Hangarfartyg i färg

Inlägg av Trismegistus » 14 jul 2019 20:03

En synnerligen trevlig fotoserie från amerikanska National Archives, taget på ett par olika amerikanska hangarfartyg under kriget. Här kan man se vardagslivet, utrustningen och kläderna i färg, dvs med betydligt mer detaljer än vad man kan utröna i svart-vita bilder. Det är först nu man kan se skillnad på "hook release men"; "hot papas"; "plane directors" o.s.v.

Bildtexterna är från fotografierna, vilket gör att de nödvändigtvis inte behöver vara 100% korrekta.
