    Good find, Jank. It's got P-51 reports too. What a wealth of information! It's just tons and tons of dogfights written down, it would be easy to burn a few hours just browsing. It's got some pilots' names as well, I saw some of Francis Gabreski's reports.

    Mike Williams continues to publish a wide range of quality research references..

    The above encounter report is a fight between Walter Gresham and in all probability Egon Mayer.

    I have the combat film and it matches the description of Mayer's wingman (left wing blown off in a deflection shot and going into an unrecoverable spin to his death)

    His site has a variety of 51 encounter reports as well as history of Scouting Force, Fighter Performance tests, etc.

    yes but more like a big, big thank you to member of the forums Mike Williams for offering up these items from his data base to us.

    note the 4 kills by ace of the 78th f.g. Robert Green
