This Package contains the Following aircraft:

White Flight
- Petie 3rd - Lt. Colonel John C. Meyer (2 kills)
- The Sheepherder - Captain Alex F. Sears (1 kill)

Red Flight

On January 1, 1945, Colonel J.C. Meyer had finally received the reluctant permission to fly a combat patrol. Col. Meyer was one of the few that foresaw Operation Bodenplatte, the last-ditch effort of the Luftwaffe to overcome Allied air superiority. With engines on and waiting for clearance to roll, the Luftwaffe Gruppen I, II, and III of Jagdgeschwader 11 began hitting parked P-47's at the other end of the runway. That was all the permission Meyer needed and he immediately gave the command to roll.

Before his wheels were up he pulled the trigger as a FW-190 crossed in front of him, sending the first casualty of Jagdgeschwader 11 into the ground. In the next 30 minutes, the 352nd's 487th Fighter Squadron shot down 24 German aircraft and lost none. For their actions, the 487th was the only fighter squadron to receive the Distinguished Unit Citation in the European Theater of Operations in WWII.
