By the time (today 22/06/2019) all the images with the proper research that i have, are these. I’m sick right now (herniated disk) and even with more photos on my HD, i want to properly search for the origins and their stories.

fortaleza-crash-landed-brazilian-af-curtiss-p-40-warhawk-fighter-plane-copy This is a picture, without research, i just have her around my files and i don’t know if it is from WW2 or 1950’s. But FAB (Força Aérea Brasileira / Brazillian Air Force) used PBY Catalina, P-40 (Warhawks) and P-47 Thunderbolt a lot during the war.

The location of the P-40 image : Fortaleza (Ceará state) - maybe the airplane suffered a crash during tests/training.

A really interesting episode from Brazillian war effort. A little evidence of a counter-assault by the Brazillian Forces, where 10,000 germans were made POW by one tactical movement. Some say that the americans negotiated the capture “before” the brazillian troop movement, others say, that FEB troopers, discovered the german positions “outside” the allied inteligence confirming the enemy positions, so the movement, was made, outside US plans, but, with the outstanding results, made it a “formal” maneuver after.

On the picture - German Officer captured, talking with a Brazillian trooper.
