The B-17 Flying Fortress was the combative airframe of choice for the 463rd Bombardment Squadron (Heavy). Interesting fact…on one particular mission involving a large number of other bombing squadrons, the signal to abort the bombing operation due to inclement weather was never received by the 463rd. Thus, the now solo squadron flew alone and unprotected toward the objective. Along the way, the 463rd was attacked by a squad of enemy fighters, resulting in some loss of the squadron. But the 463rd managed to miraculously fight off the enemy fighters, again all by its exposed lonesome, and even then, still fly to the objective and complete the mission!
Winding up like a major league baseball pitcher, a rabbit drawn in caricature, smiling with greatest delight at the inevitable annihilation of our nation’s despicable enemies, cranks back his right front paw to pitch and heave a heavy red aerial bomb with unconquerable force from the clouds at altitude. He’s leaning backwards, left leg kicked high into the stratosphere, his eyes wide open, staring intently, directly at the bullseye, moments before hurling the lethal baseball-bomb with ferocious velocity, straight over home plate and down the gullet of the nasty no-gooders threatening our nation and our allies.
