Where The Eagles Gathered by Robert Taylor
WHERE THE EAGLES GATHER
by Robert Taylor
On the 5th of March the B-24 heavy bombers of the 448th Bomb Group took off from England, their mission - to destroy the Luftwaffe facilities at Limoges aerodrome in western France, a typical mission for the men of the US Eighth Air Force in the months that prcceded D-Day. Success today would save many lives when that time came.
But waiting for them were the BF-109s of JG2, ready to rip into the attacking force at the first opportunity. Luckily for the bomber crews they had one of the finest fighter escorts in the Mighty Eighth, Don Blakeslee's
4th Fighter Group - " The Eagles"
Steve Pisanos, one of the Fourth's most deadly Aces, and fellow P-51B pilots arrive quickly on the scene to break up the attack. The damaged Liberator now has a chance to get home.
