P-47D "Fickle Flossie"

As part of the their D-Day coverage our local newspaper ran a piece about a local resident and P-47 pilot named Ben Johnson who flew this airplane as part of the 366th Fighter Group.

I'd like to do a repaint of an existing P-47 model to represent the airplane that he flew over 100 missions in. I'm having a hard time finding information about this plane though. The nose art is not a problem, but I don't know anything about how the rest should look.

Can anyone help me with additional information. I have attached photos representing the info that I do have.

Thanks,

Curt

bumping this old thread to add some info...

My Grandmother's name was Florence.
My Grandfather was James Milton Fogle

The picture of "Fickle Flossy III" is actually my Grandfather, from what I can tell.
That pilot on the wing is DEFINITELY my Grandpa.

Family photo that my mom has...



Happy Veterans Day to all who have served or are serving!

Just going through the website for that unit, that has some of the best nose art I have seen. They obviously had a sign guy in the unit doing them, they all have good layouts and images, something that is not common on most unit nose art.
