  1. Interesting shot - as allways - and superb ideas for Dioramas!

  2. Interesting photos, especially the first one which is very dramatic.
    Unless I’m seeing it wrong, there seems to be some paint chipping on the right wing of the TBF Avenger, and if this photo is a true Kodak Color photo not a colorised one then there is no primer there, just bare metal. Anyone want to comment this? I’m surprised cause I keep seeing models of US Navy planes where the chipping has no metal underneath, just zinc primer and since I’m no expert on the subject...

  3. Interesting photos, especially #1. Is that the famous TBM / TBF plane crash of (then) Lt. George Bush (later Prez. Bush #1) ?

    True colour or not it's a GREAT quality photo.

  4. Chaplains in the field.

  5. I always wondered how they washed Avengers !

  6. So that's where the life raft is on the TBM? That crows nest in the one photo looks like real Purple Heart calibre work. No wonder they're praying down below.
    I can't figure ut whats going on in the other shot, using the crash as a sliding board? Huh? Aircraft version of the clown car in the circus, mob gets out of a small vehicle? Guess we'll never know.

  7. Despite I have seen several time this pic, each time is like the first. Very nice shot, and the idea of a diorama comes every time in my mind.
