Three pristine Jugs up from Farmingdale on a
photo-op sortie late in 1945. These Thunderbolts
delivered too late to see service in WW II, although many of this block
number did go on
to serve in the
Pacific theater. 1,800-odd P-47Ns were built,
although a colossal 5,934 were
when WW II came to an abrupt end in August 1945.
