On February 10, 1945 four P-51 Mustangs with Louis Curdes "Bad Angel" and Schmidtke along with LaCroix and Scalley, were returning from an escort mission. LaCroix and Scalley flew over a Japanese airstrip and began to attack but LaCroix was shot down and landed in the ocean and survived. Curdes circled the down pilot when he spotted a C-47 heading for the same island and fate. To keep that from happening Curdes shot the C-47 down. It landed on the water and all of the passengers survived. Curdes later married a nurse that was on the C-47.Opening canopy

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.
