Found a few more for military aircraft fans. SW

Top is "Somewhere in the South Pacific". Japanese servicing float planes. I would imagine those bright lights would draw every mosquito on the island! I've no idea what model aircraft is shown.

Next is a "Symbiotic bomber". The two Il-16s drew fuel from the bomber's tanks and added their horsepower to the flight. When the bomber was getting low on gas, the Il-16s detatched and continued to the target with full tanks to drop their two ( each) 250# bombs. I'd imagine the Il-16 pilots weren't expected at the mess hall that evening.

Bottom shows a Russian Nieuport ( 21?). I'd never seen that roundel before, but the Imperial Russian Flying Corps used it for a short time. I've also seen a Russky Nieuport with the communist star roundel & will try to find it later on. SW

Image Not sure which type Nieuport, but the commie star can be seen on a detached wing surface. Darn trees will jump right out in fron of you if you don't watche 'em close!! ;)

I like that one of the seaplane. I'd bet those lights would attract more than just mosquito's! They must have felt pretty secure.
