Photo Comment

Built in 1945 in Evansville, Indiana and delivered to the USAAF as 45-49295. Under the terms of the Mutual Assstance Pact she was flown in 1951 to Yugoslavia and subsequently served with the Yugoslav AF as 13064. She never flew with the RAF but is displayed in South East Asia Command markings of No. 30 Sqdn, which operated Thunderbolts between July 1944 and June 1946, when it re-equipped with Tempests.
