    By the way the small hint in the image is the angle the image was taken out of the front of the aircraft and the prop spinner.
    Must be a twin engine design not a 4 as at that angle you would not have seen the spinner on a 4 as the engine would be to far along the wing.
    The B-25 is the only twin I can think of that flew over Japan due to range issues.Please correct me if I'm wrong.
    Another small hint is the quality of the image.I believe this is not taken from a USAAF Recon grade camera as they stripped the B-25's to save weight.Taken with a hand held I feel,which explains the angle of the shot.
    Cheers fellas

    General Georg Stumme.
    Two things of interest happened to this man.
    1.He took responibility for loosing the Battle Plans for the Eastern Front on the 19th June 1942.The was found guilty and sentenced to 5 years incaceration.Von Bock secured his release and he was transfered to Rommel(whom he looks a litttle like) in Africa.
    2.On the 24th October 1942 the died of a heart attack after an allied air raid in the El Alamein area.

    Correct, except his death was caused whilst out in a command car which was attacked by British troops, who killed one of his companions and caused his driver to drive off at a mad speed to escape and Stumme is thought to have fallen out of the car (and died of a heart attack).
