Get a P-47 Thunderbolt mug for your guy James.
The most underrated aircraft of the 20th century. No one cared about this one, because everyone was caught on the goddamned P-51, which didn't have the armor of its more impressive predecessor, which could take bullets from the top notches of the german Luftwaffe.
