Takao is correct.
I'd bet this is a screencap from a flight sim game like War Thunder put through a filter to make it look old.
The graphics on IL-2 are very very good, and a lot of screenshots look very real without photoshopping them.
Forgot to add that the Romanian fighter is an IAR-80 or IAR-81.
It was not "snapped" from a "bomber." The P-38s were the "bombers" on the low-level ground attack mission flown on June 10,1944.
As per the original posting
Ok. My offering of what might have happened was just a guess. So technically I was right, the pic was taken from a bomber in the form of a P-38. Cool pic either way.
I'm calling BS...
Technically, you are wrong...
The P-38 was very demanding aircraft of the pilot's attention, and had what was known as a "busy" cockpit. Couple this with the demands of low level flying and air combat, and that P-38 pilot has absolutely no free time to be taking pretty pictures. He is too busy trying to stay alive and/or get some kills. The only photos the P-38 pilot will be taking is with his gun camera.
Bull shit on what, my assumption of what I believed what the picture was about? Or that I think that it is a cool pic regardless of what really happened?
Whatever. Happy now?
The Internet Rule of "Too Good To Be True": It is.
Friend of mine took me on the flight path in his boat when I was goofing off in Long Beach.
He tried. Cigarette racer. Didn't quite make it, I believe.
Enough talk. Let's see more pichers!
Man, they made me retire just because my heart keeps stopping.
Not really...It is a rather ho-hum screenie, and the title of the thread is "Cool pix!"
Mate I was just calling BS on the pic...keep the pictures coming!
