Aussie US Wings - Revenge of the barbie

Recommended Posts

Patrick got me inspired to reshoot my ozzies. Hopefully something interesting for all. The "G" wing I think is for gunner, not glider. Based on theater and often India and China local makers used "G" and "R" for gunner and radio. Also more consistent with British nomenclature. But my guess. No evidence.
