Pistol Packing Mamma
P-47D-20-RE 42-25274

79th Fighter Group, 85th Fighter Squadron



Pistol Packing Mamma
The 79th Fighter Group re-equipped with P47 Thunderbolts to replace their out-dated Warhawks. This one was assigned to Capt Richard Long.

Note in addition to its title "Pistol Packing Mamma" spelt with a double "m" the artist has also added two small Vargas pin up girls. These look to have been cut from the Esquire magazine and pasted on to the fuselage.
