  An A-36 Invader dive-bomber on what looks like a staged propaganda shot. Notice the extreme exhaust staining. This picture was taken at a training unit in Louisiana.
  Betty Jean was a Mustang Mk IA originally purchased by the RAF but retained by the USAAF. She is seen here in April 1944 on the Anzio beachead. Notice the remnant of flag on rudder. The serial is repeated in small black numbers on the tail as the original number was hidden by the bars added to the fuselage roundel.
