Limited to just 850 copies, this Glicee print depicts the loss of "Liberty Run" a B-17G of the 364 Bomb Squadron of the 305th Bombardment Group on 22nd February 1944. During the "Big Week", at the end of February 1944, "Liberty Run" was lost whilst setting out on the return journey from a diversionary bombing raid on Albourg in Denmark. Coming under attack from Hertbert Christmann (Black 6+) of JG11, the Flying Fortress was shot down over the North Sea and although all of the crew were seen to bale out and despite extensive searches of the area, none were rescued.
The original oil painting was commissioned by a descendant of one of the crew.
