Although she may have been finished with the racing wars, Twilight Tear was
not finished with her effort. Twilight Tear would fly once more, not down the
racetracks of America but in the skies over Europe. In 1944 in North American
Aviation's factory in California, an airplane was assembled and shipped to the
Eighth Air Forces's 78th Fighter Group in England. There the Mustang
P-51-D-20 44-63864 was paired with a young American Lieutenant, Hubert "Bill"
Davis. (83rd Fighter Squadron) Inspired by the fortitude of Calumet's
formidable racing filly, he named the plane "Twilight Tear" and flew her in the
bulk of his thirty-five combat missions. Together they shot down three enemy
planes and incapacitated another.
