Ernie P is up!
Thank you, Sir. Yeah, that's pretty ugly isn't it? It looks like something built out of all the rejected parts in an airplane junkyard; the pile with the sign that says "Any four parts for $0.50". Anyhow, I enjoyed your question and I hope you enjoy mine. Thanks; Ernie P.

We all know German pilot Adolph Galland wrote a famous book “The First and the Last”. This question is about another pilot; one who can also claim to be The First and the Last.

What warbird aircrew member do I describe?

1. This pilot flew more than 100 combat missions.

2. His first combat mission was very nearly his last.
