PT 506 – in color

PT 506 in color

PT 506 hits full acceleration in this stunning, very rare color photo that was recently posted by Frank Andruss.  The speed, sleekness, and deck details of the PTs are  accentuated through the use of color film.  With vivid immediacy, the power and seaworthiness of the PT boats is perfectly captured in this compelling image.

My thanks to Frank for sharing this treasure with the extended PT boat network.  Frank’s extensive work to preserve and promote the legacy of the Mosquito Fleet has been a great gift to us all.  Keep up the great work, Frank!
