A powerful tributeto one of thegreatest AmericanFighter Aces in history

by Simon Atack

Flying his P-51 Scat VII Robin Olds brings down a Me109 G10 high over Germany inthe late spring of 1945 while flying escort to B-17s bombers of the 381st BombGroup. Remarkably, this Mustang survived the war and in 1958 was sold to a privateowner, in 1992 it was returned to its wartime configuration.

Typical of the aggressive fighter pilots led by the greatHub Zemke was Robin Olds. He arrived at RAF Wattisham, England in May 1944,assigned to fly the remarkable P-38 fighter with the 434th Squadron. It didn’ttake long for the novice pilot to make his mark and after flying interdictionmissions over France and Germany with the 479th, Olds took part inthe D-Day operations and then on August 13 opened his score by jumping twoFw190s at ground level. Acouple of weeks later he bagged three Me109s when attacking a group of somefifty enemy fighters while escorting bombers high over Muritz Zee. Converting to P-51D Mustangs, he completed two combat tours, flying deeppenetration missions, engagements with the Luftwaffe’s new Me363 jet fighter,and strafing attacks on German facilities and airfields. By the end of the war,at 23 years of age with the rank of Major, Robin Olds was in command of 434Squadron and his final tally was 13 air victories. He would go on to scoreanother four victories whilst flying Phantoms in Vietnam to become a triple acewith 17 victories.
