LC-Lot-11612-18: Malayan Campaign, December 1941-January 1942.   American Fighter Planes Over Malaya.  American fighter planes have arrived in Malaya after month and assembly has continued at high speed but without publicity.  Singaporeans have become used to the long, grey crates passing through the streets and hardly notice the roar of engine and whistle of wind past fuselage as the fighters are rested near and over the city.  But the planes are here in great numbers – distributed strategically throughout Malaya.  Shown are Brewster Buffalo fighters over Malaya coasts.   Photograph released circa 1942.
