WWII England Flying Fortress Crew

One of the greatest air armadas of the war struck deep into the Reich, including military objectives in Berlin, in daylight on April 18, 1944, bringing the total weight of bombs dropped on the German capital close to the 40,000 ton mark. Up to 1,000 Fortresses and Liberators, escorted by another 1,000 long-range fighters made the attack from bases in Britain. Of all this force only 19 U.S bombers and six fighters are missing.
