Recommended Posts

I believe that that particular MiG is on display, still in the same markings, in a US museum.

Yea. I visit the Mig everytime I go there since I live near the museum :)

 

I saw a typo, I misspelled the Ace's name. Its McConnel.

I can also recognize 3 pics of what seems to be the wreckage of Guy Bordelon's Corsair: five red stars, VC-3 markings, and darkened roundels for night fighters. Bordelon was the only Allied ace on prop plane, the only Allied night fighter ace, the only US Navy ace, and seemingly the last scoring ace of the War.
