They look like they might be from Korea.

As for ID, what are you asking? The truck? The unit? The location?

I can tell you for certain that the center photo is definitely post war.

That plane is a C-119 Flying Boxcar which didn't get off the ground till 1947. You can tell its not a C-82 packet by the dorsal fin on the boom.

I also don't think that its part of the Berlin Airlift... as C-119s were not really in full service by 1948.
