P-47D-25, flown by Capt. Edward F. Jones, 64th FS, 57th FG, Grosseto AB, Italy, Early 1945

Edward Jones christened his Jug after his high school girlfriend 'Jake'. He joined the 64th Fighter Squadron in the late summer of 1944 and completed 76 combat missions by the end of WWII. The scorpion painted in black on the cowling has its roots in the name of the squadron – 'The Black Scorpions'. The squadron aircraft were numbered from 10 to 39. The yellow stripes on the wings and tail were typical for P-47Ds flown by the 57th Fighter Group.
