Close Air Support Codes and a Combat Photographer with nerves of steel :)

Came across this while browsing the web, pretty cool!


The codes were laid out with fabric panels to coordinate and direct air support.

Maybe you have seen this photo before, a Corsair attacks ground targets on Okinawa


Did you know how this photo was taken? Combat photographer David Douglas Duncan took it from a drop tank attached to a P-38! 😁



Here you can see the whole bunch, four F4U corsairs of VMF-323 “Death Rattlers” and the P-38
