In: Aircraft, U.S. Air Force, WWII
This Northrop P-61 Black Widow crew chief of Oris Johnson’s “Green Bats” Night Fighter Squaron decided it was time for a well-earned bit of relaxation and his reaction to news on V-E day.

Great pictures of an under-rated plane.
Indeed….Next to the XB-70, The P-61 is my fav, I take pictures of it everytime I visit the Airforce museum in Dayton.
Googling Black Widow I found some nice pictures of Scarlet Johanson. It's a pity you didn't include her.
Excellent set of piccies Rick. the first aircraft designed from the outset as a night fighter. you also found an F15 Reporter recon version with the bubble canopy Cool.
Is in China and has been 'for sale' for many years….rumour is that they have 2 widows…both in bad shape from sitting outside.
I wish somebody would buy them and save them
