    Hi Mark,
    Have you ever thought of producing a book on 131 squadron?
    I have a lot of material and photographs of the squadron covering the war.
    I had thought of doing something myself when I retired but have been told that i will need to work an extra 10 years before I can retire now.

    Mark____ I was a control tower operator at Republic Aviation when the P-47 was flown in from California to be restored. The photo is from the Paris airshow and is being flown by Glenn Bach, a former test pilot for Republic. Republic had closed down due to labor problems.
    After the airplane was restored, it was flown many times at Republic by Glenn. He was the only pilot allowed to fly it because he was the only active pilot at Republic with prior experience in the bird. He had flown the P-47 in France during WW2.

    Peter, Happened to drop in the forum after a really loong time - your post about No.8 Squadron "disbanding" at Hmwabi caught my eye - did they really? ORB clearly states that the air party of 17 Spitfires and 1 Harvard took off from Mingaladon, reached Baigachi via Akyab. And this was in January 1946..
