You didnt smile...

Thanks for sharing this picture, so gutted I missed out on bidding for it ☹️ We have a 148 veterans/relatives research group called “Operation Dark of the Moon” as we cover the Squadrons Special Duties period (1943-1945). This Liberator was part of the “Special Liberator Flight” which became “X Flight” before finally being part of the reformed 148 SD Squadron with Halifax aircraft joining the Libs. With dropping agents and supplies from bases in North Africa and then Southern Italy, into the Balkans, Southern Europe and Poland, including the ill fated Warsaw Uprising support mission. The Polish flight also operated Liberators on these flights and the South African 178 Squadron lost many of its Liberator crews on the hazardous Warsaw operations. Also loving this thread as I live in the middle of the 2nd AD’s, 96th BW, Bomb Group bases ! Rackheath (467th), Horsham St Faiths (458th) and Attlebridge (466th). Grew up hearing the stories of mass formations and many unfortunate crashes. Hope this thread continues to grow 👍 Steve A

Great shots of actual wear and tear on aircraft paint - I've inheirted my dad's pet peeve on airplane pictures that show them as if they just rolled out of the factory.
