Heroes of the 354th Fighter Group - JMT Productions

A Documentary Film about the 354th Fighter Group during World War II

JMT Productions out of Southern California is currently working on a two-hour documentary film about the men and history of the Pioneer Mustang Fighter Group during World War II.

354thpmfg.com (formally 354th.com) viewed a ten minute trailer on this documentary. I was overcome with a tremendous sense of pride and impressed with JMT's professionalism. A documentary long in coming - the 354thpmfg.com website supports this project 100% and encourages anyone associated with the 354th Fighter Group to provide use of any form of materials to this project.

The Project

Jon Teboe and production staff attended the 2006 reunion in Portland, Oregon where they began interviewing 354th veterans. This is a documentary about the men of the 354th Fighter Group. A recently discovered diary of 1st Lt. William R. Perkins will be our introduction to the men of the 354th. "Perk" served in the 356th Fighter Squadron in World War II. His P-51 Mustang was nicknamed "ANGEL FROM HELL". Although against the rules, he kept a very detailed diary from January 1 to June 12, 1944.  He crashed on June 13, 1944 a few days after D-Day near Notre Dame de Cenilly in France.

The documentary will incorporate Perkins' diary and recent interviews with those listed below:
