Artist's Description

‘Mission Complete’

A section of 374th Fighter Squadron start the long descent down to base, at Old Warden, after another long escort patrol. Timed late in 1944 the US 8th Air Force aircraft no longer made any pretence at camouflage paint finish but adopted unique, and generally colourful, squadron identities. The ’peel-off’, or split-S, manoeuvre is generally the best and fastest way to lose height at the end of a mission, it also allows the aircraft to spread out a little for individual approach and landing.
