Photo #7,000 Reached, Contest Winner Named
A milestone has just been reached by the World War II Database: the WW2 photo gallery has just reached 7,000 photos! About a week ago, on a whim, a contest was started for WW2DB Facebook Page fan community to guess what the topic of the photo is. Photograph number 7,000 turned out to be, and we are pleasantly surprised at this outcome, a beautiful photo of a Mustang fighter in full color!
The photo's caption is "Mustang Mk I fighter being test flown in Inglewood, California, United States in 1942 before being delivered to the British Royal Air Force Photographer". The photographer was Mark Sherwood, and this photo was dug up from the United States Library of Congress.
The term of the contest was that whoever comes closest to the actual photo will be named the winner. So without further adieu, the winner is... Daniel Buchmeier! His guess was a B-17 bomber; not quite there, but he came pretty close! World War II Database is eager to find out which history related website he would like to share with us.
This milestone reached by WW2DB is a major one that cannot be reached without the continual support from the site's visitors -- Thank you!
