Greg "Pappy" Boyington was one of the most colorful characters to come out of World War II and every since the 1970's TV show Baa Baa Black Sheep, he has been a hero of mine. His tough, hard-living unorthodox way of life seems to speak to a part of the American character... the flawed hero.
A US Marine Corp officer, recipient of the Medal of Honor, Flying Tiger, Commander of VMF-214 "The Black Sheep Squadron", survived being a POW of the Japanese, the only fighter pilot to be portrayed in a prime-time TV show. If there was ever a fight, Pappy was one you wanted on your side.
This pilot figure is FULL FIGURED right down to his laced 1940's officer shoes.
PLEASE NOTE: Since cockpits in all models vary greatly, Best Pilots can not guarantee that our Pilots will fit EXACTLY in your model without some trimming either to the pilot or to the cockpit. If some of the pilot has to be trimmed away, Best Pilots was glad to provide you with more pilot than you needed!
