Other Than Tanks ------ The GTBC Bomb Service Truck by Ford. More commonly referred to as the Burma Jeep, this vehicle had the sole purpose of towing bombs around airbases. Non-combat vehicles with such limited roles rarely receive a spotlight in history, but that is exactly why this vehicle is showcased today.  In the beginning of WWII, the US realized they needed a smaller more transportable bomb towing vehicle to more effectively participate in the strategic bombing campaigns. The answer was the GTBC. Serving primarily in the Pacific theatre, the vehicle was well appreciated for its small profile and integrated crane.  Towing a train of individuals bomb carts (one pictured), the Burma Jeep could tow and load the entire internal bomb bay contents of the primary early and mid-war aircraft. Crews would pull the bombs out to the aircraft, winch and hoist them into the bomb bay using the crane, and then withdraw the vehicle. Unlike larger profile vehicles, the Burma Jeep was easily concealed, extremely appreciated during the early operations of the Pacific, when the Japanese maintained air superiority or parity around many of the islands. The Burma Jeep continued to serve after WWII, participating in Korea and only being completely retired in 1967.

BELLY OF THE BEAST Inspired by Kendrick Lamar's DAMN album. ellisld.weebly.com It's one thing to have a friend or parent that is a negative influence, but to be born into, and be raised by a city that is a bad influence is an even deeper wound. This is why i think their is no greater example of my personal philosophy; (unless you've lived every second of someones life you cannot  judge their actions, as you can't feel how they feel, and every bad decision has a open wound of the past behind it.) #philosophy #poetry #policebrutality #kendricklamar #crime #blacklivesmatter #racism #art #damn #drawing #sketch #painting #cartoon #illustration #guncontrol #war #music #injustice #racistcops #topimpabutterfly #rap #behumble #america #ghetto #compton #chiraq #newyork #goodkidmadcity #blackpower #animation

Posted Dec 17, 2013 by vlogger Cameras capture the incredible moment when a B24 Bomber plane is hit and crashing in flames. This plane was nicknamed "Brief". Serial Number 44-42058. It had taken off from Angaur Airfield, flying on a bombing mission against anti-aircraft installations on Koror, Palau Islands. Whilst over Koror, the B-24 was hit by anti-aircraft fire . The fuselage fell in a flat spiral until it crashed. 10 crew members were onboard. 9 were killed in the crash except the Navigator, 2nd Lt Wallace F. Kaufman. He was captured by the Japanese and executed.  #ww2 #war #america #japan #aircraft #aa #fire #december #b24 #bomber #kia #prisoner #camera
