Re: Only one kill of VF-94

The only information I have on this claim is from the Lexington Action Report, which does not name the pilot. It occurred on Aug 13, 1945, claiming a Jill. When I have time (ho ho) I will have to review the ACA reports of VF-94 to see if the claim is buried in the text of the report, instead of the first page claims list.

Enjoy!

Frank.
