Loading Ammo on the Little Rock-ette P-47 Thunderbolt.
This plane carried Eight 50 cal Machine guns Four in 
each wing.  These guns gave the P-47 a major punch
against the frail Japanese Fighters and against almost
any Ground target.  The P-47 was heavily armored also
making it very difficult to shoot down.  It was Nicknamed
the Jug because it looked like a flying Jug.
