Aviation Art: WWII Military Paintings

Recommended Posts

I have a smiall collection of WWII Military Aviation Art that I would like to share with the members.

I would like to have the pictures show up in the body of my posts instead of including a link to a site to download them, but I havn't figured out how to do that yet?

I will give it a try and if I don't succeed, maybe someone can tip me off as to how to do it?

I really like these two paintings as they show a P-38 and a Corsair blowing away Zeros with the Japanese pilots bailing out....GREAT ACTION SHOTS!

Chuck,

Unfortunately, you can't link to images using the standard image tags because box.net uses Flash to display the images you store on their servers.

You might want to try getting a free image hosting account at VillagePhotos.com. They allow you to link to images you store on their servers.

Nice artwork, btw. The P-38 image is very good :thumbsup:

Those are some damn nice pics there. :thumbsup:

I use Photobucket for my screenshots and stuff, it's free and completely idiotproof to use. And when it comes to computers I need as much idiotproofing as I can get because computers and I don't get along very well in general. :lol:

OK I got an account at Village Photo (it wouldn't let me create a folder called "WWII AVIATION PIX"? So, I just called it "1"?)

I uploaded 6 pix and I copied the URL of one of them and will now try and post that pix here so that it appears within the body of this post...if it doesn't work, I will try "PHOTOBUCKET"!! (Cuz I am an "idiot" and need to use things that are "idiot" proof!)

One of my favorite WWII Military Aviation Books is "THE GRIM REAPERS AT WORK IN THE PACIFIC THEATER"...this is the Bio of Major General John P. Henebry (RET) who was a B-25 Pilot in the 5th Airforce.

He was one of the leaders of the 345th Bombardment Group in this DUSTJACKET%20OF%20THE%20GRIM%20REAPERS%20BOOK.jpgfamous raid of 11/2/43 against the Japanese at Simpson Harbor near Rabaul in New Britain.

He and his crew were responsible for the sinking of two Japanese freigters during just this one raid....talk about a "COMMERCE DESTROYER"!!!!!

The Dust Jacket has a GREAT painting of this raid that now hangs in the Office of the Secretary of the Air Force....it is THAT good!

Here it is and I highly recommend the book that it covers as well!

Chuck

PS: As I noted elsewhere...one of my dreams in Air Combat Sim play is to somehow duplicate this raid and fly Henebry's B-25, nicknamed "Notre Dame De Victoire, on this very mission. Do you think that dream could possibly come true one day???????????

Easy to do now, even if we used someplace in the Slot map to stand in for Rabaul. Even better will be when the New Britain map at AAA is done.

All we need are the time of day, waypoints (and altitude, speed, and direction if available) and the numbers of aircraft and ships and it's done.
