Re: Identity of F-5 Lightning crashed on take off Vis Island -March/April 44

Indeed on April 13,44 the target way Gyor second of and to my knowledge the 1st FG
didn't operate F-5's the recon version which operated by 5th PRG eventually few more
operated also by 82nd FG . I therefore believe that the P-38 in question was part of an
escort rather recon asset . If the report is true the flammed out engine may have
caused asymethric trust on take off thuse causing a VMCA leading to a take off stall
followed by crash possibly do to inability of the pilot to handle VMCA at low altitude.
