PBY, Aleutians 1944





"For I dipt into the future, far as human eye could see,
Saw the Vision of the world, and all the wonder that would be;
Saw the heaven fill with commerce, argosies of magic sails,
Pilots of the purple twilight, dropping down with costly bales;
Heard the heavens fill with shouting, and there rained a ghastly dew
From the nation’s airy navies grappling in the central blue"
- Alfred,Lord Tennyson (1809-1892)

Thank you very much for this and the other countires threads you have been posting these great hi-res shots in. As a skinner I find many of these photos, especially the color ones, a useful reference.
As a mission builder photos of airfileds are helpful too in making believable eye candy.

Amazing photographs! I have to say, that one you have from the nose of the B-25 sure reminded me of a photograph I took from the nose of a B-25 (Maid in the Shade) last Summer as we were arriving at a new site:

Dozens of aircraft were moved simultaneously on public roads for a towing distance of about six miles; it was accomplished on a Sunday morning to avoid high traffic.
