Title

Monfalcone
B-24 with engine fire

Description

Daylight vertical aerial photograph of an operation in progress on Porto Monfalcone with Solvay works and CRDA facilities, orientated with West at the upper edge. The ground detail is clear and explosions and smoke cover much of the port itself with some smoke and bomb craters in the fields nearby. To the left of centre the capsized MV Ausonia can be seen with the splash of a bomb falling nearby. In the lower part of the image is a RAF B-24 KK320/V Liberator trailing smoke from it's port, inner engine, which appears to be missing its propeller.
