465th Fighter Squadron plane ID part 1
I have an album of photos from a GI that was with the 465th
Fighter Squadron on IE Shima and Okinawa in 1945-46 and need some help in identifying some of the planes in his photos. I don’t think that all the planes were part of the 465th
since some appear to be bombers and even a seaplane. Most have nose art and if you know any history for those specific planes I would be interested in hearing about that also.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
Since I have 6 planes that need ID, check the 2nd
