Yes, the circles look squashed, but they are not. That’s just due to the automated mock-up software. I assure you the art is mathematically precise.
Since we just passed the 70th anniversary of the end of the war in the Far East, it seems like an appropriate time to post these photos.
My maternal grandfather was an aircraft mechanic in China with the US forces there. If I recall correctly, he was with the 23rd Fighter Group, not the American Volunteer Group.
I apologize in advance for the quality of the photos, but i have tried to retouch them as best I can. They are simply old, dirty, grainy and frequently poorly exposed.
I’m going to separate these into ‘aircraft’ and ‘other’ pictures.
