Witold Łanowski, nicknamed "Lanny" first enrolled in the military in memory of his colleagues as a self-confident and impartial individual and demonstrated himself as a great instructor and pilot. He was born on June 8th, 1915 in Lwów, and in 1935 he joined the Cadet School in Dęblin. After four years he became an instructor. During World War II, thanks to Gładych's support, he was transferred to the American 61st Fighter Squadron, where on May 15th, 1944, he finally took control of a Thunderbolt. The P-47M-1-RE version which he piloted had a new, more powerful engine, which made it faster than almost any German fighter with a piston engine. The aircraft was armed with eight 12.7 mm machine guns and also could carry bombs and rockets which made it an effective ground attacker.
