About the Image

Aluminium Overcast by Pat Speirs

B17 Series �Aluminium Overcast� An illustration of the near truth of the joking comment about the 8th USAAF B17 formations - the lead section of the 832nd Sqdn covers the sky when outbound to European targets. Part of the 486th Bombardment Group based at Sudbury, England, this group was in the midst of all the WW2 action from mid-1944 onwards. During the group operations in 1944-45 the 486th lost 23 aircraft and a further 29 so badly damaged they were written off. Almost all of these losses were due to flak (although at least six were caused by collision) but none were caused by Luftwaffe fighter action - a reflection on the severe attrition the Luftwaffe suffered at the hands of the 8th Air Force.
