Title

A Serious Colonel Laughlin in Front of his Last P-47 at Straubing Air Base, Germany

Subject

A serious look from a usually jovial man

Description

Although he was known as a very jovial person, Colonel Laughlin had a serious side that he never really showed in front of cameras. Here he looks out with a very severe and serious expression while standing in front of his final P-47 in his flight suit. He was probably surveying the damage his own group had delivered to the base only a few weeks before, on April 27
