B17- Last Home
Digital Art - Digital Art Print
‘Show me the way to go home’ *
A lone B17 makes a late, late return home guided by a P47 ‘little friend’ as a guardian angel. The very last of the sun lights the cloud tops but it is dark and murky down into the approach to the home base. With so very little flying experience the B17 crews not only had a hard time dealing with combat over Europe but also learning to cope with the generally dreadful UK winter weather. This B17, lagging behind the main formation, will struggle to get home even with the helping hand from an experienced P47 pilot.
