Here are some photos that I rediscovered from my Uncle’s service in the 84th Airdrome during World War II.
He never mentioned his service much to me so I really don’t know much about these photos and unfortunately he is no longer alive to answer any questions so….
|This is a Curtiss P-40 on take off from a strip in the Philippines.|
|This is a Douglas A-20 Havock that my Uncle wrote the caption “My Ship” and New Guinea 1944 on the back of the photo. He was an armorer so he probably serviced this aircraft.|
|This is a Douglas C-54 Skymaster R5D four-engined transport aircraft.|
|Here is another view of a Douglas C-54.|
|Of course the most amazing photo that he took is this one of Col. Charles H. MacDonald’s P-38 Lightning “Putt Putt Maru”. I did a photo restoration of this photo in an earlier blog post. If you would like to follow along with the steps in the process and view the final result click here…
I do all sorts of computer graphics and design works.
