Foo Fighter 

 

 "He had heard about these Foo Fighters but he thought they were just stories and yet there was one popping out of the clouds just ahead of him. He went in for a closer look and the strange looking airplane looked harmless so he decided to buzz it with his P-51 Mustang and as he did he gave the startled pilot a little wink and a smile. Silly Foo Fighter!"

 

  The North American P-51 Mustang was an American long-range single-seat fighter aircraft that entered service with Allied air forces in the middle years of World War II. The P-51 became one of the conflict's most successful and recognizable aircraft. The P-51 flew most of its wartime missions as a bomber escort in raids over Germany, helping ensure Allied air superiority from early 1944. It also saw service against the Japanese in the Pacific War. The P-51 also fought in the Korean War and the plane was so rugged that the last operational squadron was not decommissioned by the Dominican Republic until 1984.

 

  The term 'Foo Fighter' was used by Allied aircraft pilots in World War II to describe various UFOs or mysterious aerial phenomena seen in the skies over Europe and the Pacific theatre. Contemporary witnesses often assumed that the 'Foo Fighters' were secret weapons employed by the enemy, and it was not until after the war that it was discovered neither side had anything to do with them. Despite these fears, foo fighters (whatever they might have been) were apparently never reported to have harmed or tried to harm anyone.

 

Okinawa-T's is proud to offer this high quality piece of wearable aviation art showing a P-51 Mustang having a little fun at the expense of a Foo Fighter.
