In March 1943 Raymond S Wetmore was assigned to the USAAF 359th Fighter Group that went to England in October. February and March 1944 saw Wetmore score his first 4.5 victories flying a P-47 before switching to the P-51 Mustang. At only 20 years of age Wetmore became an ACE with two victories on May 19th when he downed two Me-109s. By the end of 1944 Wetmore had 15 victories and was flying the P-51 “Daddy’s Girl”. His final victory came on March 15, 1945 by shooting down a rocket powered Me-163 bringing his total to 21.25 aircraft.

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.
