A few days ago, AngryMike posted a link
to some of these awesome colourised images.
I thought they were fascinating. Here's a few more of them...
"The Unknown Soldier"
Lieutenant (later Lieutenant Commander) Walter Lewis Chewning of Cynwyd, Pennsylvania, (February 19, 1914 - February 4, 1990) steps on the burning fuel tank of an F6F-3 Hellcat flown by Ensign (later Lieutenant) Byron Milton Johnson of Potter, Nebraska (May 19, 1920 - February 20, 2005) to effect a successful rescue of the pilot on November 10, 1943.

You can see the rescue @ 5:35 of THIS Video
Lot's more images below the brake.
