B-17 Panoramic

What an amazing photo! This photo and the story comes to us from our friends at WWII Bomber Boys. Be sure to head over to their site to check them out.

Here's a little about the photo:

"In the Bomber Boys book there is a large panoramic print of a group shot of the 401st Squadron of the 91st Bomb Group, brought to me by a family member from Iowa. Having never seen this image before, I was quite surprised when I saw it again as a large print at his display. It's in the lower left corner of the above image.

When I mentioned it to him, he showed me the back of the print, which detailed the fate of the pictured aircraft just four days after this image was made. Apparently it was involved in a mid-air collision with another B-17 during the bomb run on their target, and tragically all 20 air crew were lost."

To see the rest of the photos and the story, head over to WWII Bomber Boys.
