With the end of the war in sight P-51 Mustangs of the 55th Fighter Group sweep unopposed through the beautiful Rhine valley: One of Robert Taylor’s most iconic images Mustangs on the Prowl depicts the master Ace of the ground attack, Colonel Elwyn Righetti of the 55th Fighter Group. Flying his P-51D Mustang, the CO of 338 Squadron and ‘King of Strafers’, already with over 20 victories to his credit, leads his pilots through the Rhine Gorge, skimming the ancient Castle of Stableck, as they seek out enemy targets on their way back to England.
