The Belle Under Attack (Artist Proof)
Signed Limited Edition Print - World War II - Simon Atack
The 91st Bomb Group's target on Dec 20, 1942 was a large German fighter base and nearby aircraft factory south-east of Paris. This print recreates a moment of intense drama as the 324th Bomb Squadron come under attack just short of the target. Memphis Belle skipper, Bob Morgan, holds his B-17 steady for his gunners, as an Fw190 comes flashing through the formation. Today the Belle's gunners will score at least one confirmed air victory, hit the target, and make it safely home to Bassingbourn. Bob Morgan and his Memphis Belle crew will go on to make history, becoming the first 8th Air Force bomber to complete a 25 combat mission tour over the skies above occupied Europe and Nazi Germany.
