    Just out curiosity, did any FG (or pilot) ever fly three different fighters in combat like P-47/P-38/P-51 or anything like that?
    I can imagine that the Eagle Squadrons probably did with Spitfire/?/?.....

    The 4th Fighter Group transferred from the three Eagle Squadrons of the RAF to the 8th USAAF, still equipped with the Spitfire MkV. They re-equipped with the P-47, then got the P-51 in 1944.
    All 8th AF P-47 Groups in ETO re-equipped with the P-51 by January 1945, except the 56th FG, as did some P-38 Groups, such as 20th FG.

    325th FG (Checkertail Clan) flew P-40s, P-47s and P-51s throughout the war.

    Been thinking of doing something like that, for a group or a pilot, Hagerstrom started it, being one of very few aces in two wars, P-40 and F-86....

    I would imagine a number of US Marine groups did, IIRC there were a few that flew the Buffalo/Wildcat/Corsair in combat.
