P-47 Thunderbolt (U-07) 514th Fighter Squadron, 406th Fighter Group at the 'Advanced Landing Ground 6' near Utah Beach, Normandy, 21st June 1944 only a few days after the station opened. (It appears to have crashed on take-off as the anti-personnel mines are still hanging under the wings, and the twisted blades show the engine was running.) (Colourised by Doug)
