World War 2 Aviation Pics - The Right Place at the Right Time

Came across a fantastic series of pictures at Vintage Wings of Canada. Entitled "The Right Place at the Right Time," it's filled with photos taken at just the right instant. This one is maybe the most chilling, but there are other enlightening shots. For instance, I never knew that some of the WW2 carriers had hanger-deck catapults.

Enjoy.

Bayou Renaissance Man (who gave me the original link) had this post up with info about the photo of the dead TBM gunner.

He was buried in the aircraft.

Bayou Renaissance Man always has some good stuff. He's a South African expat who served in the SADF, and later as a pastor over there. BTDT in a big way. He's a writer too, with some sci-fi, and now a western series.
