JU-88 ?

I have a strike photo with another aircraft taken with the photo. Possibly a JU-88. Any idea if this is correct.
Thanks Richard

Re: JU-88 ?

That wing certainly looks Junker. Do you have a date? Could also be a 188.

Hows the weather in Squaw Fallout these days?

Re: JU-88 ?

Looks like a Halifax to me. The overall proportions do not seem to match a twin.

Re: JU-88 ?

I would say yes, it is a Ju88.

Re: JU-88 ?

The shadows from the flash and vibration of the camera are playing a few tricks but I would concur that it is a Ju-88.

A Halifax Graham? I only see two engines? Unless, someone was using a Manchester.

Re: JU-88 ?

I think it's a Halifax too. I can see a tail turret as well as four engines.

Re: JU-88 ?

The wing profile does not look like that of a Halifax. The only other aircraft with a similar wing is a B-17. They were not in service at this time unless a USAAF aircraft was part of this raid.

Re: JU-88 ?

Dear gentleman,

never this is a Halifax - also not an Ju88. Note the shape of the elevator.


To compare :
