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 — among them, Lt. Col. Joe Bean — 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. H, this limited edition, 16"x 11½" print is signed by the artist and by Lt. Col. Bean!
