Flying Fortresses of the 379th Bomb Group head home, escorted by P-51s of the 4th Fighter Group, following a 1944 mission into Germany. Based at Kimbolton, the 379th flew more sorties and dropped a greater bomb tonnage than any other group in the Mighty 8th Air Force. Carol Dawn, the lead plane in this painting, flew over 120 missions, the third highest of its group, before returning intact to the U.S. after completing its tours of duty with multiple crews during the second World War. Four squadrons made up the 379th, including the 524th, 525th, 526th & 527th, and logged some of the most colorful and celebrated missions of any American heavy bomber unit.
