Artist's Description

B17 Series

486th Bomb Group

The 486th was based at Sudbury, East Anglia, from early 1944 onwards during WW2 taking part in many of the daylight bombing missions of that time. A critical part of the B17 missions was ensuring that the necessary defensive formation was put together at an early stage of the flight. Some considerable time was required after take-off in forming up to 800 aircraft into a single effective group. The image shows some of the 486th in the early stages of formation join-up climbing out of the East Anglia base – they would return to Sudbury by mid afternoon, certainly one of ’the longest days’.
