I'm seeking info and picture regarding my dad, Lt. Edward Knickman, P51 pilot with the 374th. He joined the 361st in August '44. His plane was called the Joe Ghost. Dad passed away 12/23/02, and I'm trying to compile a history for his grandkids. We only have 2 photos of his plane. (He held the rank of Capt. when he was discharged.) Also, he was the original link that Paul Cora used to write his book "Yellowjackets!"
It was a pleasure talking with you Steve, and I will be happy to assist Diane with whatever possible. I just spoke to my Dad's crew chief, Russell Severson, who is now 87 years old and as quick as a whip! Thanks for tracking me down and getting me back on track to find out more about my Dad's time flying P-51's.
