Wait a minute.......the yanks were actively fighting Germany before Congress declared war? That must've been the first and only time they've ever done that!!

Sarcasm over.

There were lots of American volunteers during WW2, the RAF had their own American squadron - Eagle Squadron I think (I posted this before I read the article lol). And I don't think it was the first time either, I'm pretty sure there were some American volunteers during WW1 as well.

In relations to the article, I saw this a few weeks ago. But an impressive feat none the less. I don't know whether it was the same aircraft, but they pulled some machine guns out that still worked. Wasn't that article posted on here?
