Great historical picture, thanks for sharing. Do you know what year, Peter?
Roy Hunte
Nice shot! Is Vincent Donato your dad Peter?

Thanks for the votes and comments and, yes, Vincent is my dad - I'll ask him tonight what year the photo was taken (we see him almost every Sat. night.)
Paul Wisgerhof
The great news from Peter Donato is that his dad made it home. Lots of bomber crews didn't.
Alan Brown
Great photo! Thanks for the reminder.
Thanks for that!

My late father-in-law was an instructor pilot in Boise, Idaho before the end of the war. Later, as a controller at Cleveland Center, I ran into 4 controllers who had flown B-24s out of Foggia, Italy but had never met until the consolidation of Buffalo, Detroit, Cleveland and Pittsburgh Centers in the early '60s.

I have that exact same photo in my living room. My father is the copilot, Robert Hertell. What a surprise to find it online. Thanks for sharing it. Now I know the names of everyone in the photo.
The Greatest Generation!! Thank You For Your Service, Men!!
