Fighter Units & Pilots of the 8th Air Force

Hi,

I would like to ask if anybody has following book


Miller, Kent D. Fighter Units & Pilots of the 8th Air Force: September 1942 - May 1945, two volumes. Atglen, PA: Schiffer Military History, 2001

and can check for me if there is any info about Capt. J. O. Ruscitto, 350th FS, 353rd FG.

If yes, would be possible to copy or rewrite this info?

I suppose he claimes approx 3 victories and also on 18 Sept 44 he was shot down and evaded.

TIA

Pavel

Re: Fighter Units & Pilots of the 8th Air Force

Hi Pavel, I have both volumes of this book. The entries for Capt James O Ruscitto are:
Claims (all in P-47)
June 12, 1944 - Me 109 Dreux (destroyed)
Me 109 Dreux (damaged)
June 30 Me 109 West of Chalons (probable)
August 4 Me 109 Wendorf (damaged)
August 11 Me 109 Maraville (maybe this was Merville?) (destroyed on ground)

August 28 Two Me 110 Wavre (both destroyed)

On September 18 1944, he was hit by flak and bellied in near Tilburg. P-47D LH-R 42-28357 "Natalie Ann II"
