    Hello mates! I'm the new guy so I thought I'd start with a question. Feel free to direct me to the proper spot if necessary. But here goes...
    The photo I found on Google directed me to this site, but I can't access the image. This is the shot of 'Tar Heel' after it's crash by Lt. Bert Stiles in November of 1944. I'd like a larger version of it it if it's available somewhere.

    Here is the shot: [​IMG]

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    Dixon Cannon
