In the night skies over Osterfeld during a raid carried out in December 1944, a Lancaster from 626 Squadron is forced to take evasive action as an Me110 G-4 night-fighter make a close pass beneath it. Both crews are locked in a desperate duel as they bid to out-manoeuvre each other.
The Lancaster, hampered by damage, jinks through the darkness whilst the Me110 pilot dives away to avoid the stream of tracer emanating from the Lancaster’s front turret. The contest could go either way.
The original paper edition of this image was released in 2000, it was an extraordinarily successful piece which sold out immediatley upon it's release and has remained one of the rarest and most sought after items on the secondary market since that time.
