WWII Triple Ace Bud Anderson Gun Camera Film

Captured on Film
WWII Triple Ace Bud Anderson of the 363rd Squadron was the highest-scoring Flying Ace in his P-51 Mustang Squadron. In this gun camera film taken on April 11, 1944, we get to see how Captain Anderson deals with two Me 109s and one He 111-K.
You could see the tracers coming out of his Mustang – which landed on the 109s trying to get away from him. He managed to destroy one 109, damage another, and share a 1/4 victory against an He-111K.
Accuracy and precision was the key to bringing down enemy warbirds! Much respect for Captain Bud Anderson for shooting these fighters down quickly!
