Ed Fisher was one of only three aces created by the 362nd FG. He claimed five victories flying P-47D razorbacks before gaining his final two kills (both Bf109s) in this machine on August 9, 1944. Despite being officially credited with four Fw 190s and three Bf109s destroyed, the tally carefully painted onto 42-26919 shows four Fw 190s, one Bf109 and two Bf110s, as well as three V1s. . Ed Fisher failed to return from a mission to Elmersdorf in October 1944.

(It appears to have crashed on take-off as the anti-personnel mines are still hanging under the wings, and the twisted blades show the engine was running.) (Colourised by Doug)
