Fields, pilot of a P-47 Thunderbolt, "thats the first bomb ever to be loaded under an American fighter plane flying from England." Sgt Carl E. Trabin, Philadelphia, Pa., Cpl. Loren Toycer, Colfax, Wisc., and Sgt William Woods, Baltimore, MD., are making doubly sure that the little surprise for Hitler is properly racked.
