Brazilian Air Force Sergeant Robson Saldanha stands before a United States-built Republic P-47D Thunderbolt of the Brazilian 1st Fighter Group during their deployment to northern Italy in 1945. The “Senta a Púa” insignia is the logo for the fighter group. It is roughly “fight with a spur,” which invokes the popular cockfighting traditions of Brazil.
