A flight of P-51s from the 353rd Fighter Squadron, operating out of Criqueville, France, was patrolling the skies over Berriere on June 29th, 1944. Newcomer 1st Lt. Kenneth Dahlberg was flying "Beantown Banshee," a P-51B "borrowed" from another pilot. Shortly after 1400 hours they encountered a large number of yellow-nosed Focke Wulf 190s. As the two formations meshed into one swirling mass of Mustangs and Focke-Wulfs, a '190 curved in on the tail of Dahlberg's flight leader. Dahlberg slid in behind the black-crossed fighter and fired a burst that caused the German to break off. Dahlberg stayed with his opponent in a twisting, turning combat, each trying to maneuver into position to get a hit, as they spiraled down to almost tree-top level. Finally, Dahlberg scored a crucial burst and the Focke-Wulf dove into the ground. Lt. Dahlberg later described the German pilot as "my most formidable air opponent of the war." This limited edition Print has been signed by the late Kenneth Dahlberg along with the artist, the late Roy Grinnell. Includes a Certificate of Authenticity and measures about 30”w x 24”h.
