Struggling for height as she crosses the South coast of England, a damaged B-17 of the 91st Bomb Group heads home to Bassingbourne. With its bomb doors jammed open, an engine feathered and streaming smoke, the battle scarred B-17 and her injured crew are nearing the completion of yet another mission over Germany. Shadowed for most of their way back by P-51Ds of the 352nd Fighter Squadron , the B-17 "Ragged Irregulars" was assured protection against enemy aircraft. Running very low on fuel after a long day of escort duties, the P-51 pilots will soon need to peel off and make for their base at Raydon.
