Regensburg-No Place to Hide

The strike against the twin targets of Regensburg and Schweinfurt on 17th August 1943 saw some of the most intense air fighting of the war. The B-17 crews were flying deep into Southern Germany and well beyond the range of any escort fighters. Waiting for them were some of the best fighter pilots in the Luftwaffe. None had a finer reputation than JG26, which had battled exclusively on the Western Front against the ever-growing might of the RAF and USAAF. 

This rare print (published in 1996) has long been sold out here, but we have uncovered a packet of thirty prints in mint condition from the rare SEVEN signature edition, hand signed in pencil by the following seven JG26 Me109 pilots.
