Still Life with Jug - Republic P-47 Thunderbolt
Republic P-47D Thunderbolt "No Guts No Glory" Aviation Art Print by Charles J. Thompson ASAA, GAvA
The Republic P-47 Thunderbolt was one of the largest aircraft of WWII, yet contrary to popular myth the nickname 'Jug' was not a shortening of juggernaut. It was in fact given because in profile the aircraft looks like a milk jug. This particular P-47D was part of the Old Flying Machine Company based at Duxford , Cambs being painted up as an aircraft of the 78th Fighter Group which was based at the airfield during WWII. The aircraft has since been sold on to a collection in the United States.
