Wreck of the US Liberator 'Lady be Good' in the Nth African desert 380 miles south of Tobruk.
It took off from the Benghazi area in 1943 to bomb Naples at night but overshot on the way back due to navigation error, and the crew bailed when fuel ran out, thinking they were still over the Mediterranean.
All but one of their bodies were recovered after the war.

Sighthead of Norden bombsight being taken aboard a Beechcraft AT-11, Texas, probably Midland AAF in 1942.
Caption from Jim- "I thought you might like some more information on the Norden bombsight ... My Dad was a Bombardier in WW2 and he told me a lot about it over the years. The Norden bombsight was composed of two pieces (see the 2nd picture below). Each bombardier carried the "sighthead" to the airplane before each mission. The main bombsight was permanently installed in the aircraft since it was connected to the autopilot, bomb doors, bomb releases, and so on. Just thought I would let you know the photo doesn't show a "new" bombsight being installed, it just shows a student bombardier arriving for his training mission (as shown by the AT-11) . If you look in the nose, the permanently installed part of the Norden is covered with a canvas. This was probably taken at Midland AAF, Texas which was a Bombardier training base. My Dad used to tell me that overseas (he was in Australia and New Guinea) he carried a .45 Automatic and was supposed to shoot anybody that tried to take the bag away from him."

Devastators off Hawaii, USS Enterprise Torpedo Sqn 6, 1941 prewar.
More details from Jim- Tail colors assigned to the US Carriers between the wars-
CV-2 Lexington - Lemon Yellow
CV-3 Saratoga - White
CV-4 Ranger - Willow Green
CV-5 Yorktown - Insignia Red
CV-6 Enterprise - True Blue
CV-7 Wasp - Black
Example: True Blue tail = These are from USS Enterprise CV-6 (also verified by the "6-T-*" on each aircraft), so the
caption for the photo could be: "Douglas TBD Devastators from Torpedo Squadron 6, USS Enterprise off Hawaii"
