The picture was taken after TRADE WINDS and her crew had completed 25 combat missions, shortly before the transition to B-17s. This was an ill-fated change for the crew, as they were shot down 6 Aug in B-17G 43-37805 while flying their 30th and last required combat mission. Lt Edward Reichel died two days later in a Berlin hospital; the others all became prisoners of war.
