A P-47D Thunderbolt of the 78th Fighter Group as it might have appeared
just after D-Day. This aircraft sports full "invasion stripes"
and the 78th's checkered engine cowling which is adorned with this artist's
fanciful "Varga-style" nose art. Loaded with a 105 gallon drop
tank, she is ready to take off on another mission.
