This photo by the 58th Wing Air Photo Unit shows the high level of activity during Crossroads

|P-61 Black Widow. There are only 4 of these aircraft now existing.||Read about the Mid Atlantic Air Museum's P-61 recovery and restoration project.||C-46 Commando - another rare bird.||The venerable DC-3 - not rare but greatly admired.|
|C-54's were still in service when I was there in '72. Anyone know when they were retired?||C-82 "Flying Boxcar". Its descendent, the C-119, is better known.||B-29. Several of these were modified for photo purposes.|
Finally an A-26 Invader and B-17. More to come and, as time permits, some commentary on this important era in the history of Kwaj and the world.
