MISSION COMPLETED (Secondary Market Copy)
by Robert Taylor
Having survived a barrage of flak on the run-in to the target, this B-17 has taken a pounding from enemy fighters on the way home. She is handling badly and has been losing height all the way back from Germany. Her crew have fought all the way to bring their ship home and they are exhausted.
Robert’s emotive piece, set in the tranquillity of the English countryside, shows farmworkers in the wheatfields pause as the mighty warbird thunders overhead.
Behind, another damaged B-17 will make it back to baase today. Another mission completed!
