  • SBD-5 Dauntless;
  • B25 Mitchell;
  • P51 Mustang.

Three aircraft that made history in the European and Pacific Theaters of Operation during World War II.

It was a nice early-summer day, and I brought the Mamiya RZ67 Pro-II, and some Kodak 400TX (black and white) and Kodak Portra 400 (color) film to the Runway Cafe at the Greenville Downtown Airport.

For more information on these aircraft and the CAF, please have a look at the Commemorative Air Force Dixie Wing and Minnesota Wing web sites
