ACTION OVER SALAMAUA

On 30 April 1942, during the running fight after a low-level strafing mission over Salamaua, New Guinea, Major George B. Greene Jr., commander of the 35th Fighter Squadron, 8th Fighter Group of the 5th USAAF, piloted a P-39D and was the first American Bell Airacobra pilot to score an aerial victory over an enemy fighter. Greene, in the foreground engaged and downed Flight Petty Officer Hideo Izumi, a nine-victory ace. Fighter ace Boyd “Buzz” Wagner, 5th Fighter Command, shown in the background also scored aerial victories against Zeros of the famed Tainan Kokutai during this mission.
