FORGE94 US Army G5 departed Frank Gabreski/Stanley Airport east Long Island after a ground stop-prior stop at Burlington, VT

Mr. Gabreski has a berry interdasting past.

On July 5th, 1944 Francis Gabreski shot down his 28th German plane. With the victory, Gabreski became America’s leading ace in Europe and the country’s newest celebrity. The War Department, eager to take advantage of his newfound notoriety, immediately made arrangements to have the pilot shipped home so he could help sell war bonds. Just as Gabreski was about to leave, however, he decided to fly one more mission. The final flight turned disastrous when his plane crashed near Koblenz, Germany and the Nazis captured him. Gabreski soon realized that the Americans weren’t the only ones anticipating his arrival. “We’ve been expecting you for a long time,” a Nazi interrogator told him, as he handed Gabreski a copy of a military newspaper that documented the pilot’s historic 28th kill.
