A German convoy, carrying ammunition and gasoline somewhere
in Northern France, has just been strafed by 9th Air Force P-47
pilot Lt. Colonel Louis T. Houck of Todd, North Carolina. Houck
approached the convoy at deck level and sprayed it with
50-caliber incendiaries. One vehicle after another burst into
flames until the entire convoy was ablaze. Photo via
