October 14, 1943, deep into Germany and with their fighter escort gone, the B-17 bombers of the 8th Air Force are in the fight of their lives. More than 300 “unrelenting” Luftwaffe fighters are trying to make them do the unthinkable: to turn back. The ball-bearing factories at Schweinfurt lay ahead, it’s a crucial target, and that leaves the 8th with one option: to fight their way through the maelstrom. Jousts ensue at 23,000’ as JG 3 ace Alfred Surau attacks in his Bf-109G. 60 bombers will fall, including this B-17, “Wabbit-Twacks III,” of the 96th Bomb Group. “Black Thursday,” will be the costliest mission in 8th Air Force history, but in a mere six days the “Mighty Eighth” will be back in action, and within five months American bombs will rain on Berlin. This Limited Edition Print has been signed by four aviators who fought over Europe during WWII: Roland Martin, the pilot of the B-17 “The Iron Maiden,” Fred Wiese, the pilot of the B-17 “The Little One,” Mitch Mischler, runner on the B-17 “Pride of the Yanks, and Bill Roche, gunner on the B-17 “Lady Luck III.” Includes a Certificate of Authenticity. Measures about 32”w x 22.5”h.
