Stan Stokes. On December 10, 1941, during a bombing raid against Japanese vessels, Captain Colin Kelly's B-17 came under attack from Zero fighters led by 64-victory ace Saburo Sakai. As Kelly piloted the crippled aircraft back to the Philippines, he ordered his crew to bail out, and his attempt to crash-land the B-17 failed, killing him. His dramatic effort, combined with his earlier bombing of a Japanese ship, made him one of the war's first heroes. Hand numbered, this limited edition, 16"x 11½" print is signed by the artist and by Saburo Sakai.
