I was recently studying the loss of this P-47 Thunderbolthttp://pacificwrecks.com/aircraft/p-47/42-25419.html
The pilot bailed out, evaded capture and linked up with other American aviators, until the group totaled 28 men.
They reached a secret US radio station, radioed HQ and were rescued by several(?) "Cubs" to rescue all of them from behind enemy lines from a runway made in a clearing and flew them to back to San Jose, Mindoro.
One other clue, a reference says this same improvised airfield was used by US Army Alamo Scouts prior to the battle of Manila. The strip they were rescued from was near Akle (Acle) village.http://pacificwrecks.com/provinces/philippines_akle.html
Probably, it was a US Army or USAAF unit, probably based on or operating from Mindoro Island.
Although the write describes them as Piper Cub (L-4s), the rescue aircraft could also be L-5's I would imagine.
This reference comes from the 58th Fighter Group history, page 224http://pacificwrecks.com/reviews/58th-fighter-group.html
Does anyone know what unit, aircrew(s) or more about this incident?
Or, any other details about this?
