Scanned photo or not, this is a very evocative rendering of a US-occupied Pacific coral atoll at the height of WWII, and a wonderful historical record. As well as the DC-3/C-47 it contains a rare view of a Grumman J2F Duck amphibian in the foreground and a line-up of B-24 Liberators down the strip. What a fantastic photo! Keep the scanned historic pictures coming!
A great photo from my favourite era in aviation.

Beautiful shot!

I love these historic images! Have a number of grandpa's black and white personal snapshots of Pearl Harbor tarmac, with several "types", from very late WWII era.
These photos are precious. There were hundreds of bases like these in New Guinea / Solomon's each one having a thousand stories.

Very cool rendering of one of our out-bases in the Pacific during WWII--Great reminder for the rest of us on Veterans Day!

If it wasn't for the palm trees I would think they were in snow somewhere..

It's the details that matter.

The layout and color of the tents among the trees. The wash bench area away from the tents. The various equipment.

Photos like this don't usually make the cut. It will be the picture of one main, primary subject.

This one shows the mundane, daily routine of the location. Good choice.

And having to work on those planes in the South Pacific heat was pure hell. They tried to do all repairs at night when it was somewhat cooler.
Maybe the Army Air Corp buys had the ability to work at night. My dad told me when he was working on the Marine's F4U or the PBJ-1. He would be working in shorts and without a shirt on. And he would lean is M-1 on the left main gears and is 1911 was at is right waist band in case he had to stop and fight.
