B-17 "Knockout Dropper" of the 303rd Bomb Group at Molesworth, England. This photograph captures the crew chief Sgt. Stanley Jacobs painting on the 50th mission bomb while pilot John P. Manning looks on. Flying out of Molesworth with the 359th Bomb Squadron, this aircraft was the first in the Eight AAF to complete 50 and then 75 missions. The "Knockout Dropper" also participated in the disastrous Schweinfurt raid and survived.
