    Well, they're yank. So, I'm saying B-25...there's only 6 of them. They are yank, right!?!

    What? No guesses on the plane, or congratulations on my logical approach to things?

    It is a logical approach, but I don't agree with your conclusion. The gear door is too low and the strut doesn't look like one from a B-25. Sorry. Compare with the pic below of Yellow Rose.

    Looking at the picture though, it appears to me to be possible three crews of 2-seaters. The hats are the kicker. There are 2 guys with the busdriver hat and one with the envelope hat (also called the c*nt cap). There are also 3 guys with leather baseball caps with headsets. I am guessing the three with the ball caps on are back-seaters. Which airplane...who knows, but I am thinking if it may be a Pacific theater shot because they aren't bundled up and they are wearing mae wests more prominently.

    That is true, but 2 of those guys are wearing headsets for radios. Why would you have 2 radio operators?
