Again a dramatic start on a wonderful set of images that always seem to set the pace of whats next. Always fun to see the next image and what you have for us every Friday. A great way to start the weekend, thanks for the pics Rob!!

Again the highlight of a Friday morning!! My pick for today is definitely the Grunt with the massive Centipede in Vietnam. Just proof that it wasn’t just the VC that could kill you. The jungle was sometimes worse!!

I thought the biggest centipedes live in the Amazon region and get to about 10 inches so either that picture has been shopped or that isn’t a centipede.

Looks like a period snap to me.

What ever it is it’s bloody horrible ,I’d scream like a little girl and run a mile if that came toward me !!

I think the image was from a ‘Nam vet’s personal photo archive and had a note at the bottom: “jungle centipede”, so assume it’s a photo of him or someone he knew.
Morne Meyer said on September 16, 2017
That is the Scolopendra Subspinnipes species of Centipede and can grow up to 20cm in length. However, in the jungle anything is possible!!!

I agree with Morne. The centipede did it. never seen a big one like in the picture.

TGIF, Rob….(a shame about that pile of F-4″s, though – couldn’t determine what country did that, though). And that shot of the F-18 pilot is stunning.
I seem to recall this as an “M” with Spanish Air Force.

Agree with Craig – hurts the heart to see a log pile of Phantom fuselages!
Jeff Bailey said on September 15, 2017
Wouldn’t those be Phantom Phuselages?
And yes … it is a shame that hurts the heart.
Love the photos, as usual.. Thanks, Rob !!
Cheers Rob another great set as usual,I didn’t know the RAF used “follow me ” jeeps.

Thank you! Many interesting photos again.
#9 – are there decals for The Mild & Bitter B-26 with all those autographs ..?
Don’t know but it would certainly be a great set, I think.
