Fw190s of II./JG I charge into the bomber stream as B-17 Flying Fortresses of the 100th Bomb Group carry out the first successful daylight raid on Berlin, March 6, 1944. With throttles wide open, 56th Fighter Group P-47 Thunderbolts come hurtling down to intercept and B-17 gunners are working overtime; the air is full of cordite, smoke, jagged pieces of flying metal and hot lead. We are in the midst of one of the fiercest aerial battles of the war.
Joining artist Nicolas Trudgian in signing each print is a P-47 Ace who flew escort missions to Berlin and two pilots from the Bloody One Hundredth, who flew their B-17s to Berlin on March 6, 1944:
Colonel MORTON MAGOFFIN
Captain CHARLES ‘HONG KONG’ WILSON
First Lieutenant ED McKAYR
Released in 1997 this print has been sold out for a number of years so this is a great opportunity for enthusiasts to add it to their collections.
