Lt. Col. James Howard flew P-51B “Ding Hao!” AJ-A (36315), when he was Commanding Officer of the 354th Fighter Group. He flew with the American Fighter Group, known as the “Flying Tigers”, in China until the unit disbanded on July 4, 1942, and then he joined the 356th Fighter Squadron, 354th Fighter Group, 9th USAAF, in England. While he was with the Flying Tigers, he was credited with 2.33 air-to-air and four air-to-ground victories, and his total of 8.33 air-to-air made him an Ace. On January 11, 1944, he single-handedly defended a formation of B-17 bombers from the 401st Bomb Group against an estimated 30-40 German fighters northwest of Halberstadt, Germany. For his efforts on this mission, he was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor, the only fighter pilot in northwestern Europe to receive the nations highest honor.

    This is excellent Trenton, and the history always adds to a piece of artwork not that yours needs it!! What medium do you use or is it mixed?
    Cheers Neil

    Col. Jim Howard has always been a great hero of mine. I’ll bet I’ve done his Mustang a dozen times over the years. This is a great effort and an absolutely great subject!

  • Thanks John!
