Hi, Rudy- I have a picture of my dad in a plane with the MX*I marking, but not certain that was his plane. I also have a photo of dad in a plane marked "Rosey the Riveter". He was shot down twice, but I only have information on his second crash in Poland(see attached). It is possible that his first crash was in Belgium- he was able to make it back to Allied lines safely. After his second crash, he was a POW until the end of the war(2-3 weeks)-fortunate. Please let me know if you find out anything about the Belgium crash. Dad never spoke much about his war efforts- doing so gave him nightmares for weeks afterwards. I recently learned some of these details through contacts on the p47 pilot website.
