"Yeager's First Jet"
Flying P-51s from England in early 1944, Captain Charles E. Yeager downed an Me109G and the next day the favor was returned and Yeager found himself on the ground in southern France evading capture. Yeager was able to make it back to Britain via Spain. From September 13th to November 27th he is credited
with 5.5 Me 109s, an Me 262 Jet and he rounded out his scoring on the
27th with 4 FW-190s.
