Re: John Landers and "Texas Longhorn"

Perhaps it shows the claims of several pilots? I am leaning towards Landers making five claims in his April combat but it would depend on how long it took for the revised confirmations to come in. It does seem to me that the group IO would have made the decision quickly but without the combat report I cannot confirm if he was awarded two or five. It could also mean that his initial kills were all claimed in "Texas Longhorn" and none in "Skeeter", but I confess the fact that he was flying another aircraft in his last combat surprises me.
