Another German He 177 Bomber Picture From George White’s Collection

 He 177

This is a rare picture of another damaged Heinkel He 177 bomber from my dad’s collection.

It is just captioned “German Bomber”.  There is no indication of a Werk Number or a location where this picture was taken.

He 177 back

This photo however clearly shows the four engine configuration driving the two big four bladed propellers.

Unfortunately there are no 403 Wolf Squadron Erks playing in this aircraft.

John Le May’s collection – Never seen before pictures

Pictures taken from the CD John LeMay sent me. The captions were written by him.


Spitfires waiting for next engagement orders


The birth of “Pizza Hut” no, not exactly, that’s one of the kitchen ovens.


Group Captain Turner became our Commanding Officer somewhere on the Continent…the other guy, Flying Officer Kearns was one of the pilots. Incidentally the same G.C. Turner turned up renting an apartment right behind our home on Laval St. in Vanier (Eastview) No need to say that he did not stay there very long.
