Default RE: TF GS P47 Build - yeah another bloody one!!

According to a book I have, Eagles of Duxford, MX-X was named "No Guts No Glory" and not "Eye Candy". The plane belonged to the 82 FS and was piloted by Maj. Benjamin I. Mayo who was also the acting CO during June-Sept of 1944. Maj Mayo was also with the 84FS flying "No Guts No Glory" in the plane WZ-V.. The 78 FG was made up of the 82, 83 and 84 FS and all had the Checkered cowl starting around April of 1944. Many planes of the planes were not adorned with nose art like some P-47's of other FG's. Hope this helps.
