A-20Gs from the 388BS/312BG doing what the 5th Air Force does best, parafrag bombing/strafing runs at treetop level over enemy bases. Note the Japanese trucks under the other A-20. Probably present-day Fernando Air Base.

One of the best Pacific theater WWII photographs I have seen. Note the condensation effect seen on the Havoc's props. Thank you very much for uploading this photo.

Great shot, thnx for uploading. Perfectly shows the dark atmosphere of war. The photographer and his mates are probably being shot at, a few moments later the bombs explode and probably people get killed.
The high humidity shows, water on the runway.
