    Nice pics! One of my favorite Allied planes of WWII. Easily my favorite "heavy/night" fighter of WWII.

    Mike does have a point, the P-63 was the modified version of the P-39 Airacobra...perhaps a Mod can fix the thread's title?

    the first couple pics the 422nd nfs were intercepting V-1's or tried to. they and the 425th nfs based in Eng;land. I knew CO of the 425th nfs in a lower pic of Gilly Lewis. he lived about 150 miles to my north had a very extensive interview with him and his beautiful daughter. when the US night fighter association was going I was a member the last 5 years of the organi9zation and had the privileged of getting to know about 12 or so members 3-4 livi9ng in my area all deceased now.....
