This should be on the Allied Board? It is assumed Edmann mistook a P-47 for a Spitfire (!). 3 claimed, two lost I believe

Both planes (P-47 and Spitfire) had elliptical wings so they could be mistaken for each other. Only three fighter aircraft of WWII had the Elliptical wing, the Spitfire, the P-47 and the He 280.
