Remark Photographer
44-14977 / B6-Y (cn 109-28610) I'm uploading this historic image on behalf of Jeff Lee and Dan Manthos. It's from the collection of Kodachrome slides that was formed by their father, Major Atlee G. Manthos of the 78th and 357th Fighter Groups, and is submitted in his memory. The photo was taken shortly after the end of the war in Europe, note the buzz letters under the wing. 363rd FS, 357th FG. Named 'The Count' with the caricature of a pilot (probably Carroll Ofsthun of the 363rd Fighter Squadron, the regular pilot of this Mustang) and 60 mission marks.

A visitor from United States posted Fri March 18, 2011:
The first thing that hits me about this shot is that it's in color.(rare) the second is that it is showing a lot of detail. you can read most of if not all of the markings and it gives an excellent point of reference for modelers. thank you for posting this photo and I posthumously and respectfully salute Major Manthos for his service.
