Photo - Republic P-47D Thunderbolt , "Tallahassee Lassie" Information

Description: Manufactured by Republic Aviation in Evansville, Indiana, and delivered to the USAAF on June 27,
1945. It was placed in storage until March, 1948, when it was assigned to an Air National Guard squadron. FHC's Thunderbolt is painted in the colors of the "Tallahassee Lassie," flown by Seattle-born Colonel Ralph C. Jenkins. He led the 510th Fighter Squadron, initially in England and later all the way through Europe to Germany at the end of WWII. Colonel Jenkins may be the pilot who attacked the staff car of Field Marshall Erwin Rommel, wounding the German commander.
