B17s of 511 Squadron, based at Polebrook, settle down to an early morning transit in the short winter days of 1943-44. With daylight at a premium at that time of the year in northern Europe many missions started in darkness and would not return until the last of the daylight faded some hours later.
One of the early units to arrive in England with the USAAF this squadron commenced operations in May 1943 and re-deployed to the US in June 1945.
