Photo 2/3

A B-17 from the 91st Bomb Group (H) (Wee Willie) is going down in flames after being hit by German jet fighters and flak. Wee Willie was in the 322nd Squadron and the pilot was Lt. Robert Fuller. This photo is part of a sequence of photos taken on April 8, 1945. Wee Willie was on its 128th mission when it was struck by flak while flying over its bombing target. It was the next to last B-17 from the 91st Bomb Group which was lost in combat.
