The Republic Aviation P-47 “Thunderbolt” entered service in May 1942 with the introduction of the P-47B. It had a “Razorback”, a high dorsal spine behind the side-ways opening canopy that reduced visibility. As improvements were made a “D” variant was produced with 12,602 being manufactured. The British developed a sliding bubble canopy for their Typhoon and this was adopted by the USAAF starting with the P-47D-5. With its ability to survive enemy fire along with impressive armament and bomb load the P-47 excelled at ground attack roles.

Spiros Nicholas Pisanos (Pissanos) was born in Greece and arrived in America in 1938 settling in Plainfield, New Jersey, found work and took flying lessons. In October 1941 he joined the RAF and was assigned to the 268th FS but later transferred to the 71 Eagle Squadron flying Spitfires. In October 1942 he transferred to the 334th FS/4th FG USAAF and scored his first victory on May 21, 1943 flying P-47 “Miss Plainfield”. In March 1944 “The Flying Greek” Pisanos scored his 10th victory in a P-51.
