‘Our Gal Sal’, a B-17G of the 351st Bomb Squadron taxis to the main runway at Thorpe Abbotts ready to get airborne and join the rest of the 100th Bomb Group on their latest mission, spring 1944.

Taking us to the Norfolk countryside, Jim skilfully portrays the beginning of one of the early Eighth Air Force missions to the heart of the Reich.

Earning the nickname ‘The Bloody Hundredth’ due to the heavy losses they suffered, it seems only fitting that the 100th Bomb Group have been chosen to represent all those who flew so heroically with the Eighth from England during the Second World War.

Internationally respected for his unique authenticity and ability to emphasize the interaction between man and machine, the acute attention to detail, including such elements as the white bicycle belonging to Staff Sergeant Joe Urice, would not have been possible without the direct input of leading historians and members of the Executive Committee and Board of Directors of the 100th Bomb Group Foundation, By officially endorsing the edition it creates a remarkable and lasting collector’s piece to be cherished for future generations.
