Historical Information

The U.S. military’s aviation program during World War I was a disaster; no American-built plane reached France in time to engage in combat. Meantime, eager young Americans had enlisted in the Lafayette Escadrille and, with United States entry into the war, a newly recruited American Air Force flew French and British planes.

Among the American flyers who distinguished themselves, none caught the popular imagination more than “Eddie” Rickenbacker, who, as pilot with the 94th Aero Pursuit Squadron (the first U.S. squadron to go into action) shot down a total of 26 enemy craft. After the war, Rickenbacker had a long and successful career in commercial aviation, and with the coming of World War II enlisted his talents once again in building up an American Air Force.

Date Created: Painted 1984
