cannon, is face to face with the tail gunner of mortally wounded B-17G-50DL, SN#44-6291 on the 303rd. Bomb Group's August 15, 1944 mission to Weisbaden, Germany. It is the crewâ€™s tenth mission and the aircraftâ€™s fourteenth. All five of the B-17s in the painting went down on the first pass of the tightly grouped FW-190â€™s.
