The painting glorifies a Boeing B17 Flying Fortress downing a German Messerschmidt (Me109) in the skies over Germany just eight miles from the "IP" or initial point where the bombardier will drop his payload on the target. Not seen in this view are the 100 other B17's flying in formation with the heavy bomber. His engine knocked out & on fire the German pilot has opened his canopy in preparation of bailing out.
