The original caption reads:
Quote :
The 11th Airborne Division spends Christmas at Manawarat, on Leyte Island in the Philippines, and to properly celebrate the occasion turkey was flown in and shown here is a Vultee L-5 dropping fresh bread packed in barracks bags.

As someone on the Warbird Information Exchange (WIX) mentioned - that gives a different twist to "flour bombing."
