Email From Mary Ann Kelley I see you have this plane (Serial number 41-31717 B26 Marauder) listed on your site.
It was flown by my grandfather, Captain Charles V. Hinton, Sr. until June 1945 when he was transferred to the occupation forces in Berlin.
It crashed upon landing on July 9, 1945 by George Rinker.
I am attaching a photo for you.
I am curious how you are using the photos.
I see you mention skins and a game but I couldn't quite figure out what you are referring to - is it an online war game?
Warm regards,
Mary Ann Kelley
