When Prayers Are Answered - B-17 Bombers by William Phillips

The scene depicts a B-17F of the 390th Bomb Group, 570th Bomb Squadron, approaching the cliffs of Dover, having successfully completed yet another grueling mission to Germany's industrial heartland. As they near the coast and the danger of enemy aircraft diminishes, an escort of P-47's breaks away to recover at their base. The clouds part and rays of sunlight and hope stream down on "Betty Boop, The Pistol Packing Mama" and her crew, as their prayers are answered again.

Counter-signers: Colonel James R. Geary, Jr., Lieutenant Colonel Nathaniel "Gus" Mencow, Technical Sergeant Shirl Hoffman, Master Sergeant Clifford Puckett. This print was released in June of 1993.

William S. Phillips honors the B-17 bombers who went in, without fighter cover, to pound Germany’s industrial heartland. “I spotlight ‘Betty Boop the Pistol Packin’ Mama’ (of the 390 the Bomb Group, 570th Bomb Squadron) as she makes it back once again to the white cliffs of Dover accompanied by two P-47’s,” Phillips says. “But the sense of relief I tried to create with sparkling seas and golden skies is for all the brave men who fought for their country.
