Wadsworth Stone


Wadsworth “Waddy” Stone always wanted to be a fighter pilot. After months of tests and training, Stone got his wish, flying a single-engine P-47 Thunderbolt over France and Germany. “You were everything – pilot, navigator, bombardier...,” he said of flying the P-47. Stone would go on more than 110 missions, mostly escorting mid-range bombers, but also hitting railyards and other targets.
