"Skipper Comes Home" depicts a B-17 that was one of the longest serving during WWII. Skipper was badly damaged in November. 1944, then repaired going on to finish the war with over 100 combat missions.

The print shows Skipper coming into land at the airfield of the 367 Squadron of the 306th Bomber Group at Thurleigh Bedfordshire England.  Skipper has been patched in the tail and body due to flak damage but not yet repainted as missions are critical and downtime for painting can wait.

The print is signed by three B-17 pilots who all flew more than 28 missions, Paul Greer, William Kincheloe, and Don Nielson. It is also signed by Robert Paris who flew 52 combat missions.

The remarqued print comes with a complementary pencil print "Skipper Home at Last" by Robert Taylor.
