10 Myths: Don’t Like

Flight Journal - - EDITORIAL - Ma­jor King, Lake Elsi­nore, Cal­i­for­nia

The ar­ti­cle was in­for­ma­tive, gen­er­ally. How­ever, I do think the job of de­bunk­ing the myths was in­ad­e­quate in that there is lit­tle sup­port for the var­i­ous ar­gu­ments. For ex­am­ple, you state the Tuskegee Air­men had no ace. From my re­search and talks with some of the Tuskegee Air­men here in San Diego, they con­firm that Lee Archer had five vic­to­ries. Archer claimed four and was cred­ited with four. He was made an hon­orary mem­ber of the Amer­i­can Fighter Aces As­so­ci­a­tion.—Bar­rett Till­man
