Yesterday, April 30th 2015, was the 72nd Anniversary of the sinking of the Leone Pancaldo, an enemy destroyer during WWII (MTO) that was bombed by Curtiss P-40 Warhawk Pilot, William David Gatling.

The Institute of Military Technology was very proud to have William David Gatling who is currently 93 years old, share his experiences during WWII flying the Curtis P-40 Warhawk with the 324th Fighter Group- 315th Fighter Squadron. United States of American Army Air Corp 1943.

He was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross on July 31st, 1944 for his actions on April 30th, 1943, being credited for sinking the first enemy warship in this theater by fighter plane - the Leone Pancaldo.
