P.J. Dahl and his P-38 were part of the 475th Fighter Group, sometimes called a “supergroup” because of the number of Japanese aircraft the group is credited with shooting down. The highest scoring U.S. ace in World War II, Richard Bong, flew with the 475th. In 2005, the 475th Fighter Group Association donated its memorabilia to the Planes of Fame Air Museum, which acquired a hangar for the collection, highlighted by the museum’s Lockheed P-38J.
