English: Wrecks of Italian Regia Aeronautica aircraft at Castel Benito Airdrome, Tripolis, Libya, in early 1943. The two fuselages in front are Fiat G.50 fighters.
Original caption (Library of Congress): "Enemy air equipment and installations took a heavy pounding from bombers of the United States Army air forces as they pursued Marshal Erwin Rommel's retreating Afrika Korps through Libya and Tripoli to the Tunisian coast. Wrecked Axis aircraft, victims of bombing and strafing lie piled up on Castel N(B)enito Airdrome, awaiting arrival of expert salvage crews to denude the wreckage of any usable parts, the remainder to be turned into scrap."
Date 1943(1943)
