Bataan 1 & Bataan 2 Arrive at le shima NEVER RELEASED


Recommended Posts

On July 28 I had the pleasure of interviewing a 94 year old mechanic of the 333rd fighter squadron 318th fighter group. In August of 45 he witnessed Bataan 1 & Bataan 2 "it was a total shock to us all, we were not informed of their arrival" unlike many other witnessed he set up to record the event "I got my camera and got as close as I can, the event was guarded so I did my best to sneak in" according to him both planes were heavily guarded and sat on the Tarmac over night then disappeared "I have no idea what happened" here are a handful of his photos, scanned versions will be coming soon
