Aircraft of the Oregon (Air) National Guard in the immediate post-World War II period undergo maintenance at Portland Air Base, circa 1947. Seen clockwise starting at the top are a C-47A Skytrain transport, P-51D Mustang fighter, A-26C Invader attack bomber and AT-6C Texan trainer. The lack of national insignia on the C-47 is indicative of the transition period for Guard aircraft markings seen as the ANG re-established itself after WWII. Perhaps a Caretaker is busy showing the other men in the picture a point about aircraft maintenance. (Courtesy 142nd Fighter Wing History Archives)
