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.

I moved to the PI in 1959 as an 11 year old: my father worked at Clark AFB. Our scout troop camped near Camp O'Donnell, in the Zambales Mountains before anybody had even heard of Mt. Pinatubo. We read everything we could get our hands on about the war in the Philippines...the conflict had only ended 14 years earlier. These photos bring back a lot of strong emotions that I felt while visiting places like Corregidor. We covered much of the ground from one end of the Bataan Death March to the other.
