    These pics are from the IWM archive but posted on the BBC website:

    In pictures: American airmen in England during World War Two - BBC News

    The photo showing the cannon hole in the P-47 prop is pretty amazing. The others are more human interest, although the one showing the airman just after returning from a mission with blood on his face is pretty haunting.

    Thought I'd share in case they're of interest.
