Sample text

That was the end for that pilot—Chuck opened fire and tallied up his fourth victory of the day. The fifth victory occurred some moments later. Yeager went into a steep dive, and a German pilot followed him. ” Chuck pulled up and out in time to avoid the ground, but the German pilot did not. General Eisenhower would never have to regret his decision to reinstate Chuck Yeager into military combat. The military newspaper of the day, The Stars and Stripes, actually ran a headline attesting to Eisenhower’s wisdom in reinstating Chuck into combat.

The headline read: FIVE KILLS VINDICATE IKE’S DECISION Chuck flew 56 more combat missions during World War II. He was credited with shooting down 11 enemy planes. Between July and October of 1944, Chuck was promoted from second lieutenant to captain. On January 15, 1945, Bud Anderson and Chuck Yeager flew their last mission together. Shortly thereafter, the two fighter pilots flew back to the United States together. Chuck spent one night at the home of Bud Anderson’s parents. The following day, February 13, 1945, he celebrated his twenty-second birthday.

The American flyboy took exception to this treatment, as he had been through far too much to end up in jail. Using his survival kit’s saw, he cut through the brass bars of his cell window. Too tired to run far, he made his way to a nearby hotel. The police didn’t bother him for some reason, although it was a small town and they knew exactly where he had gone. At the hotel, Yeager dined on chicken and beans. He took a warm bath and climbed into bed. It was March 28, 1944—over twenty days since he was shot down.
