Description

Duxford became home of the 78th Fighter Group when they arrived in England with their P-47B Thunderbolts in 1943. The objective of the American fighter units was to gain air superiority over the Luftwaffe in support of their daylight bombing campaign. By the end of 1944 they achieved their objective.

It is the spring of 1944, and with the Normandy invasion just days away, P-47D Thunderbolts of the 78th Fighter Group, already painted with invasion markings, depart Duxford en route for the north coast of France, and a low-level strafing mission

This superb release by the hugely talented Richard Taylor commemorates the valiant contribution of the 78th Fighter Group during WWII.
