Last Ace of World War Two

The 24″ x 36″ two-view print below is a rendering of the P-47N of 20th Air Force hero 1st Lt. Oscar Perdomo of El Paso, Texas, the final World War Two pilot to make “ace,” shooting down five Japanese aircraft in one day, right before the end of the war.  The name “Lil’ Meatie” and the cartoon refer to Perdomo’s son. This late-model Thunderbolt had both its wingspan and the track of its landing gear expanded, allowing for additional fuel tankage within the wings, a first for the P-47.
