About the Photos

Most of the photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs, 20 to 200 megabytes in size) from the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) Many were digitized by LOC contractors using a Sinar studio back. They are adjusted by your webmaster for contrast and color in Photoshop before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here.

Dad: WW2

Dad: WW2

This Photo was taken by my dad in France or Germany in 1944. View full size.

Your Ju-87 seems to be pictured at Stuttgart

On the tail in this and your other pic you can see the Work no. 100323. This makes the aircraft a Junkers Ju-87 D7 of the LUFTWAFFE, ??+?? (no unit codes), listed as in service until May of 45 (doesn't mean it wasn't captured before), captured by US forces at Stuttgart.

The famed Stuka

Late-model Junkers Ju-87D "Stuka" dive bomber in what appears to be good working order, lacking its characteristic wheel covers. These were pretty old technology by 1944.
