A mouth watering photo of the M-5 and the B-18 Bolo bomber. Note the beautiful Semi Gloss Yellow.

The good old days. My guest of honor in my Jeeps and CCKW when participating in Veterans Day Parades was Peter Marini, a B-18 Enlisted Pilot who flew submarine patrol missions from the Gulf of Mexico to Florida from 1942 thru 1945.

They must be handling the bombsight, the Staff Sgt has been watching too many John Wayne movies, note the holster.
