Douglas A-20A Havoc light bombers from visiting squadrons of the 48th Bombardment Group (Light) out of Will Rogers Field, Oklahoma, occupy the ramp at Portland Air Base in order to participate in the big air defense maneuver of late October, 1941. They wear the 48th Bomb Group’s 48B designation on the tail as Number 72 (nearest) runs up its engines while onlookers of the then-new aircraft watch with interest. (142nd Wing History Archive)
