    Later in WWII the Allied bombers were flying deep into Germany but suffered tremendous losses
    because of the lack of range the fighter escorts had. German fighters would wait beyond the
    range of the Allied fighters and then attack the vulnerable bombers. Once the P-51 called
    Mustang by the British had the Allison engine replaced with a British Merlin it possessed the high
    performance that had been lacking. With drop tanks the P-51 had the range to escort bombers all
    the way to Berlin and back.

    In late 1944 Captain James W. Browning of the 357th FG, 363rd FS returned for his second
    tour. On Feb. 9, 1945 while piloting Gentleman Jim he failed to return. An eyewitness said he
    saw an aircraft collide with an ME-262 and Browning_s dog tags were found with the wreckage.
    Due to his fine manners Chuck Yeager and Bud Anderson nicknamed him 'Gentleman Jim'.
    Captain Browning had 7 aerial victories and his decorations included 3 Distinguished Flying
    Crosses, the Purple Heart, eight Air Medals and the French Croix de Guerre.
