This was my Father's, TSgt. James A. Leddy Jr (Radio Operator), aircraft. Caption Reads: "On the morning of 19 Feb 45, twenty-five B-24s of the 494th BG, based on Angaur Island in the Carolines, took off for a cooperation raid on the Licanan Airdrome in the Southern part of Mindanao, Philippine Islands.  Here one of the bombers drones steadily on toward the target area."
