Here is a series of photos taken in World War Two taken on Iwo Jima, mostly of aircraft activity. Great pictures, uncensored, be warned.

Due to the graphic nature of some photos this may not be safe for work.

Shamelessly stolen from another pilot website. :(

However, you can Google "Iwo Jima aircraft photos" and find it that way as well.

Great photos! Thanks!

Not Iwo Jima, but I thought they may be of some interest. Bougainville and Rabaul, when my father was in the army, somewhere around late 45' early 46' during mopping up operations...

Well found. :ok:

Judging by the composition and lighting of many of the photos I would say that they were taken by some of the professional photographers that the US forces used to record their activities. :D

They are a fantastic record of a deeply unpleasant time that is worth recording for posterity. :sad:
