I Allison McCord C "The Time Traveler's Trav-eler's Wife by Audrey It's fiction, a bit of science fiction ... It was very interesting and a lot of fun to read. I couldn't put it down." I Amie Davies veterans $rrrpv f3smm'ff'm4 This column has from time to time mentioned prejudice prej-udice against "Negroes," as they were called in the days of WW II ("African Ameri cans" is now the politically correct wording). In 1941, Congress proposed a "military experiment" in which Negroes would be trained as combat fighter pilots. Subsequently, 992 were trained (150 were lost either in training train-ing or combat). Flying out of North Africa and Sicily, they composed four squadrons, flying P-40's, P-47's, and finally P-51's. The Germans Ger-mans called them Schwarze Vogelmenschen ("Black Bird-men"). Bird-men"). To American bomber crews, they were known as "Redtails," because of the insignia on their aircraft tail. As Bob Peterson notes, they were welcome escorts to the B-24's. CUE www.heraldextra.com yellowpages About every third mission, we had with us the black pilots, pi-lots, the Tuskegee Airmen. I could tell some stories about them, if you want to cuss a little bit. We enjoyed those squadrons, because they were there to help us. The white fighter pilots had a pool to see who could shoot up the most trains, so a lot of the time they'd be down on the ground when we were jumped by enemy fighters. It would take them four or five minutes to get back to altitude, whereas the black pilots were always there. On one mission, our pilot called for help, because we couldn't keep up with the formation. A black pilot came over the radio: "Don't you all fret and worry. You've got the black angels up here." I looked up, and there were two Redtails about 5,000 feet above us, using us for "bait," waiting for some German fighters to jump us. One of them said, "There's an Me-109. I'm going to take him." (The Tuskegee airmen flew in formations of about four airplanes, and they called their commander "Boss.") Boss: "Keep your in formation" for-mation" Airman: "I'm going to take him. I can handle him, Boss." Boss: "You keep your in formation!" There were about four exchanges, ex-changes, and finally the boss said, "You git back hea'." As a gunner, I never had to fire my ball turret guns, though one of our gunners shot at a P-51 one day. The bombardier had called out, "Me-109 at 12 o'clock." I flipped on my arming switches and was coming down on my guns when I recognized it as a P-51. The Me-109 had an air scoop under the left wing, and the P-51's was under the fuselage. Statistically, you weren't supposed to survive as a ball turret gunner more than 17 runs. I read in our group newsletter that we lost half of our airplanes, mostly from flak. Ken Porter, of Delta, Utah, a B-24 tail gunner flying out of Foggia, Italy, also appreciated the Tuskegee airmen: On one mission, we were hit badly by flak. Our pilot called in for radio ra-dio protection, and it just happened hap-pened to be the black fighter group, whose call signal was "jet black." They came in and stayed just above us, using us as decoys as we tried to keep altitude. The pilot called them again, asking where they were. They said, "Hey, we sees you white boys. We sees you." But we still couldn't see them, so we called again. They responded, "What's the matter with you white boys? You're drawing flight pay too." They stayed with us until we were over the Adriatic Sea. They were wonderful pilots great escorts. Those guys were some real gentlemen. gentle-men. Porter describes in more detail how the crews jerry-built jerry-built stoves in their tents (also described by Bob Peterson last week): We took a 50-gallon barrel, cut the middle out of it, welded it together, put a little pipe into it and two bricks in the bottom. We filled an old fuel tank off a P-38 with high-octane gas, then ran a copper tube into our tent. The gasoline would drip on the bricks and burn. Many such stoves blew up, but we had to do something to heat our tents, the weather was so cold.
