In stock

A Tribute to the Bomber crews of the 8th Airforce, who lost over 6,000 bombers, 47,000 casualties and 26,000 deaths during the campaign over Europe. The print depicts B-17's of the famouse100th Bomber Group "The Bloody Hundredth" at Thorpe Abbotts in the Winter of 1945.

Thorpe Abbotts in East Anglia could be very cold and snowy during the Winter, East Anglia is flat and there is little to stop the cold winds of Winter or blowing snow. During a break in the cold and murky weather B-17's are readied for another operation over Germany.

The print is signed by 10 Aircrew who flew with the 100th Bomber Group "The Bloody Hundredth."  Including in the matting are the signatures of an additional 6 pilots from the 100th bomber group and a set of wings.

We will not be taking any new orders between June 12th and July 4th due to vacation. Orders will be back online on July 5th.
