There are 6 photos of Fairchild PT-19 mono plane primary training planes . plus another 5 photos with planes ...including at least one with fighters in Japan .

There is a photo taken a Bofu airfield Japan , captioned as being where kamikaze pilots were trained ...there are several uniformed photos of John and friends . A few photos of Japanese locals, a photo showing a bomb damaged railway station in Japan  ..and an aerial photo taken above a Japanese airfield in 1945 .
