A WELCOME RETURN The Mighty Eighth Portfolio
As the late summer sun starts to set over the peaceful English countryside, the relieved, but weary, crew of ’Ol Gappy’ of the 379th Bomb Group, nurse their battle scarred B-17G back to their base at Kimbolton. Close behind them, the remainder of the group, relieved to see familiar territory, make their final approaches after a gruelling mission to Meresburg on 11 September 1944. The 379th Bomb Group flew more sorties than any other Bomb Group in the entire US Eighth Air Force, and the B-17, ’Ol Gappy’, survived to fly a total of 157 missions during the war, probably more than any other B-17 in the Mighty Eighth.
Released as a pair with CLASH OF EAGLES as part of The Mighty Eighth Portfolio, this compelling piece is available both individually or as part of a pair.
Every print in all of the editions has been hand numbered and personally signed by the artists as well as two highly respected B-17 pilots who flew with the 8th Air Force in Europe:
- Lieutenant Colonel Robert Gossman
- Flight Lietenant Leonard L. Spivey
- 26.5 x 19.5 inches
