What Eagleston3 is doing on Fold3…

  • This C-47 wears French cocades... The clue is the flash on the rudder, not on the fin. The narrox "invasion stripes" are the mark of the French Armée de l'air.

  • I'm sorry but it's not a Belgian Stampe... It's a beautiful French Stampe bearing the white fuselage band of training airplanes. Photo probably taken at Marrakech (Morocco). In the background are some A-24s of the flying school.

  • I think that are Hispano-Suiza HS 404, 20 mm, cannons the same as those mounted on Hawker Typhoon and, later, on Hawker Tempest.

  • I agree. This is Marseille. In foreground is "La Tourette". On the right is the "Vieux Port" (Old Harbor). In the background, the two churches that we see are, on the left, the "Clocher des Accoules" and on the right, just behind La Touette, the "Église des Réformés" at the very end of the "Canebière".

  • Eagleston3 Not a K-4 because of the small wheel bumps on the wings and the fixed long tailwheel.
