  1. An eclectic range of pics Rob.
    Some raise a chuckle.

  2. Be curious as to knowing the background story of two of those pics in particular: The Hellcat with the engine blown off and why the Hustler suddenly became a tail dragger. The gaping hole in the B-17’s fuselage I assume was the result of a direct hit by flak (or maybe a ramming)…either way, a great photographic testament to the ruggedness of the Boeing air frame. Keep up the good work, Simon. 🙂

  3. The Hustler just needed more lead shot in the nose…

  4. Greg’s right, not enough lead in its nose ! rifle practice, one girl has the right idea ! another great collection Rob.

  5. Hi Rob, I really enjoy your Friday briefings. Can you or anyone else, provide any back ground the first picture of the veiled women on the foot bridge. I’m guessing is in Vietnam or China, but the first woman in line certainly appears to be European/Western.

    • Hi Rick, to be honest I can’t recall. I think I may have found it on a Vietnam/ Korean War link, but I find these photos everywhere so it’s difficult to keep track sometimes for specific images.
      .

  6. My guess would be that a female european comrade was helping out the NVA. There are rumors that Russian advisors were helping the Hanoi gov’t., and the Chinese. Not a whole lot known, but in keeping with prior conflicts, not surprising.
