Too Little Too Late by Keith Ferris
Pearl Harbor wasn't the only place that was attacked on December 7, 1941. Across the International Date Line - making it officially December 8th - lay Clark Field in the Philippines, which was pounded by Japanese "Betty" Bombers, then strafed by Zeroes.

Some American pilots managed to counterattack, two such heroes, LT. General USAF (Ret.) Joseph Moore and Colonel USAF (Ret.) Sam Grashio, are pictured in Keith Ferris' "Too Little Too Late".

Triple-Axis Ace...Plus One by Don Hollway
Already sporting a trifecta of Axis victory markings on his P-51D, Bad Angel, Capt. Louis Curdes does what no other American ace has ever done: win a medal for downing an American plane. On February 10, 1945, he spots an off-course Douglas C-47 Skytrain of 317th Troop Carrier Group, the “Jungle Skippers,” about to make a mistaken landing on Japanese-held Batan Island, in the Formosa Strait off the northern end of the Philippines. Rather than see the pl...

Louis Edward Curdes (November 2, 1919 – February 5, 1995) was an American flying ace of the United States Army Air Forces during World War II who held the unusual distinction of scoring an official air-to-air kill against another American Aircraft. He was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross twice and a Purple Heart. He flew a North American P-51 Mustang fighter aircraft with the nickname "Bad Angel".

Curdes was one of only three American pilots to shoot down aircraft belonging to the German, Italian and Japanese air forces. He was also involved in a bizarre incident where he intentionally shot down an American cargo plane, and then later married one of the survivors. In total, Curdes shot down seven German Messerschmitt Bf 109s, an Italian Macchi C.202 fighter, a Japanese Mitsubishi Ki-46 reconnaissance aircraft and an American Douglas C-47 Skytrain.

Today is the 80th anniversary of the sinking of the famous German battleship, Bismarck. The sea chase and subsequent final battle required many warships and aircraft of the Royal Navy and Fleet Air Arm. Here's a selection of some aviation art featuring the venerable "outdated" biplane torpedo bomber, the Fairey "Stringbag" Swordfish, which attacked and crippled the mighty battleship which allowed the Royal Navy to catch up with her and finally sink the Bismarck!
