Many strikes were carried out against the Japanese stronghold at Rabaul. The attack pictured above took place on November 2, 1943 when B-25s and P-38s of the Fifth Air Force braved the massive anti-aircraft defenses of Rabaul to press home their attacks. The B-25 shown above is flown by Major Paul "Pappy" Gunn, and is modified as a strafer with four 50-caliber machine guns in the nose, and two each mounted on the fuselage just underneath the wings. Combined with the '50s in the top turret and using skip-bombing techniques, these aircraft could inflict tremendous damage.

Note: like all Valiant Clan prints, the actual print has a white border with text at the bottom displaying the aircraft name and a description of the action portrayed. (See the P-51B Mustang as an example.)  The above scan only shows the image (and not the surrounding border or text), and is merely meant to give you an idea of the image content.
