Flying a twilight mission in his P-61 Black Widow on October 24, 1944, Colonel Johnson and his radar operator have picked up a formation of three Fw190s; stealthily closing on their quarry in the gathering dusk, 'O.B.' makes one quick and decisive strike, bringing down the enemy leader with two short bursts of fire. Banking hard, as the Fw190 pilot prepares to bale out, he brings his blazing guns to bear on a second Fw190, the tracer lighting up the fuselage of his P-61.
This piece is adorned with a spectacular Nicolas Trudgian pencil remarque, of a P-61 in flight.
The print is signed by 422nd's famous C.O., Colonel Oris B. Johnson, together with THREE other P-61 night fighter pilots who flew the Black Widow in combat in the European Theatre:
- Lieutenant Colonel Herman Ernst
- Major Robert Graham
- Major General Oris B. Johnson
- First Lieutenant Bob Tierney
