Historical Update

Author: wpypes from North Liberty, IA

I was searching for information on the 511th Fighter Squadron and found this episode of 12 O'Clock High. I loved this series when I was a kid. My cousin served in the 511th FS in WWII and was killed in action on July 30, 1944, while attacking German ground troops near Vire, France. The show portrays the 511th as a P-51 squadron but it was a P-47 Thunderbolt squadron throughout the war. I would love to see the series again. The 511th shipped to England in December 1943, and was stationed at Christchurch, England. It began combat operations in March 1944 and moved to France at the end of June 1944. It was part of the 9th Tactical Air Force, whose main responsibility was direct support of ground troops. Most of the B-17's in the European theater were part of the 8th Air Force, which was assigned the strategic bombing mission.
