About the Print:
11 March 1945 - 33 B-17G Flying Fortresses of the 447th Bomb Group of the U.S. Army 8th Air Force take evasive action on their mission to Hamburg, Germany. Taking off from England at 0920 that morning, the heavy bombers fought their way through the German Luftwaffe only to find the target obscured by heavy cloud cover. Once the bombers discovered a slight clearance in the cloud pattern, they unleashed 78 tons of bombs directly on target. The resulting explosions caused such an upheaval of heat that the remaining cloud cover was entirely dissipated. That day, all 33 aircraft from the 447th Bomb Group returned home.
Each Limited Edition Framed Print is hand-crafted by Artist Craig Tinder using the highest quality materials and archival techniques. Each piece of artwork is created on-demand and typically takes 1-2 weeks for delivery.
