    Hey Guys,

    Just got a great album in from a 5th Army guy who served in Italy in WWII. Among his photo was this cool shot of two planes flying overhead. I can't identify them. Any thoughts? Slightly swept back wings and twin engines may help. Reminds me of the 262.

    Its almost lunchtime and my aged brain is a little hungry....but I'd say those were prop driven craft and I'd venture a guess that they are American C-47 transports.
    Cool pic, though. thanks

    I second the motion. C-47 aka DC-3 aircraft. Try to size photos to 800 by 600 as there are folks in here who will delete them otherwise. They have mine before I knew the drill.
