Beginning work to change an engine on R6D 572 at Naples. One is left with the impression that problems developed before or during the flight on which Ray Schenone was about to depart in the previous photo.

Cremembers in flight gear appear to be pitching in to change the engine on R6D 572 at Naples. That would be in keeping with long held practice (tradition?) wherein flight crews were considered to be self sufficient when on missions away from home base.

(schenone)

A change of scene to one closer to homebase. Ray Schenone (l), Steve_______ (c), and Harry Falaska (r) take time out to visit the Rock of Gibraltar.
