Artist's Description

B17 Series

‘Evening Return’

Highlighted by the late sun a B17, separated from the main formation, makes a quiet return to base. This aircraft part of the 381st based at Ridgewell, close to Cambridge, and served in many of the classic encounters of the latter part of WW2. The image set in late 1944 shows the aircraft now left in the natural metal finish, camouflage was no longer seen to be necessary and the loss of a significant weight of cammo paint was a distinct advantage. Cambridge was well frequented by the 8th Air Force crews and at least one of the local pubs still has a fine display of ‘Mighty 8th’ memorabilia!
