It's a neat patch, but I find it hard to believe the squadron approved it. Seems a bit too childlike for an AAF squadron. Disney design? Jeffro

Disney design for sure as the airplane characters name is Pedro.

 

He was also used on a War Eagle field patch.

They continued to use this design well into the 1950s in USAFE.

Yes, really surprised it sold for so much, but it is Disney. Pilot never went overseas and was instructor and did some test piloting as well. This was from a local estate sale in So. Cal.
