As his salute to the 56th Fighter group, historical artist Jerry Crandall has captured Col. David Schilling in his P-47 "Hairless Joe" when he encountered over 100 bogeys 23 Dec. 1944. After multiple vectors, Schilling added 3 Bf 109's and 2 Fw 190's to his victory tally. This would be recognized as a record day not only for Col. Schilling but for the group as well as they downed 37 E/A in an historic air battle over Bonn, Germany. Schilling assumed command of the 56th after Col. Hub Zemke. He ended the war as a top ace with 22.5 aerial and 10.5 ground victories. This highly respected leader was killed in a 1956 auto accident in England. Captured with incredible detail and accuracy, this highly accurate historic print honors Col. Schilling and all members of the famed 56th!

- Col. Hubert “Hub” Zemke
