By January 1945, Dunham was the Deputy Group Commander and had 15 victories scored over New Guinea and the Philippines. Dunham took a break back in the U.S. returning to the 348th FG on Le Shima.

The North American Aviation P-51 Mustang was a single-seat World War II fighter aircraft. First flown on October 26, 1940, the P-51 was designed and built in just 117 days. It flew most of its missions as a bomber escort in raids over Germany, helping ensure Allied air superiority from 1944. As well as being economical to produce, the P-51 was a fast and durable aircraft.
