Regensburg - No Place to Hide by Mark Postlethwaite
On 17 August 1943, a daring double strike took place against the ME109 assembly plant at Regensburg and the ball bearing plant at Schweinfurt. As the B-17s of the 4th Bomb Group crossed the Dutch coast en route for Regensburg, the fighters of JG 26 based nearby commenced a protracted aerial assault but were unable to prevent the ultimate success of the mission. In this print we experience the dramatic intensity of the air battle over Holland as a pair of ME109Gs from 9/JG 26 flash through the formation of the 100th Bomb Group, while an ME110 (lower right) stalks the B-17s and reports their position.
