EagleCals #148 P-61A Black Widows
In March 1944 the men of the 422nd NFS departed Florida destined for England. On 23 May 1944 the first P-61 arrived at their base at Scorton. After a period of training in their new nightfighter, the 422nd NFS became operational shortly after D-Day. By the end of hostilities, just under one year later, the 422nd NFS had claimed 43 aircraft and 5 V-1s as destroyed. This decal sheet identifies three of their aircraft.
