Lieutenant George Brooks - 13 August 1944

Hello

Lieutenant George Brooks of the 382nd FS, 363rd FG, USAAF claimed a victory against 4./JG 26 before he was shot down in aerial combat by Leutnant Joachim Günther (11 victories, killed in action 24 February 1945) on 13 August 1944. Does anyone have the serial number of the P-51 that he was flying on that occasion?

Horrido!

Leo

Hello Peter

Many thanks for your kind help! He was flying as wingman to 1/Lt Lee Webster who claimed three victories in the engagement before more German fighters intervened. He was able to evade capture and returned to combat in November 1944.

Horrido!

Leo
