|World War Two Memoirs of A Fighter Pilot
This book is the memories of P-38 Lightning pilot Clarence "Wogy" Wolgemuth in the 5th Air Force, 8th Fighter Group, 80th Fighter Squadron during World War II. All proceeds go to the 80th Fighter Squadron Headhunters Association.
On June 10, 1944 Wolgemuth took off on a training mission piloting P-38H 42-66841 on a training mission to strafe targets on the north coast of New Guinea. Due to bad weather, the formation became disoriented, ran low on fuel and elected to land Faita Airfield. The other three P-38s landed safely. This aircraft ran out of fuel and force landed wheels up in kunai grass near the runway. Wolgemuth survived the landing unhurt.
