 US Air Force Colonel James Morehead was among the most highly decorated

flying aces of World War II. Engaging in 20 dogfights and downing 8 enemy planes

earned him 2 Distinguished Service Crosses, a Silver Star and 16 other medals. Jim

“Wild Man” Morehead earned his nickname for his willingness to take risks, including

a nearly 80-mile flight upside down from his base near Novato, to Sacramento – “just

because he could.” In 1999 he was inducted into the American Combat Airman Hall of

Fame. Colonel Morehead died March 11, 2012 at age 95 in Petaluma.
