Captain Earl Lazear

USAAF

EDITOR NOTE – Lanphier was one of the P-38 pilots in the ambush of Japanese Admiral Isorukyu Yamamoto and he claimed until his final day that he shot down the BETTY bomber that carried the Admiral.  However, careful scrutiny of the facts indicates that Lanphier shot down the plane with Yamamoto’s staff and that Rex Barber was the pilot who downed Yamamoto’s plane.  The USAAF gave each pilot one half credit for the action.
