Looking for a DVD on Mexico’s 201st Fighter Squadron of WWII

By Mr. History
9/15/2015 • Ask Mr. History

Why can’t I find a DVD on Mexico’s WW2 201st Fighter Squadron, which flew P-47 Thunderbolts in the Pacific. I have met some of the pilots and they cant tell me why.

I am a Korean War combat vet. Thanks !

Dear Mr. Rosales,

There was at least one documentary made on the 201st Fighter Squadron, The Forgotten Eagles, from Eravision Film Production, http://www.201prod.com/index2.html. Whether it is still obtainable may be another matter, but several short videos on the unit can also be found on YouTube.

Our own World War II and Aviation History magazines have also published articles on the subject (see below)
