A P-47 Thunderbolt Fuels its tanks on WW2 Ie Shima.

P-47 Thunderbolt "Norma"
from the 34th fighter Squadron Yearbook

The fuel tanks on A P-47 Thunderbolt must be filled before it starts its engines.

This is one of the P-47 Thunderbolts on the island of Ie Shima.  Notice the size of this P-47, it's quite large for a fighter.  One thing about the P-47 is that it was very heavily armored making it very hard to shoot down.
