Pilots take their planes/1943

Pilots take their planes/1943

With grim determination, the pilots of Air Squadron 12 on board the USS Saratoga walk to their fighter planes for a mission against Rabaul in the South Pacific in November of 1943. The photo, taken by Wayne Miller, appears in the book Steichen at War. The expression on the faces of these young airmen reflect the immense seriousness and intense focus that they carried with them into battle.
