"Three Minute Egg Club"

     

"Three Minute Egg Club"

During World War II, long and dangerous missions often meant that fighters returned to their bases with only enough fuel in their airplanes to fly three minutes. Pilots of the 15th Army Air Force Squadron formed "The Three Minute Egg Club." Membership was limited to pilots who landed within these narrow margins. Circa 1944.
