A P-47 with Razorback Canopy

Subject

A P-47 with the Razorback canopy was flown by the 362nd Fighter Group until late 1944.

Description

The original versions of the P-47 that were sent to the 362nd Fighter Group had the Razorback canopy. Pilots of the 362nd credit Colonel Laughlin with the change to the Bubble Top canopy, a positive change for visibility and accessibility. This photo shows a P-47 Razorback being prepped for a mission, with a fuel tank and two bombs already loaded under the plane.
