Results from this AI coloured photo via myheritage.com didn't come out superbly well, but it is fascinating to see how the AI takes a decent guess at the right time of year. This comes from the press day at Catterick in the spring of 1942. The Norwegians put on a fine show, including a little airshow.

While never 100% historically accurate, these AI videos via myheritage.com do bring these young men back to live in new ways. Marius Eriksen would hopefully have appreciated this animation of his long lost friend Jan Eigil Løfsgaard. Løfsgaard was shot down late 1942, most likely taken capture by German forces and then murdered while trying to escape.

Perhaps admins fave AI coloured photo via myheritage.com

When the first batch of crew departed Canada for Britain and what would become 331 Squadron, their convoy was hit by German torpedoes. As you see clearly on this photo.

More from myheritages.com and their AI system. Here's Leif Lundsten, animated with nice results. This photo was taken during the early years of war, most likely in Canada in 1941 or 1942 prior to departure to Britain.

This came out really well using myheritage.com AI colouring system. A captured Focke Wulf 190 visits North Weald. The Norwegians are all over the aircraft as you can tell by the amount of people surrounding the German fighter, but also by taking notice of all the bicycles!

What a very rare photograph indeed. Visited the old site of RAF Malling few years back, with the control tower now partially converted into a coffee shop. On the wall a story of when FW-190 mistakenly landed during fog, pilot thinking he was back on the continent. To his surprise the Luftwaffe pilot ran from FW-190 into Peter Townsend no less. Just wondering if this was the captured FW-190 involved .. www.kentonline.co.uk/maidstone/news/raf-west-malling-welcomed-many-types-of-aircraft-during-the-2...

BTW looks like the pilot with his flying boots and lifejacket standing by the end of the wing. Anyone able to identify him. Must be recorded somewhere. Presumably an RAF pilot, not a Norwegian.

Im sure your there somewhere geoff

Recently several photos have been posted after conversion from B/W to colour by using a data programme.

Great photo!

Do we know the date of this photo?

Nice EWS sign on the hut!
