Re: Brewster F2A Buffalo - top US pilots

Good morning Peter,

thanks for checking.
Yes, that might be the reason.
That website indicates that US Buffaloes scored 10 kills:
http://www.warbirdsandairshows.com/a...torieswwii.htm
I've identified 7 of them (all VMF-221): William Humberd (2), Charles Kunz (2), Frances McCarthy (1), Philip White (1), James Neefus (0,5) and Robert Dickey (0,5). These are considered the leading Marine Corps F2A pilots.
Does that mean the 3 missing kills are to be found within the US Navy ?

Cheers,

Michael
