Full Description & Details
This photo was taken by my grandfather Cecil Barthelow while on a B-52 bombing mission supporting the 1st Marines sometime before or after Guadalcanal. None of the witnesses (4 full crews of B-52s) believe this to have been any Japanese aircraft because of its speed and shape, nor any American aircraft because they could not accomplish any form of contact. This photograph had long been in a small diary and scrapbook of Cecil's, which was recently discovered on a basement bookshelf, and has not yet been subject to study or research.
This picture was not taken by me, but by my grandfather, Cecil Barthelow.
