Photos of Reynaldo Perez Gallardo, Captain, B flight, Escuadron 201, FAEM
A young officer in the Mexican Air Force
This is probably Rey's official ID photo. In this picture he is still a Lieutenant. Note the cockade and single vertical rank bar on the overseas cap. He wears branch of service prop and wing on one collar and rank on the other.
The 'Movie Star' portrait
Every fighter pilot has one. This one is even signed. Rey is wearing the winter service dress of the Mexican Army, air force branch. Notice the wreath and cockade above his double bar captains rank.
A flight of P-47s
These are not marked in the FAEM colors and have invasion stripes. These could be the FAEM planes before they were repainted.
