COMBAT OVER THE REICH
Approaching their target at the oil refinery at Zwickau, 60 miles south west of Dresden, the 452nd Bomb Group's B-17 Fortresses were bounced by 28 Me262 jets from JG 7.
Screaming in from the six o/clock position, the jet pilots singles out the 3rd division just as they began their bombing run. The B-17 Fortress crew, having lost part of the tailplane, desperately defend their unwieldy bomber against the determined high-speed, by laying a wall of lead in the path of the Me262s.
Each print in Robert Taylor's Combat over the Reich, the first in his "Wings of the Luftwaffe" collection, is signed and numbered by the artist, together with five of the Luftwaffe's most respected Aces who flew the Me262 during World War II.
