The P-47 Thunderbolt of Robert S. Johnson heads back to England after being heavily damaged,
and plunging from 20,000 ft. Wounded and unable to bail out, he turns to see the FW-190 flown by
German ace Egon Mayer closing in on him. Mayer relentlessly unloads the rest of his ammo on Johnson,
but the American keeps flying. Mayer then pulls along side Johnson to inspect his surviving aircraft.
After flying together for some time the German pilot salutes the American and pulls away. Johnson
crash-lands safely back in England and survives to become one of the
top American aces in WWII with 27 aerial victories.
