolt save his life because it was a tougher plane

  • I thought this was going to be about when you turn 47 and you have to pee a lot

  • There was an incident that amazed German soldiers commented about after the war and the AAF had the gun film to back it up. Some P-47's were flying low thru an industrial area dropping bombs with one clipping a tall brick smokestack with a wing. The impact tore off 6 feet of the wing but the P-47 kept flying and circled around to take another crack at the target. It dropped it's bomb load and flew back to the airfield.
