This Bubbletop 'Jug' was built at the Republic plant in Evansville, Indiana in the late 1940s and went on to serve with the Peruvian Air Force. It was acquired by the National Museum of the USAF in 1981, where it is on display painted as the P-47D-30 'Five by Five' flown by Col. Joseph Laughlin, commander of the 362nd FG, Ninth Air Force, in early 1945.
