Featuring a B-24 bomb raid over Yap Island, targeting the airfield. The main B-24 depicted is a 'J' variant #44-40598, recently off the production line and unpainted. The name taken from the pilot Lt. Gerald Coleman.
The crew was part of the 13th Air Force, 307th Bombardment Group and 372nd Squadron. On June 25th, 1944, they bombed Yap along with four other squadrons.
Tragically, after bombs away their plane was shot down by a Japanese Zero that did a head-on pass. Their cockpit was hit with 20mm shells likely killing the pilots. The plane crashed in the water two miles south of the airfield. No parachutes were seen.
