A P-38 Pilot’s 45th Mission

Lt. Joe Moser in his handpainted A-2

Victory Girl had the honor of creating some unique   artwork on one of our lightweight lambskin A-2s for WWII veteran Lt. Joe Moser, a P-38 pilot with 44 missions.  Joe was shot down in enemy territory, captured by the Germans and  sent to the Buchenwald concentration camp, where he spent 18 months.  With the help of  the Bravo 369 Foundation (www.bravo369.org), Joe Moser got to fly a P-38 again, with the help of Steve Hinton and the Planes of Fame, at Chino Airport, Chino, Ca.    Watch the YouTube clip, here, for a summary of Joe’s amazing military experience and ’45th Mission….’
