    This is Part 1 of a Two-Part Documentary detailing the story of the 325th Fighter Group "The Checkertail Clan" who fought in the Mediterranean Theatre of Operations.

    This has taken 3-years of research, which has included the discovery of new, never before seen footage and photos supplied by the surviving members of the now Legendary Fighter Group.

    Created using WW2 footage, archive photos, the footage and pictures detailed above, as-well as interviews filmed in the US with surviving Veterans, this is Part 1 of a comprehensive history detailing the exploits of "The Checkertail Clan".

    A good history although they could have done away with the gun camera footage of the Spitfire and Hurricane being shot down. I think I even saw something that looked like an F9F Panther taking hits.

    Thanks for posting.
