Deployed to Okinawa in June 1945 as part of the 507th Fighter Group and prepared for the invasion of Japan along with the 413th and 414th Fighter Groups, all equipped with P-47N. On 1 July 1945 it began flying airstrikes from Ie Shima, targeting enemy ships, railroad bridges, airfields, factories, and barracks in Japan, Korea, and China. On 8 August 1945 the group escorted B-29 bombers on a raid, shooting down several Japanese fighters. The squadron flew some long distance fighter-bomber sweeps over Japanese Home Islands 1 July 1945 – 14 August 1945 but never performed operational B-29 escort missions due to the end of the war in August. Last “Ace in a Day” of World War II was 1st LT Oscar Perdomo of the 464th. Remained in Okinawa until inactivated in May 1946. 119th Fighter Squadron F-16 Fighting Falcon Model, Lockheed Martin, Mahogany 1/33 (18")Scale 119th Fighter Squadron F-16 Fighting Falcon Model
