A recent post from my REPUBLIC P-47 THUNDERBOLT collection. This is a nice color photo or colorized photo ( not sure which) of a P-47D “Razorback” Thunderbolt receiving some special,(possibly staged for the camera),attention from ground crewmen. The aircraft is emblazoned with a pinup art model and is named “In the Mood” which was a popular tune by the Glenn Miller Band. The national insignia is outlined in red which indicates a time period from 1943.
