Rear view of Curtiss C-46 Commando in China

This atmospheric picture gives us a rear view of a Curtiss C-46 Commando through a gate somewhere in China, probably at Yangkai in China, where the squadron was based from January 1944 until September 1945.

These pictures come from the collection of Sydney Lester, who served as a Staff Sergeant in the 491st Bombardment Squadron (341st Bombardment Group). Many thanks to his son Ron Lester for providing us with this pictures.
