Title

Unloading Wing of Greater Rockford Airplane from C-46 Cargo Plane.

Description

Five men in the C-46 cargo plane that transported Bert Hassell's Stinson aircraft back to Rockford and several more men outside on the runway unload one of the Greater Rockford airplane's wings. Photographers stand by (lower portion) to record the work and the crowds. A handwritten note in purple ink on the back of the photograph by Mary Hassell Lyons (Bert Hassell's daughter) reads, "Rockford Airport - unloading wings - airport employees, OX-5 friends - QB's - Polish Air Force (local air group)."
