A nice collection of original colour photos of a wide variety of (mostly American) aircraft from various theatres of World War Two taken by Jack Canary.

Jack Canary was a Tech Rep with North American Aviation in China during World War Two. After the War, he continued to work with NAA and also built and restored aircraft. He worked as a consultant on the film “Tora, Tora, Tora” and was killed while flying a PT-22 for the film in 1968.

Thanks Si, yes a wide variety of aircraft there, including some rarities like the Stirling in Indian colours and the Polikarpov monoplanes. Some nice alternative schemes there.
