  • I love color photos! Part 1

    [CENTER]A buddy emailed me a slideshow I thought I'd share. (it will take two threads). The titles are in Portuguese, so maybe one of those stalwarts could translate where needed.

    I'm pretty sure some of these pics have shown up before, but are worth a rerun.











    All questions are valid, all answers are tentative.

            Number 8 is misidentified in the picture. It is an A-20 Havoc. The aircraft photo is number 58 of 70 in the Homefront section, that particular photo is not captioned at all.
