0615 hours. We find our designated seats in the briefing room. A flight leader sits in the front row with his wing man (number two) immediately behind him. The number three man (element leader) sits behind number two, and directly behind him sits the number four man (tail-end Charlie). The briefing officer can then tell at a glance if anyone is missing and in what position in the formation they are flying. The big map on the wall behind the briefing officer has a red string from our base to the rendezvous point, then to the bombers' target. Zigs and zags in the string show the turning points to help us avoid known flak concentrations. The target for today is Berlin, which is a five-and-a-half hour mission for us, and over eight hours for the bombers. We are given our engine start times, bomber-rendezvous time and target time. Flak locations are covered, expected enemy opposition is discussed, and the weather for launch, en route, target area, and recovery time is briefed. All pilots hack their GI wristwatches to the exact time and the briefing is concluded. We then check out our parachutes, zip on the anti-G suit, put on a heavy jacket, don the Mae West life vest; heavy gloves and fur-lined boots complete the suiting-up. The cockpit heater in the P-51 only works when the outside air temperature is warm enough that you don't need it anyway. On the way out of the briefing room, they have several boxes of candy bars for "in-flight lunches" and I grab a couple of bars. We gather outside the briefing room, where we are picked up by several GI trucks and hauled to the various dispersal areas where our planes are parked. On arrival at my parking area, my crew chief takes my parachute and places it in the cockpit. I ask him if all the fuel tanks, including the two pressed-paper 110gallon external tanks, are topped off. He assures me they are full and, trusting him implicitly, I don't bother to check them. He is now standing on the wing helping me buckle into the 'chute and seat harness. He climbs down and stands by the nose of the plane with a fire extinguisher at his side to monitor the engine start.
