P-47D Razorback T-Shirt, Col. Neel Kearby, New Guinea, 1943

$20.00




Raised in Texas, Neel Kearby went to school to study business administration but changed his mind and entered the U.S. Army Air Force (USAAF) and became a pilot. He became a very good pilot and began to rise through the ranks. During the war, he had been promoted all the way to Colonel and commanded his own fighter group, the 348th, of the 5th Air Force, flying out of New Guinea.
On October 11, 1943, he led a flight of four fighters on a sweep over the Japanese installation at Wewak, New Guinea, where they encountered approx. 40 Japanese aircraft. In the ensuing battle Kearby downed six Japanese, a new record for a single mission. He was awarded the Medal of Honor for this mission and continued to increase his score to 22 aircraft at the time, before he was shot down himself.
