shemya photos - page 3
Robert Leavitt spent time on Shemya in 1946-47. He took these photos with a Kodak Brownie camera. (NOTE: These images are the original size, there are no larger images)
Three P-40’s were enroute to either China or Russia. Robert never did find out for sure. Everybody was tight-lipped about them.
This was the only P-51 to arrive on Shemya. Note in the background is a tall antenna mast and the gin pole we used to raise it with.
This was the Shemya Control Tower as it was in 1946-47.
