Remark Photographer
**-**** Taken by my Great Uncle during World War Two. This was taken from a gunners position on top of the aircraft. This photo was taken while on a bombing run over Germany. I have come to find out that there are not many photos left of this squadron and that not many were taken. Sadly my Great Uncle has passed away and his wife and his brother gave me permission to share this photo with A. net.

A majestic tragic piece of history. The average age of the guys flying those birds must have been something like 19-20 years. Incredible! Thanks for making these photos available.

A visitor from Netherlands posted Mon November 30, 2009:
Great piture. These machines weren't the best. The Germans had very good fighters / pilots and took them out in large numbers.. The more we must respect those bomber crews, men with ideals, fears and families like us..

My fathers cousin or my 2nd cousin, Paul Stern, flew on bombing missions like this in the second world war but unfortuntely his plane was hit, knocking out the landing gear causing the plane to cartwheel upon landing and tragically killing all on board.
