This painting is the reverse view of the Keith Ferris, B-17 mural in the National Air & Space Museum in Washington, DC. Lieutenant Klaus Bretschneider maneuvers his heavily armed and armored FW-190A-8/R8, against B-17s “Marie,” “Special Delivery” and “Bonnie B” of the 303rd Bomb Group over Trier, Germany on 15 August, 1944. “Rauhbautz VII” was the legend painted on Bretschneider’s well known Red 1 of II Group, Jagdgeschwader 300. This legend translates loosely as “Street Fighter” or “Young man who likes to fight.” It also indicates that this is his seventh aircraft.
