    Thank you Colin1. I believe you are correct. This grouping of photographs is what threw me off. A formation of C-119's wouldnt have been in the same period as the other photos.

    Glad I (hopefully) got it right
    not my strong hand - was it Vietnam vintage, or Korea?

    I don't know. Most of the photo grouping is from 1943-1944 Guam, Truk and of the 55th Weather Reconnaissance Squadron, Long Range. Doesn't fit.
    Maybe you can help me with the other post of aircraft identification.

    Stars'n'bars aren't appropriate for 43-44

    Boxcar was a paratrooping aircraft in the 1950s to early 1960s.
