MIND

Gabreski

The wingman is absolutely indispensable. I look after the wingman. The wingman looks after me. It’s another set of eyes protecting you. That the defensive part. Offensively, it gives you a lot more firepower. We work together. We fight together. The wingman knows what his responsibilities are, and knows what mine are. Wars are not won by individuals. They’re won by teams.

— Lt. Col. Francis S. “Gabby” Gabreski, USAF, 28 victories in WWII and 6.5 MiGs over Korea

Of all my accomplishments I may have achieved during the war, I am proudest of the fact that I never lost a wingman.

— Colonel Erich ‘Bubi’ Hartmann, GAF
