For their performance the pilots of 487th FS earned themselves the only Distinguished Unit Citation that was awarded to a fighter squadron in the ETO during WWII.
When veteran 352nd FG pilot and Group historian Bob “Punchy” Powell sent me the story of the New Year’s Day air battle I was inspired commemorate the event with a couple of paintings.

I titled them “New Year’s Bash” and “The Legend of Y-29” featuring two-war ace Captain William T. Whisner and 487th CO Colonel JC Meyer respectively.
