Photos that might stir some memories of the USAAF days


No doubt Willy's Jeeps would have been seen at MH, this one at Ipswich Wetdock on Sunday

Thanks John

halfway down the page is a video of Bill's Squadron of Mustangs taking off and some of him walking out on to the Tarmac. His P51 was called Jackie with nose art of a Coyote. Bill was well known for flying with his pet coyote "Jeep" in the ****pit of his Thunderbolt.
There is page on the MH website about him
