An array of B-17's parked on the field.
A B-29 visits the base at Glatton. The B-29 visited many bases in the UK as a ruse to make German intellibence think that the 8th Air Force was preparing to replace the B-17's with the B-29's.
Another view of the B-29. Everyone wanted to get a peak at this plane.
Still another view of the B-29 preparing for takeoff.
A B-17G on the hardstand being refueled. The maintenance ground crew tent can be seen in the background.
Plane s/n 44-6518. Cannot determine any history of this plane except that it was salvaged May 13, 1945.
