Artist's Description

In the flak-filled sky over occupied France on January 23, 1943, Memphis Belle the U.S. Army Air Forces Boeing B-17F, the most famous Flying Fortress in history, had approached a submarine base at Lorient flying in formation, amid one of four groups of bombers that had targeted the sub pens.

The crew of Memphis Belle had to penetrate a protective screen of German fighters, then thread their way through a thick blanket of anti-aircraft fire over the sub pens.
