I noticed your stellar renditions of P-47's of the 404th FG on the Il-2 Forum and from there ended up here. Quite something to see these vs the usually, mostly black-and-white pictures. The D-28 skins are really fantastic.
Concerning this 'grouping' and assuming the Normandy timeframe : I don't believe "Janie" already existed. At that time, P-47D-22 Y8*T 225993 was named "Ramblin Wreck". Its pilot, Floyd Blair, got a newer type in December 1944, a P-47D-28-RA Y8*T 229289. So the D-22 got a new individual letter, 'N' and a new name, "Janie".
If you want to do another P-47D-28 in 507th markings (Crocus Squadron), happy to provide you with some info on the Ramblin Wreck.
