1943: Boxted Airdrome, Colchester, England

Returning from a mission 386th Bomb Group Martin B-26's are shown on the taxiway in daisy-chain fashion as they head for their respective hardstands. Note waist guns are protruding down from both sides of the fuselage.

A Westland Lysander can be seen parked just off the right wing tip of the B-26 in the foreground. The RAF used Lysander Aircraft during night time landings of intelligence agents in the occupied countries.
