On 13 April 1944, Captain Jerry Osnadick’s B-17 Bomber was badly damaged during a bombing run on the Messerschimtt factory in Augsburg. With two of four engines failed, he wrestled the wounded bomber back across the English Channel towards safety.

As he approached the fabled White Cliffs of Dover, two P47s of the 375th Fighter Group joined with him to escort him in to the airfield.

Immediately after landing, the propellor of #3 engine fell off the engine entirely! It, and Captain Osnadock, had performed their duties and returned to base safely.
