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.

Breakout by Anthony Saunders
The pride of the German Kriegsmarine, the battleship Bismarck, breaks out from Norwegian waters into the open sea on the evening of May 21st 1941, accompanied by the heavy cruiser Prinz Eugen and an escort fleet, and a complement of Bf109s from 3./JG77 and Bf110s from ZG76. It's voyage would be short lived, however. After a shattering victory over Britain's famous HMS Hood, the Royal Navy hunted and eventually sank the mighty battleship on May 27th, 1941.

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 Here's a selection of some aviation art featuring the venerable "outdated" biplane torpedo bomber, the Fairey "Stringbag" Swordfish, which attacked and crippled the mighty battleship which allowed the Royal Navy to catch up with her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!
