P-47 ‘Spirit of Atlantic City” was flown by one of the 56th Fighter Group’s leading aces –Major Walker Maharin. The ‘Wolfpacks’ P-47 were given white nose colouring to identify them as friendly aircraft as they did bear a certain resemblance to the German Fw190s and had been mistaken for them by several over-zealous air gunners. Major Maharin was shot down in March 1944, but evaded capture and was picked up by a RAF Lysander on the night of 6/7 May having been hidden by the French resistance for almost six weeks. Major Maharin eventually returned to the USA and would later serve in the Pacific and in the Korean War where he was taken prisoner.
